Thanks.

I guess that could explain why so many workers were gathered on top of the core though.

Still not very visible from the west due to the IBM building.

I don't get why some floors have all their windows done and others don't.

Awesome! Thanks! Looks like there is new uncovered window. Look how blue it is on one of the pics.

Blue? Looks rather dark green to me. I think this color fits this tower best.

Those covers will probably stay on until the building is completed (to protect the glass)?

432 FROM 30 ROCK.

Very, very soon, we'll see the building popping over the former AT&T Building

Indeed, it doesn't stand out yet from the street because it's in the middle of the plot instead of directly on the sidewalk. It will be noticed from further away soon.

Just as most towers this glass of course looks blue when reflecting the sky, and it will look much darker ( indeed maybe greener ) from close up and from above.

Wow, i didn't realize it was so noticeable already from the Rock, in no time this will be dominating the skyline.

I guess that's way is it taking a little longer as usual for this core jump, there must be something special because of the MEP.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Not sure why I didn't notice it before, but the bottom 8 floors have square windows without the window sills.
This will mean that the rest of the floors will have slightly higher window spaces than I originally thought.
I would assume that the mech floors (apart from the bottom one) are the same height as the rest of the floors.
I will update my model to take into account this new data, and I will also add the base.

Does this mean the building is only ~160m? Since older measurments were used from the old inaccurate diagram on SSP. My new diagram was added to the database, it has the correct number of floors and should contain the correct height as well.
