These are extra bracing between the core and perimeter that should occur at the double height mechanical floors. As i remember they were described in the structural study as 'outriggers'

it will be ridiculous saying that, I just find interesting the fact that the proportions of the windows and columns (or walls) looks exactly the same. I like this proportion because it looks like it's based on the "golden ratio"

hmmmm...
maybe those boxes will take the shape of glass in the near future?

maybe they're creating those setbacks you see on the Sears Tower and Burj Khalifa which are there to create wind vortexes to basically throw the wind off (from what i can remember) except for this building they have a roof over them

Earlier, the 59th camera gave us this cool close up of the top of the Chippendale...

This was posted on the 1wtc thread.
You can see 432 Park Avenue and the cranes if you look very closely.

Old but I imagine these pictures had never been seen before. My apologies if this was a re-post, otherwise.

Was looking at a document I downloaded from the NYC Bldgs site a while back (the doc has a date stamp from August 2011, so it might not be up to date).

Maybe the boxes relate to those "removable enclosure units"...?:




Also, while scrolling through this doc, I came across this notation, which I hadn't noticed before:



Anyone know what these "painted architectural louvres" might be?

Introduction

Hi everyone, this is my first post here at SkyscraperCity.

This building's been slowly growing on me since I found out about it on these forums earlier this year. I think it'll be a dramatic addition to the NYC skyline, and since I wanted to get a better idea of how it'll look when finished, I've done some quick renders. (Credits to user 57th&1st for the base photo for the second image)

When this is finished, there needs to be a photo from the top looking straight down. Just imagining that gives me vertigo.

Meh... personnaly myself I don't like the look of it... I was a little saddened that this was approved , I mean sure it's tall , but it just looks too bland and simple , then again the old Twin Towers were , and look at how beatuful they were

Only time will tell if I take a likening to this.

I think that this will be just okay during the day time. Nice height and all, but not an outstanding design. However, at dawn and the gloaming, this sucker's cladding will look like a stargate to an astral universe.
