there waiting for the weather to improve. the wind is really strong up there, the 2 weeks is the expected time line for construction, not when construction to start or finish.

I've probably asked this before but what is that building in the middle of the picture that is still U/C?

Also what is going on with the building on the left and the star pattern of lights? Was it a special occasion?

Amazing building. Some of the shots look like renders.

I don't know if it sold yet, but the building's penthouse condo is on the 89th floor. It's 14,260 sq. ft. with 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, per the website.
