very clever to make the sides of the concrete floors curved in a bit. Looks better than plain concrete.

Not only are there pits in the concrete, but there are ripples in it too. The concrete contractor also built in the wrong place if I recall correctly. What a shame for such a nice design.

I don't want to become the guy who always says this but what's the current height? I would like a point of reference to compare with the renderings.

Had a chance to get up close and personal today. Picture don't do it justice! This building is going to be so badass.

I hope that building covered in blue net is renovated, not demolished?

Trinity Place, looking north: the canyon where the World Trade Center, 30 Park Place and 56 Leonard are under construction at the same time
