Indeed! I've been waiting for this new NY panorama for ages.
After the last setback, the impact of One57 has improved so much from every viewpoint.

Is it at level 69 and around 275m? If so, this tower will overtake Citygroup Center and become tallest on upper midtown.

Just imagine the views from Central Park of both One57 and 432 Park Avenue -- in addition to the beautiful Hearst Tower (recently built only a few years ago).

It would be great to put glass elevators on that side of the building

I really think it would be a bonus to the spectacular building, and certainly would make it one of the most photographed buildings in the world, no doubt. As currently occurs with the impressive Burj Dubai or the award winning Aqua Chicago.

Currently, there are already every day thousands of people taking photos from Central Park behind them the growing building, imagine when it is finalized¡¡¡ even more...

And if it also had on that side of the building non-stop panoramic elevators for the exclusive use of the owners of top apartments of the upper floors and
exclusive residents of the higher floors, would be a landmark in the city and in the world.

Anyway, glass elevators or not, I believe, that this tower is already the most talked about and photographed building around New York

In Barcelona there is a building with panoramic lifts and looks great.
In the One57 the effect would be so spectacular both during the day and night that Central Park would have tourists taking pictures at all hours due to its huge and attractive shape

Imagine being stuck in a One57 panoramic elevator, alone. Somewhere at the 60th floors. Damn.
