This is THE city of skyscrapers in all the world.
How is it to live in such an interesting city in terms of new constructions?

Wealthy investors are wiring millions of dollars to New York to snatch up a piece of 157 West 57th Street


Quote:
Buyers have appeared from all over the globe, including South America, and there have been multiple sales to people from China, Mr. Barnett said. He declined to comment on rumors reported on some real estate blogs that one Chinese buyer had bought four $20 million apartments. But he did confirm that there have been multiple sales to the same buyers.

Fact sheets for the building have been translated into Russian and Mandarin. Spanish, Portuguese and Italian translations are in the works.

Americans, including New Yorkers, are buying as well, though they are a little late to the party. “Some want to buy, and we don’t have the exact product they want anymore,” Mr. Barnett said.

The duplex penthouse of 10,923 square feet, currently listed at $115 million, is still available. If the six-bedroom home closes at anywhere near that price, it will be the most expensive apartment ever sold in New York, eclipsing the recent $88 million sale of a penthouse at 15 Central Park West by Sanford I. Weill, the former Citigroup chairman. Ekaterina Rybolovleva, the 22-year-old daughter of a Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev, bought that gem. She apparently will use it as her Manhattan crash pad while attending college. (Her security detail reportedly will live in a smaller, $8 million apartment in the building.)

On Wednesday, the developers of One57 and Christian de Portzamparc, the French “starchitect” on the project, as the builders called him, explained their vision for the 1,004-foot-tall building at a mimosa-and-bellini-fueled event. Mr. Portzamparc said he tried to design the building’s exterior “like a staircase of curved roofs.”

Some pics I took today focusing on the cladding. Sorry for the poor quality, just an Iphone:

Ok, note in the above picture the upper right most "white" curved cladding. Note the strange printing it has on it. Also, I don't think it comes through clearly in the pictures, you really have to be there, but a number of the curved pieces seem to just be curved material without much of anything behind them. In other words, they aren't the curtain wall, they are simply decorative material outside the curtain wall. Tried to get close ups to show this but I don't think it comes through in the pictures:

can some one send me the links for the projects down on 56th and Broadway and 8th Ave. Have pictures that I want to post but don't know exactly where the threads are.

My comment was in terms of architecture and new high rise buildings that you see every day being built in New York City.
So many influences and new technology, that is not as common as you may think, in most cities around the world. And for me that’s very interesting.

I honestly don't think he was trying to make fun of you.......... I think he was trying to give you his own type of anaolgy. Maybe in terms of human scale..........like walking in the Redwood forest.
Since I have never lived in NY I can't really say but I am imagining walking down your cities street of tallest buildings and you just keep that experience no matter how many blocks you walk in any direction

Thanks, unfortunately they don't quite capture one thing I had hoped to show.

The curved white cladding with the pattern on it has open space behind it. Behind that is more white cladding which is the true curtain wall. You can't really see that they don't touch because they are both white so the stuff that bends out blends into the part behind it that is basically flat. I would have had to get an even sharper angle but I couldn't.

Anyways, for those of us who remember back to last summer when this thing seemed to be making no progress it is great to see it flying now.

Question:

Is there a zoning law regarding the height at which manual opening windows are not allowed in NYC? Personally, would not ever want to live in a building where I could not open the window. I suppose there is a safety concern as far as something falling out of the window and hitting someone. Is the zoning law the same for residential and commercial?

Thanks,
Bugs

Maybe it's just a protection film.
