Welcome back at the forum, Imre! What a nice surprise... I've got to get used to see your mark on NYC pictures, after years of Dubai photos. Have some more beautiful days in the Big Apple!

From the East, 8 Spruce Street looks complete now... But there's still the elevator at the West facade and surely lots of interior work to do. www.lowermanhattan.info has the opening date at 2012, but I can't image that this should last so long.

In spite of heavy and taller competition (the giant Abraj Al-Bait Endowment and even more masterpieces like Al Hamra Tower, Pearl River Tower or Infinity Tower), ‎this Gehry tower has quite good chances to be voted for "skyscraper of the year 2011", I think.

Not only shockingly identical to the renderings, but better in fact!

It looks absolutely stunning, and the effect works even better from a distance. A+

It still has the elevator attached and the apartments are far from finished.

Just to clarify things: The height to the top of the parapet wall is 264.15 m. To the top of the cooling tower bulkhead it is 265.18 m. The height of 271.27 m. is to the tip of the lightning rod, which is not included in the official height. The official height of the building should read 265.18 m.
