This tower literally isn't a box.

Have they reached a Mech/transfer level? the new steel on top is taller and has lots of extra bracing.

These buildings and the surrounding cluster will look so huge from the East. They should build up the area more to help it fit in

Oh yeah. I'm sorry. Whenever I post I do it very quickly so I don't ever remember to do it.

Don't know what to make of it yet, but it sure is no Eiffel Tower.

Hudson Yards’ Own Social Climbing Stairway
http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/09/15...ww.google.com/







Quote:
Big, bold and basket-shaped, the structure, “Vessel,” stands 15 stories, weighs 600 tons and is filled with 2,500 climbable steps. Long under wraps, it is the creation of Thomas Heatherwick, 46, an acclaimed and controversial British designer, and will rise in the mammoth Far West Side development Hudson Yards, anchoring a five-acre plaza and garden that will not open until 2018. Some may see a jungle gym, others a honeycomb.

But Stephen M. Ross, the billionaire founder and chairman of Related Companies, which is developing Hudson Yards with Oxford Properties Group, has his own nickname for “Vessel”: “the social climber.” And the steep price tag Mr. Ross’s privately held company is paying for Mr. Heatherwick’s installation? More than $150 million.

The back story of the stair-filled “Vessel” involves two men who are in step in more ways than one: a designer known for dreaming big, and a deep-pocketed developer who will spend whatever it takes to make a statement.

Currently under construction in Monfalcone, Italy, the bronzed-steel and concrete pieces that make up “Vessel” are not to be assembled on site until next year, but on Wednesday, Related Companies is rolling out the design with a splashy Hudson Yards event.
...
Mr. Heatherwick said “Vessel” was partly inspired by Indian stepwells, but he also referred to it as a climbing frame — what Americans would call a jungle gym — as well as “a Busby Berkeley musical with a lot of steps.”
...
The design reflects Mr. Heatherwick’s belief that the city’s natives are always looking for their next workout. “New Yorkers have a fitness thing,” he said. (It will test many city folk who can barely climb into their Ubers, but there will be an elevator for anyone unable to climb to the top.)

I like the sculpture, I was expecting both a fountain and a sculpture, not sure why. When they said it was going to be as amazing as the Eiffel tower, they somehow exaggerated with the statement so I was expecting something even more extravagant, but I guess it's not bad after all.
