Wouldn't it be annoying for people working inside the building to have to look out the window with an obstructed view with all those "bars" across the windows?

That's a kind of "brise-soleil",wich was very common in the 60's.

If that picture is recent, then the Orion (pictured to the left) will be surpassed in height - so it should stand tall and proud.

They're working on floor numbers 31-33, so 20 more. You can expect it to top out in late May.

Classy building, looks set to be one of NY's finest. That facade is just great, the detailing is amazing.

the bars are going all the way up the facade of the tower....

..... an answer to an earlier question. It's one of the components of the building that makes it a 'green' building, from my understanding. The bars are meant to cut down on the amount of sunlight that enters the tower, therefore cutting the amount of AC use.

yes you're right!Here is a render showing how it will look inside.It seems it will cover the entire facade,and not only the base as I was supposing before.

You never know, maybe it won't feel that way when you are there inside. Btw, jail bars run up and down not sideways.
