Yes, the various different angles will certainly look very interesting as the steel frame shapes it's way skyward.

Nice design. Facade looks rather dull when not reflecting something else

It was fun at Bryant Park actually, watching the runners race around the block.

Did anyone else watch the NY marathon?

I don't know what that race was there in that photo but it certainly wasn't the New York Marathon. The route for the genuine marathon doesn't pass by anywhere near One Bryant Park.

I agree with emutiny now but I have not seen the entire building yet. So far I'm on the bridge with this facade.

this building will mark the first two 1,000 footers next to eachother since the old WTC. dont even bother telling me otherwise because of the spire vs. antenna bullshit. yeah, maybe on paper it doesnt, but theyre honestly trying to tell you you dont see a 1,000+ft. structure with your own naked eyes? get the **** outta here. antennas should count.

The progress of this building is mind-blowing. I can imagine Tower 2 with these construction pics.

Jeez, this building is a total beast. Who says NYC isn't in it anymore? You gotta be nuts to even propose such a thought during a period where five 1000 footers are being designed and constructed in the city along with an advanced stage of planning for 2-4 towers at the MSG site. We can be seeing a building with a 1400' roof proposed there within a few months. It's actually a resurgence here in NYC if anything.

I can't wait to see the BOA when it's completed.
And woah, that's a s**tload of 1,000+ footers being planned and going up all over the nation. I hope our new 1,400 footer makes it.
