Nothing about that building makes it a pyramid.

It is a truncated pyramid with some changes.

No lol. It's a cube with rectangular wings that flare out at the bottom.

Any pics of platform/retail building steel progress? Trying to get this back on topic, as some people seem to think this thread belongs to Manhattan West...

Geometry is my business. I would call that building an augmented square frustum. Or generically, counting the maximum number of flat sides possible, a decahedron.
Anyway, good to see it being reclad!

This one will be steel construction rather than concrete like 10 HY correct? Hoping for a much faster build.

In this case, the speed is more related to other factors other than the construction material.

In the case of 10HY tower, large floor plates, leaning columns and some special features at the base (bridging over the High Line), made it more complicated to build and then the relatively low speed. Meanwhile, in 30 Park Place, a building equally with a structure of concrete, but with smaller plates and a simpler general construction, its 70 stories and 937 feet, were topped out in just 14 months (in addition, it is also possible that the structural contractors were more efficient there)

This building would have similar challenges as 10HY, a complicated structure at the base, bridging over active rails, large floor plates, leaning facades, making it floor different than the other, etc. So, I don't expect much faster speed in this one.
