This is one of the few design in New York I love! Just because it is not that classic, boxy design, like the other proposals or supertalls(432 PA, Nordstrom Tower, etc.).
This design will be outstanding and iconic in the skyline! Not just another box addition.

Sometimes a tower doesn't need hight to look iconic! (320m is tall, but in comparison to 432 PA or Nordstrom Tower? You know...)

They are piling now. They dug down a few feet beforehand for unknown reasons.

I don't think I've been more excited to see a tower go up, and to think that Steinway will rise the same time as this makes it even more special.
I think some ppl on this site, me included will go nuts when both towers will be above ground and we start to get a glimpse of that amazing cladding.

At last, at bloody last! Been waiting so long!
Praise be to the god of architecture & a curse on all those change-hating nimbys and selfish nitwits who tried to bring this great tower down to their own mediocre level!

Corrected. Btw I already made the request for moving the thread. Tower Verre is definitely U/C (Piling work ongoing and caissons placed).

Tower Verre is easily atop my list of the most interesting new skyscraper designs in the USA.



181 Fremont in San Francisco is a close second.

Good tower. Think it could have used a more prominent location. If it switched places with One57, that'd be cool. Can we arrange that?

Sure, let's just grab a realllly reallly big and strong forklift and carry One57 on over.

Fun fact: with Verre U/C, One57 - a supertall(!) - has officially dropped out of the top 10 tallest buildings in NYC (completed and U/C).

This and the Steinway are the future. It's going to be a fun year watching these 2 towers rise.
