They'll eventually take it down, unless the developer is willing to pay ~$1,700 an hour to use a single crane.

Right now this thing seems to be L shaped. Which part goes to the top - the part parrallel to 57th street or the part perpendicular to it?

The part parallel to 57th street is already VERY narrow. Whoever lives here better not have any fear of heights!

Awesome updates. I was up there earlier this week and this thing is deceptively gigantic, because it hides behind, and in between buildings so well, or I should say so unfortunately. The glass looks really cool as well, but won't know for sure until there's more of it on the building. Thanks again for the photos!

Yes last time I drove by it was about 18 floors high, and when you drive directly underneath it and stare up at it it's a beast.

Once this surpasses the top of the Essex House sign this will instantly get a lot more attention and be taken more seriously. It will simply be impossible to ignore.

BTW, look at how narrow those upper floors are. Is that narrow part going all the way to the top?

The 58th street wide will be narrow and go up this way to the top.
The 57th street side will be wider, with the setbacks.

But from a distance, these setbacks will add mass and make the tower appear bolder. When seen from the north. Just have a closer look at the renders, they explain more then enough.
