Looking good, someone said they were pouring a lot of concrete the other day on Wired New York. I believe they're working on a mechanical floor right now.

exactly i love how people before were saying it would ruin the skyline, and was an insult to block the view of woolworth, but those very same people love it now

Love the tower; never doubted it would be a tremendous addition to NY's skyline for a minute but... I am a little bugged by the flatness of the... North side? Is it?
Kinda like Aqua's silly mechanical floor on the top third of the tower in Chicago, the flat side here isn't as bad but it does 'break the pattern' so to speak.

Flatness is on the south side and you won't even notice it that much.

I'm really not a Gehry fan normally, but this tower is going to be pretty sweet!

to be fair stainless steel as a cladding material doesn't sound to pleasing on paper. but in practice if done right like it is here or the disney concert hall in LA, it looks good.

Nice picture! I think the view from Brooklyn Bridge is going to be my favorite when it's finished. Looks like they also started farming in the next floor.
