I had become bored with this building until the crown's cladding went up. Now it is interesting again and I find myself checking the thread and eagerly awaiting the construction elevator removal. The lighting will also be interesting to see!

Awesome shots! Imagine what it would look like once it's completed!

The last picture shows how "infinite", so to speak, could the New York skyline get. It's not like the cities who have buildings with similar heights and one supertall in the middle. The city did grow since the beginning in a way that could keep rising in the sky forever, in a very harmonic way and combining several architectural styles.

I must say I love the mix of Art Deco buildings, International Style skyscrapers, and the One57.

I hope that windowless and blacked out section right by the fins gets a piece of glass eventually. It's like a missing front tooth or enormous mole.

Also, I can't wait until the Helmsley hotel on CPS gets demolished or reclad. The post-war buildings on CPS are beginning to look worse and worse by comparison.

The straightforwardness of this building appeals to me.

I'm sorry to say some of them will get demolished to make more modern, taller buildings. But the good thing is, the Empire State building, the Chrysler Building, and other famous buildings won't get demolished since they're world renown. Didn't they demolish the Drake Hotel to make room for 432 Park Avenue? I mean, 432 Park is a nice building and all, but the Drake Hotel looked pretty nice too.

Another good thing is that our "modern" buildings will one day be as old as the Empire State Building is now, and tourists would come all over the world to see buildings like One57, while other cities would probably keep today's megatalls but demolish all the other buildings. And some suburban areas like Changsha would thrive from mountainous rural areas to megacities.

But New York is unique, and it always will be.

I don't think that's ever gonna happen. ESB is one of a kind and will always be.

Most of the taller ones are landmarked or have lots of residents which would prevent their demolition.

Totally agree.

300th page! (I know I just realized that.) But congrats, One57!

27% of new york buildings are landmarked. To say that only The ESB and Chrysler Building are protected is silly.

Cindy Crawford looks hot with a mole :-) And Anna Paquin looks great with a gap in her teeth :-)

But yeah its time to put that pane of glass in ...

I don't think he was saying that at all. I think he was just saying that those 2, are on a list of many other buildings, that won't get torn down because they are "world renown" (Or in technical terms, PROTECTED)

Hi,

Recently got a pair of Oculus VR goggles, and wanted to recreate some of the flats in One 57 to see what it was like to live there

Started with Sketchup:

Found the pictures used on the front page to create the panoramic view:







I imported everything into Unity3D (a gaming engine), and included everything to make it available for Oculus:

It is actually a really great experience. This was all done in a couple of hours, so it is still a lot I can do to close in on great quality rendering. But it is a start :-)

Also tried an old version I had tried to make of the penthouse:
(a look from the mezzanine)

(And another from the great hall)

A really cool experience. The depth perception and the feel of it all was quite amazing.

Hope to come back with more. Will see if I can license the box images so I can put this on the market. If we can't live there ourselves, this is pretty much as close as we can get

Update: Added a video aswell @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feG94E7hdGM

I want the 1080p version to come out soooo bad. Modeling with the panoramic view is a fantastic idea great job.

Added a video of my first Oculus try described in my previous post. Still need some lighting to make it perfect. Ready to be furnished at least

Check out the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feG94E7hdGM
