yeah, this tower was a bit boring in the renders (just another tall box), but the facade is so superb that for me it's now one of the better towers in town!

Just great!

I love how they gave the glass a green tint. They chose to compliment the McGraw-Hill Building rather than compete against it.

Is that NYTimes tower coming up a little closer to the camera or something else?

Either vandalism or construction-related.

@ chad

You can see a thick border on the top, which you can't see in the floor below, so I think it is topped out... They are finishing the facade.

Great update!

Thanks Carlos and TalB. Looking good for a modern residential tower...quite high for its area too.
