I'm going to be "that guy" and have to say that the darker panels look nicer. Having a static pattern all the way to the top is a bit boring in my opinion. I think the darker panels do a nice job capping off the pattern as a crown.

What were you expecting, super columns to hold up the roof? It's a concrete building, the metal you see is only holding up glass.

Beautiful, this building is getting seriously close to completion (at least on the outside)

Anyone know if the light on the front with going to be white or blue?

cheap concrete behind hideous glazing, not a great "construction", compare to Seagram or Hearst buildings.

Finally the entire building, apart from the elevator gap, is cladded!

Or is that setback halfway up the tower still uncovered?

I'm pretty sure this 1,004 ft tall luxury residential skyscraper in the middle of NYC is not built with "cheap concrete."
