Nice pics.

I always liked cross-bracing in office buildings.

Still at 39. Twelve more to go. That photo I'm guessing was taken either last week or earlier this week and not 1 or 2 days ago.

Beautiful shot TowersNYC. Gotta love the MIGHTY Empire State Building.


We gotta fill this city with more supertalls and bring the WTC back in the future.

So, partly-most of the eastside view from The Orion would be blocked from The Times?

^ Nothing yet... That has been an empty lot for years. Rumors are that is owned by a family who can't agree with eachother and have split decisions on selling the lot to different developers.

You know, I think I would definately like looking at the rods out the window rather than some cheap ass horizontal blinds that you just leave shut all day. Cause I am sure that is what the architect was going for with the design, you most likely won't need blinds at all.

I would love to buy that land, knock down that little building that occupies part of the plot and build a nice 1900ft (579meter) building in it's place.
