It's a very professional looking building. The cladding looks very nice on it.

actually 256m is the top of the bldg. the 228m height is roof slab. should stand out where it is, especially with spire reaching well over 300m/1000ft!

Oh come on, a spire? You know no one on this forum gets excited about spires. Spires are useless unless they're using this spire as a lightning rod.

when i first saw this building's rendering, i thought that it looked like a more modern version of Toronto's first canadian place, and it looks like the building's living up to that resemblance. it's looking better from a distance than up close unless you like HSBC-style inside-out architecture.

the spire at the top is nothing but cheap height-gaining, but hey, 256m to the fins already will bring the building into nyc's top 10 tallest category. so, it's still pretty darn tall.

it should've been built on the site of 1 bryant park though. it'd have more friends there.

Liking it a lot, but could someone please tell me whats going on with that Times Square Plaza building across the street. Ground was broken, the site was worked on for a short whil and then seemlessly abandoned. The other day I peeked through the scaffolding to look at the site and shrubs had grown everywhere

Im glad its being built on 8th ave, it will give the skyline even more width.

The NY times tower will end up being the 8th tallest in NYC, correct?

Pipe Falls at New York Times Construction Site, Injuring 3 in Car

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/03/ny...3accident.html

By THE NEW YORK TIMES
Published: May 3, 2006


Three people — two adults and a 2½-year-old boy — were injured yesterday when a steel pipe from a building under construction on Eighth Avenue crashed through the sunroof of their car, the police said.

The police said the pipe, three feet long, fell off The New York Times Company's new building, which is under construction at 625 Eighth Avenue, between 40th and 41st Streets.

The car, a black Honda Accord, was northbound on Eighth Avenue around 3:15 p.m. when the pipe hit the sunroof, the police said.

A law enforcement official said that the driver, Abdelazim Elsayed, 28, of Phoenixville, Pa., was struck on the shoulder, and that his wife, Heather, also 28, was cut on the head.

Their son, Blaze, was in the back seat. He was scratched on the face, said a police spokeswoman, Officer Doris Garcia.They were treated for minor injuries at St. Vincent's Midtown Hospital, Officer Garcia said. They were later released, hospital officials said.

Inspectors issued citations for four violations after the accident and ordered work stopped until repairs were made and the building reinspected, she said.

One violation was for failure to safeguard the public and property during construction, she said. Another was for having improper vertical netting around the edges of an upper floor of the building. Each of the four violations carries a penalty of up to $2,500.

The department issued citations for two similar violations earlier in the year, she said.

The building, opposite the Port Authority Bus Terminal, is scheduled to be completed early next year.

Here in Brazil all buildings in construction are completely covered with a nylon net (just like Hanoi Road in Hong Kong) exactly to prevent these kind of accidents.

Fantastic pic Timo van den Noort

Wait untill they finish the cladding of the NY Times Builiding & put the the spire atop. It will look bloody amazing

BTW It looks like the NY Times Builiding has almost topped out to roof. Only about 2-3 floors to go.

...
