This whole area will be developed into luxury residential projects in prep for the Hudson Yards mega-project. Nice to see all these shiny blue glass towers poking out of the skyline now. The one thing NYC needs is a large luxurious plaza or square that the new Hudson Yards plan is proposing.

A fine pair of elegant and understated towers! The photos were beautiful. Please, let's have an up-date!

It's a rental tower on 11th Avenue in the 30's that will be about 30 stories tall.

They look a lot taller because of the location and their slenderness.

Well, they are topped out for a while now and I think that soon they will be externally fully completed... Nice to see that. Anyone got info about the status of interior works?

They're still fairly tall in their own right. I believe that they're about the height of Swiss Re in London.
