It will be very interesting to see this tower with all of the reflective windows open. I am sure it will look very different

I hate to rant, but that 53St cam needs to be raised. Now that the core has risen this morning, it is hoped that somebody,but somebody at Earhtcam will have the initiative to raise the 53 St camera, since now the core form is completely out of view.

Please bring back this nice teaser view they presented me a few days ago:

Agreed.
Anyway, since it raised finally, it is now the 31st tallest towers in NYC and the 89th tallest in the US.

I tried to make a 59th street webcam animation. It runs from end of november last year.

It would be foolish for me to think that I had any influence on EarthCam, but happily this morning, as I arrive at work this morning, and take a look at 432 Park Avenue, the 53ST cam is raised.

All day big pours going on, with buckets and with the pumps. Especially the perimeter so the forms will go up soon, maybe even tomorrow.
Meanwhile this thread has now over 2.000.000 views.

Looks like it is now taller than the GM building. Is that true?

I'm guessing they're still using the cameras as a selling tool because they've been very careful to make sure One57 is just outside the camera's view in each shot. Maybe as it passes 1000 feet they'll pull the shots wider. Hopefully, anyway. I really want to see this ugly building's effect on the skyline.

Yes, unless you saw it up close, it would hardly look any different, unless they went for a polished reflective finish on the stone. Cladding over the concrete with stone would have slowed down construction, would have added enough weight that the structure itself would have needed to be more reinforced than it is, and thus would have added much more expense. Some areas of the concrete looks like it needs cleaned (form oil residue maybe?), but they can deal with that later. Though I'm generally not fond of box buildings with unimaginative grid facades, this one is turning out okay.

Saw this on the skyline for the first time today, from the LIE. It is going to be extremely prominent.

I suppose you mean the Long Island Expy, then indeed, coming from the east it should be really prominent in the skyline.
