I reckon it are the construction elevators, and yeah, they'll be removed when this building is complete. Lovely building btw

You've never seen "temporary construction elevators" on the side of a high rise under construction? to bring workers up and down???????

At 256m (840ft) to top of its curtain walls, this one hardly rates as a super tall these days, surely? It's a so-so looking building too, imo - Piano has done much better - but it's a good addition to that area of the West Side.

Well, this spire pretty much looks like just an antenna... or even just a pole. I agree with Jhun about the top of this building. Definitely not one of my favorites.

I think this building is evil. NY Times had the government forcibly remove the previous tenants just to build their butt ugly skyscraper. The bastards don't deserve a skyscraper if they use imminent domain to get the land for it.
