This tower is great, but reflections on this pic moves it into another level. That is just amazing. I love NYC, I wanna come back

This should be complete now.

I can't get enough of 250W55th's cladding, it's amazing. This one is nice too.

It looks great in person, and it replaced very blighted structures.

Posted in 432 Park Avenue Thread. I was confused about the blue striped/ligthed cube in that picture, I've never seen it before. So I looked it up in Google Maps, this should be this building, right?

The real bonus is that it replaced blighted structures which were remnants of NYC's nadir.

It looks like two buildings.
I always think the cube at the top is a second building behind it, slightly higher and twisted around 45° degrees

Since 1717 Broadway contains two hotels, do those two hotels actually share the same amenities? For example, they share a main entrance and arrival lobby on 54th Street. They also share a fitness facility on the 34th floor.
