This building could honestly be another "Verizon Building" and I'd be happy, as long as they tear down that crappy ugly building that was here first.

Taken the 21st by me--250 W 55th in the background. Will be fun to see 237 rising between the two in a few months as well, excavation is well underway for that one!



Full update:

Rising of the ground. Good update.
It looks a bit slim though.

Yeah, if 230m is the DOB height (last occupied floor).

Nice top btw, seems like the render was spot- on:

I think so too. This tower looks pretty good to me; tall and slender.

This will not really stand out by it's height, but maybe by it's shape and cladding.

Agreed, it still gives a nice addition to the skyline.

Is there any chance someone can make a rudimentary model based on the stuff we've seen? I can't work out from those models what it actually looks like. I know, I feel very stupid.

Yeah I know it sounds really stupid, but it's the poor light in the first image, silver colouring in the second, and the low angle in both that's confusing me. Just something from a different, maybe higher angle, would help fill in the gaps. I mean I don't know about anyone else, but I can't quite work out what the shape of the two sections of the tower look like in cross section, all I can see is that they're irregular.
