Wow, I don't look at this thread for a short while and suddenly it's clearly visible from Central Park, it's going fast.

If this tower was some meters ( 30 - 40 ) on the right to fill the hole, it would be absolutely perfect. Instead in this place it will cover other great towers !!!

Is there something to do with the bedrock that all three towers are clustered next to each other?

That "hole" is a street.

I think it's more to do with the zoning... No landmarked buildings or other restrictions on those few blocks in midtown...

Real estate availability and developer choices I guess. Manhattan is mostly bedrock.

I hope they'll start installing cladding on the street side soon. It would be much more visible.

I have trouble determining the current number of floors from Dino's second pic. To me it seems as if they would be still at floor 47 but they've hit floor 47 like two weeks ago so I'm kinda puzzled. Are they really still at floor 47? Can somebody confirm or deny it?

A quick count in the pic above gives a number in the mid 40ies, so it is posible.

I think I'm counting 48, but it's hard to tell with the plate coverings on the top

Only in NYC is this just another building to the regular person. However, this should change quickly.
