I see what you mean, but the middle part of the tower is basically just a normally tower with offset balconies, soon we shall start to see the crazy bit!

It's going to look just like the renders, the problem is we're only at 500 feet and the building gets more "adventurous" as it gets higher. the lack of cladding and the netting everywhere are also throwing off perspective.

Those top 11 floors are "adventurous" also with very high ceilings, that really make up a lot of the building height

Which is why this is T/O 3/15 instead of 1/15 (30 Park Place).

It's just you. Come to NY and see it in person. It's amazing, and the best part -- the wild top -- hadn't even started.

More like the top of the photo. It has 300+ feet to go. 33 Thomas is only 550 feet tall, for comparison to 56 Leonard's 821 feet.

I hope so. I'd be happy to be wrong about that.

I really don't remember those white frames from the renderings. I have mixed feelings about them. On one hand, they could really emphasize the verticality of the tower and provide some cohesion to an otherwise chaotic design. On the other, they kind of dull the sharpness of the glass on concrete combo.

This is going to be a cool corner once the WTC is completed, with 2 WTC and 1 WTC framing 56 Leonard.
