because the BoA tower is going to be taller than the channel 4 tower, are they going to move all the broadcasting hardware over, otherwise tv signals are really going to suck for some of those people.

Or im just being an ididiot

The antenna for the conde nast tower (4 times sq) goes up to i think 1150. so its well above the structure of BOA. they are going to keep the antenna. that way they will 3 working ones. this Esb, and freedom.

And now for my next set of questions for some ny'ers to answer

1. WHy are no hot construction workers working on the facade, i mean come on

2. Is the concrete core a security measure or just because it makes stronger towers (out here everything is concrete)

Other than that i think the facade looks ok. But i havent seen it in the sun and theres a huge difference between how a facade looks in the shade and how it looks in the sun.

Im excited to see how this turns out though. Now its time for a
