Your welcome. I must say having now walked by this, it's going to be quite impressive. Just imagining it still has another 3-400 more feet to go... Wow.

Looks even cooler than the renders. It's funny seeing just two panels though.

It snowed in New York today.
Went out with my girlfriend in the park; then brunch at Bouchon Bakery in Time Warner Center, and then a nice walk down 57th Street.

cladding begins on 57th Street side

Here is my promissed new diagram

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i41.************/207avys.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = Edit: 1WTC is still 347 meters or 1138 feet tall, I made an error and I apologize for it. out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 235 meters or 771 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 196 meters or 642 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

So One57 is now the 62nd tallest building in New York City. It is taller than the Waldorf-Astoria, as well Central Park Place not very far away. It is taller than the W. R. Grace Building, and 888 7th Avenue which lies just across the street crossing from One57 (another neighbor bites the dust!). It is also taller than the General Electric Building and 1 New York Plaza.

By the way - awesome 57th st cladding :0

What amazes me is how close One57 and 4WTC are in final height.

Indeed, but no one would notice because they are so far away from each other. But if 4 WTC was 10 meters higher it would be much better.

Great update. Btw I hear that One57 hasn't made any progress the last three weeks or so, heightwise. Is there a connection between this one and 1WTC, i.e. no steel erection on both towers?
