Thanks for these! Photos never really quite do justice to the sense of scale. And I have to say, from many of those angles, this tower appears pretty beefy.

Yeah there's an obvious parallel there. I think this tower's thin profile and "stack of towers" design, sheathed in the vertical facade elements of the original WTC would have been perfect.

I think she looks so lonely from certain angels. I never thought that a skyscraper could stand out like this in the manahattan skyline. Now i cant wait for Nordsrom Tower and other supertalls to rise so she gets some company up in the clouds.

^ For me, a skyscraper stands out if it doesn't have any company, i.e. no tall buildings around it. We can witness this phenomenon with "towers in the park". With 432 PA it's different: the building is located in a very dense neighborhood, surrounded by many 200m+ buildings. And in 3 years it will be the 3rd tallest building on the block.

No. Never. Absolutely impossible. That picture is fake, sorry artistically enhanced, 100% certainty.

Re that pic: Is it just me or are there still a couple of dark, seemingly out of place panels on the north side of One 57?
