I know this tower and others have way to go before completion but right now TV is by far the most impressive tower going up in the city. Let's see if Steinway can catch up to it.

At what height does the glass and cladding change from black to bronze and silver? Anybody knows?

I think maybe that has something to do with the sunset.

I thought so too originally, but it was confirmed by the architect. FYI, back from October 2016 on this same thread:

Nouvel actually states exactly that in that clip.

I wonder how much of this building will be part of MoMA and also if there will be any museum space on higher up floors. MoMA is a fantastic museum already, but imagine MoMA with those views!

This seems like more than a 1050 feet. I don't think the building will be this tall, like in the pix. It's cool if it was this large. What y'all think?

I think it seems about right. Maybe a slight exaggeration, but not too much. For reference this will be slightly taller than the tip of the Chrysler. Here it is compared to Steinway and CPT, in a combination image I found in another thread by user FunkySkunk2

It's terrible that this beautiful building has to have that horrible monstrosity "leeched" onto it on one side.

It looks like the two skyscrapers are nuzzling together, or the new one is snuggled up to the elder for protection. It's kinda cute, actually.
