Either way it moved on for bigger and better... For how big BOA is there would have been no room. It got demolished to make way for a much bigger and better NYC landmark! This building will be the tallest building built outside the new WTC complex in NYC since the 1970's! As said before, not everything can be preserved. I'm glad to see the change...

Looking Good

I really need to get over to New York. Loads of my mates have been within the last year in like really small groups at different times and not told me they were going. How stupid is that, we could have all gone at the same time and taken the place over for a week.

Thanks for the info. In my country they build almost every building with a concrete construction.

Hey, I like how the glass is turning out.

I just wish this scraper peaked a bit higher than its neighbors though ;_; it seems kinda hidden as it is.

Wow, what a fantastic project, I wasn't aware of thies tower at all, I love the design and from what I can see so far a great use of high quality materials. Certainly a future landmark.
