Pretty soon I'm betting. I hope they are using the highest quality materials they can get. If the glass looks something like this i will be very happy.

HK999 it's not offtopic, just useful information

Nice to watch as the building grows and grows. I'm waiting for a finished building. It will be very nice. The entire complex will be amazing. New Yorkers will be proud!

Please post more pics at night

I hate the top of this thing. That hypodermic needle thing is aweful. How bout stopping at the roof and calling it done? Great looking building right up to the roof, terrible above that.

So what? It looks horrible. Too many of these things are over-thought. It's like the top 5th of the Burj. Serves no purpose other than to show whose balls are bigger and to give the light bulb changer a better view.
