As much as I love skyscrapers, that would be horrible

Agreed. Nature is far more important than skyscrapers.

I don't that is such a good idea... I've never been to New York before, but from what i've seen, it looks great how there are such huge sections of skyscrapers, with breaks inbetween of small parks with trees, it adds a sense of nature and a little break from it all, and i'd love to go to say central park, look up through the tree canopy to see huge towers soaring into the sky

I'd just say we're at the highest point where the roof is flat. It's about to start angling North.

Scroll across to One 57 and lop off anything above 275 meters. That is your current height. http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?cityID=8.

I have updated my diagram with the latest progress. From now on the link to my diagram together with the numbers will be in my signature so that it is easier to find it and one doesn't have to scroll through the forum

Did you take a stroll through Manhattan today? Because I'm seeing some phenomenal photos of yours throughout SSC.

LAF2, I'm usually in the city 2-3 times a week but this time I took my camera since I was meeting some old college buddies.

Hahahaha I wish I had that luxury. I have 4 years of high school and then college before I can move there.

The cladding looks like it is progressing very well on the North side.
