In that photo overlooking Central Park, 111 is set in front of 1345th 6th Avenue, the dark structure three blocks south, which is 625 feet tall. Trump Parc in front with the gold crown is 456 feet tall, so 111 is currently about 535 feet high. Another 100 feet or so to the first setback (on the southern side), according to the diagrams.

Yes that is definitely one of the coolest facades I've ever seen.

On the facade, it appears that the curvy metal bars are sitting off the window glass - at least in the middle of the windows.

It´s because they are sitting off of the actual glass. That was shown in renders before.

That will make it easy to get a squeegee in there.

The fake windows on the side look very convincing. Nobody would think there was a solid concrete wall behind that cladding.

Maybe they're secretly windshield wipers and they'll start windshield wiping on rainy days.
