The first setback looks to have larger windows, but they don't interfere with the cladding too much. I think everything else is pretty much the same.

which is a shame, because it is a great angle, especially the 1st one.

the higher this thing grows the more i realize how slender and awesome it will be once all the way up. At their current speed, they should top out in 23 - 26 weeks meaning before the new year!

This has really shot up in the past year. This picture is from 2008; you can't even see anything except for a floor (at the base of the Woolworth Building).

IMO...This design doesn't fit the other buildings surrounding it..

But I still like its architecture.....

Great pictures guys! I personally think this type of cladding is setting a high standard for many new buildings in and out of NY. With this going up at such a pace it's gonna be a lovely new icon for the city, honestly can't wait till its topped out.

Took these shots today. I absolutely love the facade of this tower. Kudos to Gehry for designing this wicked tower. Too bad the weather was overcast when I went to check it out.

Looking good as always! The cladding does look amazing, can't wait until it gets higher. It's quite elaborate, we haven't seen anything like this before on a high-rise. Thank you for the update!

i wonder if the underlating surface will be particularly obvious from a bit of distance, but close up it's rather beautiful.
