Ah, didn't know there were two of them. This is the one that just got surpassed by One57. This one is called by its full name, the General Electric building. The taller one is shortened to the GE building.

Mornings and midday is usually when work is ongoing. I saw most of the workers just milling around around noon (lunchtime).

YES! Similar to how there is the "MetLife building" on park, and the "metropolitan life insurance building" on madison square park. Both are the same company and basically same name, just one is abbreviated.

quoting from 770 11th Ave forum (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1012823&page=4)

this photo was posted 11 Jan 2012 (there has been little or no vertical enhancement of One57 since then) - the tower can now be seen from somewhere in New Jersey

Thanks, the claddings really taking off, it's definitely to the renderings though, they show the cladding being a lot more pale, not sure if I like the real cladding more or not, time will tell I guess

Absolutely agreed! From the renders, I thought it'd be gaudy, and awkward, now I see it, and I am very impressed!

I agree!!! I like a lot those colors. The building will really be the shining star of the area, no doubt about it. I can't wait to see it in person in a few months

I think the reason behind that is because there isn't any sunlight in the canyon, once it gets higher and more sunlight is able to reach it; it'll be much brighter.

Most of the panels still have the protective film on them, so the colors that you see are not the actual colors.
