One more penthouse floor, and then the crown.

Also, big photo tour on curbed:

Developer Larry Silverstein Ceremonially Tops Off New Downtown Manhattan Luxury Apartment High Rise

http://www.google.com/hostednews/get...ocId=461900470

Quote:
NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 21: The Empire State building and the skyline of Manhattan is viewed from one of the top floors of the newly built Four Seasons private residences at 30 Park Place on January 21, 2015 in New York City. The building, which was built by Silverstein Properties, Inc. and designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, will be the tallest residential tower in downtown Manhattan when complete. An event to celebrate the final pour of structural concrete on the 82nd floor of the 926-foot tall building brought dozens of employees from both firms along with construction workers and members of the real estate community.

That's interesting to be able to see the cores and empty offices straight through the WTC buildings before they become occupied.

Including the crown, there are the equivalent of 10 floors above the thick floor slab in that photo. Seven are visible so as hateman said, one more floor and then the two-story crown.

Inside Downtown's Tallest Residential Tower, 30 Park Place



Quote:
Larry Silverstein's limestone pillar 30 Park Place topped out today at 926 feet, officially making it the tallest residential tower Downtown. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed building won't be complete until mid-2016, but the 157 condos, which sit stop a 185-room Four Seasons, are already 60 percent sold, including three of the 11 penthouses. The tower's location makes it stand out from many other super luxury buildings; many units look north, offering views of Manhattan and the Empire State Building that Midtown's new towers do not, a feature that sales director Loretta Shanahan-Bradbury said drew early buyers.

The crown on the Woolworth Building ...just the ornate detail on the whole building, seems to get better with age

Yea that's a great Art Deco tower. One of my fav too. That's the GE Building.

I can't believe how fast 30 Park has topped off. Way ahead of 56 Leonard.

Exactly one year ago it was at 3 floors.

I wonder if one day they will ever restore the Woolworth's original turrets and tear down those ugly Disney Pomo things that replaced them.

Hah! I had never noticed them until these close-up photos, but you're right: the new ones are awful compared with the originals. Maybe the residents of the 30 Park Place penthouse will pay for them to be restored after looking at them out their window every day.

Very True SMCYB they don't make 'em like that, they really were building castles in the sky back then!

I agree. It makes 30Park Place look bleak.

Unless they shortened this project by 20 m. or so, it is not topped out architecturally.

I agree. It seems barely above Woolworth and not even as tall as Spruce street even though it's supposed to be taller.

I guess we'll see.
