Very interesting. In that model it certainly looks blueish.

I went by it this afternoon and it is clear that some of the cladding that appears blue has protective coating on it - it can clearly be seen as wrinkled and marked up.

But there is other blueish cladding that doesn't obviously have protective film. So maybe...

Finally, of the curved pieces on the western part of the 57th street face some are blue and some are white. I would think at least one of those has to be an actual color. Why have some protective coating be blue and some white.

BTW, they are FLYING with the cladding. The eastern side of 57 with the dark cladding has had a few more floors put up with even some cladding with vents.

I guess, since this side of cladding is gray and mirror-ish, once it reaches higher floors it will reflect sky which will make it blue..The same thing was with 1WTC..1stt cladding pieces were gray and mirror-ish..Look at it now..My guess..

Here are two pics I took with my Iphone around 4:30 pm today:

Look carefully and you can see the vents in the second picture.

Also, note not all the "blue" cladding looks the same. Also, some of the curved cladding is blue and some white. So maybe this is more than a simple black and silver scheme.

PS, didn't take pics but the buildings on Broadway and 8th Avenue are really shooting up and the International Gem tower, which I went by for the first time, is really big (ugly white cladding though).

You wouldn't never know the US had economic problems from the amount of construction in NYC

Strong sales bode well for 432 Park, 225 W 57th and Tower Verre.

One57 over 30 percent sold, Extell’s Barnett says

Developer, architect and designer talk shop at showroom event
February 01, 2012 02:30PM
By Leigh Kamping-Carder



"About 30 percent of the apartments at One57 are under contract, according to Gary Barnett, founder of Extell Development Company, the developer behind the 95-unit luxury condominium tower...

In fact, prices already have gone up, not only for the 10,923-square-foot top-
floor penthouse asking $110 million, since sales officially kicked off in December. Some unit lines were “undervalued,” explained Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group’s Daniel Tubb, One57′s director of sales. For example, he said, a 2,009-square-foot two-bedroom priced at $6.65 million in October is now priced at $7 million, about 5.3 percent more expensive."

That glass is gonna SHINE when it gets closer to the sky. It's bright as hell now, and all it has to reflect to a street-level viewer is, well, the street.

Give it time folks. This is some serious shit right here.

Over $10,000 per square foot? Got to be some of the highest residential property values anywhere, across all world cities. Granted it will have a lovely view of the park, you know your penthouse is expensive when even lottery winners can't buy it.

Actually, about half the floors in this building will have mediocre views. To the north the bottom 500 ft are blocked by the hotel on CP South and up until about the 900 foot level views south are significantly blocked by Carnegie Hall tower and city spire. In fact, for views they built this in the unluckiest of spots.
