That they aren't actually Windows... they are simply cladding made to look like Windows, I think that is far better than a blank wall. The Windows may not even be fake the whole way up. As the building goes up the core may be able to recede back into the tower.

Edit, nvm the core goes all the way up on the south facade.

Yes, but as the core goes up the forces on it get smaller and perhaps allowing for real window penetrations. Also, the architectural program might change on the upper floors and it may make sense to have real windows on that wall.

This is probably because the super-skinny trend over the last couple years has completely screwed with my perception... but this is actually turning out a little bulkier than I expected.

Maybe, but it could also have to do with the fact that the first renderings had a octogonal floor plan, while the actual tower has a square one. So the side walls are now wider.

I think when it's three times its current height it will look pretty damned skinny.

They've started with the lime stone! It's looking very nice, I'm really excited about this tower!

There are lots of buildings that aren't "actually buildings" like the telephone exchange towers. And the reason they use concrete over real stone is because concrete is more durable, non absorbent, and sterile. Stone can absorb air pollution and become discolored, while fungus can grow in it, but not specially treated concrete. This is using modern technology to build in traditional style. This is the future. The more you huff and puff over it, the more you're going to be pooping your pants. There's no turning back. It's sad that for an architecture love, you don't know much about architecture at all.

It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. It's looking very similar to the revised renderings that leaked out, showing a much blockier, much more post-modern building with balconies.

Still no detailed, official renderings and cladding is going up.

Love this building! The art-deco stylish fits really well in NY. Congrats!

Now, that's some progress!

Will these fake windows be randomly lit at night?

Maybe, but I doubt it. The core walls are solid concrete. I don't see any way of changing a light bulb (aside from hiring Spiderman).

Most of my posts get deleted, but this one is still around, amusing. I almost forgot why I didn't took part of the discussions on SSC for a long time. Also it seems I am the only one who thinks that New York deserves better than this. But what do I know, I don't have a clue.
