I've posted many recent photos. Basically, the tenants are emptying out one by one. Many have vacated the various buildings.

I agree, and the 1,350' is great! The tower's south facade slants back, the east-west facades taper, and the other details, like the complex crowns, are amazing!

We all want this to start ASAP, but we'll need a bit of patience.

I just spoke with someone from SLG who works on the site. He said that almost all of the office tenants are gone and that the rest will be gone by the end of the year. He also stated that Annie Moore's and Patrick Comway's will move before Jan. Those pubs and Modells are the last remaining retail tenants amongst the four it five buildings that comprise this site.

I just spoke with a tenant who stated that his company is about to vacate and all other tenants will leave in the next few months.

I've become extremely excited about this tower. The design has really grown on me with the combination of its height, form, terra cotta & glass cladding... it's going to look awesome.

One Vanderbilt will be a quintessential New York tower of the modern age. To me at least anyway, it screams New York.

Considering time they need to demolish existing buildings and time for doing excavation, they might start on construction this time next year... Reaching street level early 2016....

Two years of building, and if everything goes well, toping out early 2018....

But no one can move in before the developers finish the infrastructure improvements in the area that they promised, no later than 2020... topping out more likely by 2019 but hey, if the developers are motivated enough who knows?

I think this will grow on most people once it's a good way up.

Heh yeah, those are CPU-bustingly huge photos, but great nonetheless. The render from the south looks pretty darned good, but the one looking East less so -- the crown is still pretty chunky and awkward from that angle. Are my eyes playing tricks on me or are the proportions of the crown slightly different between the two?

For all the praise being heaped on the rest of the tower -- the materials, the way it meets the street, etc. -- criticism of the crown has been nearly universal, so I imagine (hope?) KPF is in the process of refining it.

Edit: the height seems underwhelming for ~1450 ft. Maybe it's the distance.
