WOW! I go to this thread everyday, and this thing must be growing 2 floors a week! It is starting to make quite an impact, and is an excellent way to usher in a new era of taller towers in midtown! I think this deserves some smilies

I love how Metropolitan Tower has razor-thin appearance from the sides.

It should actually be starting the final curves!!

And I wonder how they're going to deal with that massive gap in the glass?

...massive windows?

This has got to be the fastest supertall built in the city in awhile. Start to finish so fast.

Yeah, this is definitely the fastest a supertall has risen in this country in 80 years.

Exactly one year ago this thing was still hidden behind the CPS towers.
