Great!!!! It's glass and we love it
Looks like it will be behind the stell crosses, it would be nice to see their reflections on the glass surface.

the funny thing is that the plans for US7 were released a long time after the plans for NYT Tower. we all thought US7 was as an extended copy of our times building. so in fact .... your wrong.

Saw this and thought it was interesting.

Say Goodbye to Elevator Traffic

This is an odd piece of news, but Fujitec America has announced a new elevator system that it says can ease the bottlenecks of people waiting in lobbies and other “high-traffic areas.” Called the Destination Floor Guidance System, it’s actually working right now in the Metropolitan Park West Tower in downtown Seattle, and is meant to make your elevator trip faster by grouping people together who are going to the same floors. So basically, there are self-standing and wall-mounted kiosks with touch screens in common waiting areas and you just touch the screen to tell the system where you’re going. A message will then appear to tell you which car to ride. Predictive logic software is also installed and should lead the elevators to start stopping more frequently at the floors which get the most traffic. Next up is the New York Times building in Manhattan. Good times folks, good times.

spire-319m.
im trying to work out current height for diagrams. lev31?
going off elevations. i can see the lev27/28 plantrooms and currently the steel rises 3 floors above this.
thus lev31= 128m/420ft. so tower is approx half way up.
cheers
