I think he means you can't see the difference anymore between the real thing and a rendering (especially one of yours).

Not necessarily directed to you, but a lot of people here on SSC forget that a 400m+ tower is still a freaking monster. Just because a few cities around the globe build so called 'megatalls', doesn't mean that other supertalls are small.
And it's funny how some forumers think New York is not building tall, i.e. needs some megatalls to compete with the others, whereas at the same time the tallest building in their own city is barely 150m tall lol.
Up to this day tourists are still amazed just how big the ESB is. That says it all.

It's strange that they didn't start repainting the side of 1LP that needs it the most: the east side.

I'm glad this thread hit the 1,000,000 mark (first one ever in the skyscraper section?). 4WTC totally deserves it. It's such a damn fine tower, just pure class.

When the lighting is right, and you've got a good angle, like in the photo above, I am tempted to say this is one of two or three best new tall buildings in NY. Enormous, boxy, simple, clean, elegant, sheer vertical walls, flawless glass. This turned out infinitely better than I imagined.

It doesn't matter how much they repaint 1LP, it will still be an ugly monstrosity

Can we see pictures of the base?

Are the elevators inside the building operating?

When will they take down the elevators outside the building and complete the cladding?

tnx

That is definitely an unsubstantiated rumor.
