Wow thank you for the spectacular shots.

So, is the tower only continueing where we see the re-bar going up and stoping at the other part? According to the renders I've seen that should be happening soon. Maybe they are finally at that level?

I ask for a moment of silence for the views lost by those who own condos in The Metropolitan Tower and Carnegie Hall Tower. These views only lasted roughly 25 years a piece, but they were amazing in those 25 years. You will be missed, especially when the condos are audited.

I think so, actually if you look in my close up shot, it almost looks as if the curve is already beginning to happen.

Really like the photo showing the cluster of the four towers. All very individual. Soon One57 will tower over them

Carnegie Hall Tower is an office building, not a residence. It does not contain any condos.

Still a bummer for the companies located there, but it's not like anyone's living room view is disappearing. Maybe the commercial tenants will see their rents go down...

No way! I'd always just assumed it was a condo building. Anyway, it still sucks, especially since a mark of dominance in the world of offices is having a room with a great view. Still a great view, but no central park anymore. It's odd that an office building is so close to so many residences and so far north though!

Yeah, I know. But it does give an idea how the upper setback will look out.

Lol @ "will put us on hold..."
My appreciation for One57 grows every day- I just love the shape! The cladding of course is awesome too. It truely will be a fine addition.

The area is a mix of residential and commercial buildings. Many prominent buildings in the immediate neighborhood are mixed use (offices and residences), including City Spire, Metropolitan Tower, the Time Warner Center, the Sheffield, and the Park Imperial. There are also some major office-only buildings such as the Hearst Tower and 888 7th Ave. So I'm not sure why it's "odd" to have an office building here...

I agree with you that the desirability of high-floor offices in Carnegie Hall Tower has gone way down. They will go from having open Central Park views to views of a glass wall. A very nice glass wall, but a wall nonetheless.
