At the current pace shouldn't they top out by early summer? Does anyone know exactly how many floors remain?

The building has 51 floors atm. From kanye's pic I have calculated the current height and updated my diagram

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i43.************/v45t8j.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 362 meters or 1189 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 235 meters or 771 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 199 meters or 654 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.)

One57 is now taller than Two World Financial Center and Sony Tower. It's also taller than the Chanin building, the Silver Towers and 1 Wall Street (Bank of New York Building). It is now the 55th tallest building in New York City.

I also thought that the cladding was damaged, but if you look at the cladding on the right you see that that's the final cladding without any protection layer so yes indeed it's not the cladding itself you see on the left but a layer of protectoin materials on top of it.

Have you not heard of 432 park, Hudson towers, Brookfield towers, and tower Verre?

One 57 won't be alone by the end of the decade.

Wow, thank you for the diagram. Looks awesome!
To be honest: 432 Park Ave is not really imaginatively designed.
All other buildings are great. NY's skyline will be one day perfect.

Looks pretty good, I really like that they are planning it in glass. Manhattan needs more of that!
