No trace of winter at all (just like over here). Good for construction though.

We were just talking about the same thing at work, we're in the middle of January and have not had any snow yet and the temperatures are for the most part mild in comparison to other years

Well except for that snow in October, but the temp has been hanging out just enough above freezing which is nice.

Well, this tower would not have risen nearly as fast if there was constant snow and frost.

Bad for skiing and ice skating... Good for building skyscrapers.

GIMME SHELTER

$110M for ‘One’ penthouse

Less than five months after we broke the news that the One57 condo building (right) was asking $98.5 million for preconstruction penthouses comes word that foreign buyers are making huge purchases at the development near Carnegie Hall. And those two units that were $98.5 million are now listed for $110 million and $105 million.

We hear that a Chinese buyer has agreed to buy four units for more than $20 million each. In addition, an unnamed Russian oil tycoon has signed a contract to buy a unit for $28.8 million. Broker Victoria Logvinsky of Prudential Douglas Elliman, who worked on the $28.8 million deal, declined to comment. Developer Gary Barnett of Extell also had no comment.
One57 is slated to be the city’s largest residential tower at 90 floors.

2nd pic is excellent... shows that atm One57 could be around the height of 888 7th Ave (191m) and maybe taller than Hearst Tower (182m) hiding to the left.

Remarkable new s-shaped highrise in foreground, by the way.

You're welcome. This tower, which will be around 160m, will rise nearby starting this spring.

It's by Durst, who is a huge developer. He did BofA, for example.
