International Gem tower which is almost done. I think there is a thread for it somewhere...

I wish I had a real camera to take better pictures but hopefully these show that real work is still taking place on One57.

I would've guessed the crown was going to be some steel structure at the top. Obviously not. Very close to actually being fully topped out. Thanks for the pics!

It's tilted in those images, lol. It has usurped the landscape of that area by towering above every other building within the vicinity.

Nice building though.

Took some shots of this today. The wind screen seems irrelevant now. But one curious thing you can see from the pictures is how irregularly the glass is going up. Some parts are 20 floors ahead of other parts:

Note all the little windows they've opened up.

I absolutely love the facade. The blue is stunning! I can't complain about anything on this building.

First everybody said there was a protective foil on the facade, and in the end it would be taken off and the whole cladding would be grey like on the lower right part of the building. Is this still happening? Or will the blue be the final colour?

I like this alot more than the grey.

when the protective film is removed it will look like the glass in the center and on the right side in this photo. It looks like only part of the base is covered. The bluer glass that doesn't reflect or shine is covered. The covering on the left stops just before the second setback

I really love the blue color looks like water but I suppose that wouldn't look as good as the reflective facade
