Reminds me of a combination between the BK opening ceremony and ESB's. I'd definitely go if I could. Thanks for the information.

I'm working on something big for you guys. An HD photo-realistic rendering of the top floors, roof, AC towers, chutes, catwalks, rings, spire, guys, and as much else as I can get modeled in one or two days.

That looks like new area for deliveries. They will dismantle dock on other side because they need to start putting podium glass up.

I believe that will also be where tenants will get their deliveries until the temp. PATH station comes down and they connect the VSC to Tower 1.

Good to hear! I'll expect the mast to be lit in three different colors, Red, White and Blue.

Cladding is almost done.

There's a glass piece missing on the tip of both triangles. Wonder what's the issue.

Anyways, louver wall installation is beginning on one of the two highrise plenums, just below the obs deck levels.

Correct, they are beginning to build the temporary loading dock/parking for Conde Nast fit out. East entrance will not be open until last phase of VSC is complete, which won't happen as long as the NTA is there.

VSC=Vehicle Security Center
NTA=North Temporary Access

Sorry, but what do you mean by "glass tip"? I was under the impression that that's how it would look.

Ah, I see. I was busy searching the other (top) sides of the building, forgot all about the base tips. Thanks.

I wonder who they'll give the babies to.

Otie, how is the interior work coming along right now?

Guys, I'm sorry to break the news, I will not be able to render a photo-realistic movie of the entire top of the tower, I might be able to render the rings alone, and if I leave the computer working a few days, the spire, but it will be a challenge. Unless I have a breakthrough, I'll make it up by rendering the base with the LED back-lighting on the base. That still render itself won't be easy and may take all day to set up and render. Now I'm getting an error message on my still render as I speak. I'll look into it.
Hopefully I'm just trying to export too large an image.

Bathroom fitout is complete through floor 50 or so. Elevator banks A,B,C and D are running and being used for lifting materials/crews.
