The River Place II Towers are named Silver Towers I and II by Emporis. They have 58 floors and stand at a height of 200 metres. I'm also beginning to think that the two towers are skinnier than the existing River Place building.

You sure about that? Looks like Time Warner Center to me. River Place Twin Towers should be in front of NY Times Tower from this angle...

It's been a while since I drove into the city (cost of gas), but I do recall watching these towers rise (from a distance).

I never bothered to snap any photos of them, but now I am glad to see how substantial they will be to the NY skyline!
