A Gif made with images of that video.




BTW, There was a new core jump today, I thought that last was the last. I don't know if we I bad the calculation of floors or is it that the core is going to the top?

You just called the largest windows ever used on a residential building small. Which makes about as much sense as the rest of your comment

Yup.


Totally the same.

Didn't see this mentioned.
I was killing time so I saw this new series called "Gotham" which is about the world around Bruce Wayne once his parents were killed, it's main character is Gordon as a newbie.

Anyway, on the 'inbetween' scenes, I saw this tower LOL. I don't remember if it was the first or second episode, but if I have even MORE time to kill I'll look for it again but I doubt it, it's not THAT good haha.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotham_(TV_series) (says it was produced etc in NYC)

I think this building is great, yes its different and that is a good thing. In 10 years I am sure people will look back and claim how great of a design it is when it is surrounded by glass towers.

That's a pretty funny quote, considering that it has thin concrete frames around large picture windows.
