Awesome video, but it makes me all the more upset that there won't be any outdoor observation deck. There's just no comparison between in- and outdoor.

From the images I have seen so far, the completion date is rest assured and the building will come online as promised!

Remember Conde Nast kitchen modifications to the curtain wall? I was told there's negotiation going between CN and Benson to replace some glass panels during fit-out.

Looking back over past few pages I wonder why anyone cares what part counts as overall height ? The roof, the communications ring or the spire/mast. This is a wonderful building in a wonderful city but height is of little significance today as so many buildings around the world are way higher these days. Just enjoy what is does for New York and what it replaces, if not life, the respect that this country can keep going whatever or whoever tries to tear it down.

Well said! I think it's just an extension of the age old arguement about how tall a building actually is. Many of us skyscraper geeks have strong opinions about what is cheating and what is not. I'm a "highest occupied floor" man myself. This building, because of what it replaces, what it represents, how it is designed, and the significance in the US of the number 1,776 makes it a lightning rod for that discussion.

Cheers

I think this is the double height floor directly above the observation level, which has a partial second floor. I think this would have been the restaurant level. The top mechanical floors are directly above.
