Guys!! I can commit $80m. I was able to get $75.00 from my piggy bank to make it an even $80m.

If you guys can come up with the rest plus closing costs, I’ll let you guys use it 1 weekend every 3 months. Deal?

so, the word is that they have been getting winded out with the crane about 4-5 days per week for the past few weeks.

whenever they can get to work they will start the tuned mass damper at the roof.

does this spell the end of the 432 Park type building in NYC for a while or are there enough Chinese billionaires out there to take up the slack?

exactly!! People are acting like the US has no Billionnaires. Lol. the U.S. has almost 500 Billionnaires ranking number 1 ahead of China with 152, then Russia with 111 according to Forbes. That number from Russia in 2015 is shrinking considerably.

those photos are breathtaking!

Eventually you would see a 3rd bright light cluster in Manhattan once the Hudson Yards is completed.

We only need 5110 people to each give $16144.81, and you will be able to share the penthouse with 13 other people.... for a whole day!

Maintenance will be tens of thousands of dollars a month...good luck!

Not sure how you say it fits in perfectly when it sticks out like a sore thumb in all those pictures.

I get how some people would find it jarring, but it doesn't stick out THAT much does it? For one thing, Midtown is already a hodge podge of architectural styles, so the context is appropriate. Height-wise, I think blends in better than the initial renders suggested, now that we've seen it from many different vantages. It sticks out the way the esb does, imo. You can make the that look overly tall relative to its neighbors if you capture it from certain angles too.
