I think he means the setting "3D buildings" in google earth

Its a checkbox somewhere on the bottom on your screen or in the sidebar. I think you can find it in the preferences too.

By far! Probably the most stunning residential building to ever grace New York City. It's the height, the design, the cladding; everything works together to create a true masterpiece. Beekman is going to be Manhattan's version of Aqua.

Also, thanks for the pics Jwalas. There is definitely work going on up top, keep us updated.

Some of those steel rebar cages are in wrong angle... LOL. I know they'll get straightened.

Update from Wired New York. lofter 1 asked a worker on site if they were continuing work up top. He said:

"We're going all the way"

I love the stainless steel cladding! Cladding is now about half way up and looking great. i can't wait to see it even higher. This one just keeps getting better and better.
