Heh, exactly what I thought when I saw it under construction in 2002. Sure enough, it's designed by Cesar Pelli.

That building in NJ reminds me IFC in HK. However soon NYC will have it's own supertall, and the skyline of lower Manhattan again gona be iconic.

I presume that's the office floor glass not the podium levels. I thought Chinese manufactorers were building that glass. I would've thought they'd start with the podium before doing the office floors. I guess we'll soon find out.

Thanks for posting that, West! Hopefully we'll see a few corners installed by the end of the week.

Yes, office glass comes first..They have to work with concrete on the base before cladding..
