Woah, the water is super reflective, and so clear, never seen anything like it my whole life

Or maybe, it is just photoshop

Still a great shot though.

Okay guys, we all know its photo shopped, as the last 15 posts have said the same exact thing

Can't you guys just enjoy it and not feel the need to come along and dissect it to pieces. I swear, I feel like some people here just sit by their computers all day long waiting for someone to post a photo shopped picture or comment you don't agree with so you can pounce on them and rip it apart

It's a great picture no matter how you slice it so please just sit back, have a Beer, and enjoy it when someone contributes.

I know, right?

It's like those guys who complain on every little detail not being to their liking when they are getting a 3 billion dollar skyscraper built to higher standards than ever before.

I just can't believe otie said the rest of the spire above the makeshift platform will be temp stairs,,roughly 40 stories of makeshift stairs,, I wouldn't want to be up there with high winds either,(and I imagine no one will) but if that crane can snap on 157, imagine what a heavy storm (snow or wind) what it would do to those stairs.. Not for the faint of heart that's 4 sure.

How high is it now?

This skyscraper will show the world what the best class skyscraper is... while others just claim without evidence, except burj khalifa.

Well during Hurricane Sandy I read that the winds gusted well over 120 mph at the top of the building.....thats category 3 strength! The tower was relatively unscathed besides the blue netting being shredded so I'm sure the way they construct things up there must be absolutely weather resistant

Yeah, if this tower can't take these winds, what tower can?

Didn't noticed that either. But it was fake anyway because the reflections is wrong too.

Nice loving how quick the cladding is progressing now, seems like all the of the ventilation panels will be up within a week or 2 worst case.

Wish we could get some better shots of the base cladding, the one Otie posted was great...the KPI cam is just not cutting it as the details are lacking. Looks like they have a good amount started on that corner.
