If there ever there was a building I did not - initially -care for, but it started to "grow" on me, it was this one!

What I like most about it are the setbacks and the sloping roof. I find flat roofs usually boring. This building seems to pay homage to NYC's Art Deco architecture.

Something I think would be funny: what if the first "E" and "S' fell of the huge sign on the apartment building just in front of One57 facing Central Park - the Essex House?

^I saw a pic a few years ago where the first two letters of the sign malfunctioned and went out!

It's surprising to think that while right now this tower is dominating Central Park, in a few years this will be just a "sister" tower to the Steinway Tower, and it'll be dwarfed by the two other skyscrapers 432 Park Avenue and the Nordstrom Tower. And there are even more proposals in Midtown. Only the renderings showing all of the 4 buildings are remotely accurate to their impact on the skyline.

Renderings with only one or two towers don't give us a clue on which tower will be the most dominant. But to be fair, they are probably "outdated" and some of them are only meant to show the shape or facade of the tower itself.

^ That is one beautiful pic, shows the best side of the tower. Unfortunately, we will only see the 'boring' side from Central Park. But at least the crown will be illuminated at night.

i just watch Discovery Channel about One57, and clearly this facade, downgrades my opinion. this facade not representing $ 19 million/ each unit. in Jakarta, this facade only used by mid class mixed-use building such as Kota Kasablanka (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=319177). this part of One57 is carelessly for it's price

Here's an epic zoom from the latest video by QUEENSNYMAN (of SSP fame), taken from the ESB observation deck.

Picture taken from the airplane on the SFO-JFK flight, one week ago (I will post the whole trip to the US in a few weeks).

Do you recognize the One57?
