The same as with the vertical top part of the Citygroup Center.

They´re quite similar, but it doesn´t matter (I like nina tower though).
I can´t wait to see the impact on midtown skyline

Hey guys I've found a webcam set put up that just so happens to catch One57 going up in clear-ish view. Here was yesterday afternoon

one57 looks almost deco-esque, very appropriate for nyc, very different from that building.

I'm not sure why One57 is one of my favorite buildings going up at the moment. Its location in NYC is probably one factor. It will dominate the skyline around that part of town. It looks quite different from anything around it, but it also gives a solid nod to the AD style of NY architecture. It is has a strange aesthetic to it. Seen from Central Park at an angle like in the picture above, it looks like a giant outstretched blue hand.

the design of this building is nice, but one of its greatest qualities i believe is that it is going to partially hide that horrendous duo of towers behind it. that black glass tower is alright but that slightly taller stone one next to it is hideous, and together they look like some conjoined abomination. dont get me wrong, i love development based on demand, but unfortunately it can lead to some nasty architecture such as what i previously mentioned.

I like it how the towers make a cluster and they are all different.
