If you ask me, i'd say the first 3 or 4 floors look like the mechanical floors, actual residential units start on the floor that the crane's tower support arm is on. (I'll call it the 6th floor)

Definitely not. These apartments probably sell for at least $2,000 per square foot. Therefore, $2m buys a 1,000 s.f. apartment which is either a very small two bedroom or a large (by NY standards) one bedroom.

Some details

There are no more than two apartments on a floor. Other than the $35M triplex on top, floors come in one of four flavors:

1. Split down the middle: 2 2 bedroom apartments. One (east facing) slightly larger than the other.

2. Three and one: A three bedroom and a less than 1000 sf One Bedroom.

3. Full floor (with no outdoor space).

4. Full floor (with terraces).

Everything has been sold except for the triplex and some one bedrooms.

Average prices are hovering around 2,500/sf. A few units are being re-offered (someone who signed the contract is being allowed to assign the property to a new buyer).

The building will have a restaurant on the first floor. It will also have private areas on the next couple of floors -- including a gym, a club, and a lap pool.

I really like this design. But I think it looks very similar to another apartament tower - BBB Tower in Gdansk(Poland) - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=488640
isn't it?

That's crazy, it's very thin. I love the design though, this should be cool to see rise.

This will go up very fast. That seemingly perpetual low-rise gap between downtown and midtown is seeing some major changes.

indeed good progress and nice new yorkish kind of photo!

Question though: it looks like the facade will be one colour instead of the two tones of colour it had on the render? Although the side looks just a little bit more purple/darker like then the front of the facade?
