It looks like the edges of the floor slabs are concave. I have never seen that on other buildings before, but maybe I haven't been paying attention.

I haven't either, but it's pretty cool. I wonder why?

This building reminds me of the famous Frank Lloyd Wright home "Falling Water":

Which is one of the nicest houses of all time, imo. I actually think this building will turn out nicely, at least from up close.

I Think this is fantastic and full of character. I want to see more architects trying to bring design into a fresh era beyond generic glass

Good to see New York City getting new, unique and sophisticated skyscrapers being built. I really like this design, it is weird yes, but I think it will fit in perfectly in a city renowned for pushing boundaries. Terrific quality photographs of the updates of the construction work too... Definitely going to follow this thread! - G

The edges of the concrete floors are beautiful! Very nice detailed.
Building is not very New Yorkish in my opinion, but maybe just of that very New Yorkish

What they are talking about is their opinions on this building...

Also, does anyone know how far this has go to till it will start rising faster, once it is past the 'jenga' floors?

me thinks this building is going to look insanely cool!

What's important though will be for the residents.. Most units will have pretty nice layouts with amazing views.

This building is like 95% pre sold already at this stage of development. Insane!

Well you can't beat that one-of-a-kind look. This building is so distinctive. But I'd probably be too afraid to open the curtains and peek out at all that open sky.

Seems like it's finally picking up steam, but again we reached the most straight forward part of the building. We're only 10 floors up and this thing already looks stunning!
Great job on all the updates by the way TowerPower!

Very cool looking already... Now is this the kind of building that you would be nervous to walk near at street level.. Or is that just me?
