Hi Guys how u doing?
I've heard that 440 PA will have two dampers to riduce the wind acceleration, one of this should be a water tank that will weigh like 1% of the total structure mass.
Do you know something else about that? Is this my information correct?
Please let me know !

I think you and AnOldBlackMarble were talking about using pools as tuned mass dampers the other day. Turns out, Comcast Center in Philadelphia utilizes a liquid one on its roof. Thought you'd like to know.

Since its on 432 Park Avenue, its height should also be 432 Meters instead of 426 Meters
