Really? Sounds promising. Nice to have two supertalls on the same block.

I think much of Midtown near Central Park will be supertalls within a decade or two.

Truly magical.
This, to me, is the best part about skyscrapers in Manhattan.

No where else in the world, not even in Hong Kong, are towers built in the middle of the urban environment, like in NYC. Everywhere else they are set back and separated from the urban environment.

Today they did the second to last perimeter jump. I think it is possible that this very week they do another and final jump, effectively topping out this tower...
