I like this alot more than the grey.
Most of the glass is still covered with a blue protective film. The glass itself is various shades of gray/silver. However the building will still appear to be blue much of the time because it will be reflecting blue sky.

Went to see this in person and I'm totally in love with this cladding. It sort of gives a glass building an art deco feel, which is brilliant.

I didnīt think that this one will have such a grand impact from the harbour.

Compared to 1WTC, I would say barely visible.

Before we know it, Torre Verre, 432 Park, and 225 W 57th will join the northern midtown supertall foursome! Also, great new towers will rise in this northern stretch at 220 CPS, 105 W 57th, and 425 Park.

I wonder if 432park will be visible from this angle/location too..because it is even further north than one57.

432 Park isn't further north than One 57. They're both on 57th St. It's further eat.

Including One57, all the new towers will totally change the whole skyline of midtown

I focused only on northern midtown. Adding southern into the equation, we'll have three supertalls on the Eastern platform of the Yards, 15 Penn, 41 E 42nd St., Girasole, and Extell's 1 HY. That's seven more supertalls with solid plans for Midtown.

Ah..didn't know that. Then, I guess it will be visible too, as it's about 400' taller...wow, just thinking about those numbers is kinda nuts ...taller roof than wtc1, 432park is surely going to change the skyline immensely..and at the rate theyre going, soon

57th Street is having a building boom. From east to west, it has the following projects: 250 E 57th, 432 Park, 16 W 57th, 105 W 57th, One 57, 225 W 57th, and the BIG Pyramid. Also, a site is being assembled at at 52 W 57th St.

I love the Pyramid. It will be around 160m tall.
