From the ground, the cladding is only visible from a tight angle. As they go up, they should clear the building on the left and become visible.

Is the bit of the tower touching it's neighbors going to be clad? Or is it just covered in concrete or what?

You will have to be more specific about what "bit" you are talking about. I guess the answer is probably the same either way though... It will have cladding.

I mean near the bottom of the tower where there is very little space between this building and it's two neighbors on either side.

I asked that question earlier in this thread. They said that the parts nearly touching neighboring buildings won't have cladding.

They are not touching, so it's a valid question. It wouldn't be impossible.

Not necessarily. Buildings are demolished all the time in NY. You never know if the building next to you is gone at some point in the future.

To answer the question about the gap between One57 and the next building..That small gap is there because, believe it or not, buildings move..If there's strong wind, building sway, possible earthquake, building moves, etc..Those are not moves like one ft..At least not at street level..But there are smaller moves..One57 is way taller than those buildings next door, so it has bigger moves..If they build it wall to wall, as time passes by, walls of One57 would hit other walls and they would crack..At first those cracks would be small but it would be bigger and bigger with time..And you know what that means..That's why is there small gap..

Usually those gaps get filled with some termo/sound proof material..Or it can just stay empty..And cladding that comes on the front side of building covers it so it's not visible..

I guess this building coud sway quite a bit. Easily inches. Nice to see the 1st pieces of cladding. It won't take long before we'll see it on the front side.
