Zuck will probably end up buying the whole tower anyways. He's just starting at the top and working his way down. He's been known in the last few years for paying up to 10 times what a property is actually worth. I just wish I had something that he wanted really bad This is the kind of kid, someone needs to convince, to build the new WTB. After all, it would be pocket change for him.

As long as the buildings are making nice profits, I'm satisfied.

If you only knew the amount of money he has spent on real estate in the last few years, your jaw would probably fall through the floor. He owns a lot more of New York then you think.

Wow! If it wasn't for the crane, I'd swear that's a render.

Is the crane finally coming down? It looks like a section or two have now been removed.

Yeah it is. When you look at the pictures from last week, when the crane got stuck, you can clearly see it has lost a few sections

Quite a few actually. It was at least 10 floors higher first.

Wow, that last picture is fantastic! What a wonderful addition the NYC! Imagine what it will look like in a few more years from the same view...

Yes that is awesome. It will even be better with all the supertalls of the 57th street in the future.

Every time I see One57, it is quickly becoming one of my favorite towers.
