I love this shot. The 1931 McGraw-Hill Building looks like its gaining a fantastic backdrop from that angle.

The Orion is one of those rarities that is turning out better than its renders. The cladding is looking pretty shmick indeed!!

That is not a black window what would be the point of that? There's just no netting b/c they are placing the window in there.

Come on....seriously....common sense?

I really like the facade, some point of views it turns very blue and with some cirtain angles it turns so metallic...

Thanks always TowersNYC for your pictorial updates, in this thread and the other NYC scrapers u/c.

BTW What is that amazing completed slender tower just to the right in the below pic? The one with an orange-ish coloring, windows and the girl/woman posted on the side?

I find that very surprising that one of the cranes is going down b/c the glass isn't finished yet.
