I was a little disappointed to see it unlit when I went to the Rockefeller Center a few weeks ago. Does anyone know when it'll be lit?

What script is this? Kind of cool. Nice way to get good backlinks.

This tower is set amidst a sea of stunning pre-WWII masterpieces.

ok guys, i think we can move this tower to the highrise section. the final height has been confirmed - it's 193m to the crown. although i'm still not 100% sure (because it looks taller in many pics) we should accept the fact that this building is not a skyscraper. i'll make the request to change the title.

CTBUH says 192.58m to the tip.

see here for more detailed information about the floor plan:

Yes, it's done for a while now...

...according to wirednewyork.com, the Setai has opened as luxury hotel on November, 3rd 2010.
The full name is The Setai Fifth Avenue. The entire 4th floor contains the "Auriga spa", the 5th floor has a bar
with Fifth Avenue views and a central fireplace. The latter is about the only element allowed to smoke in the hotel.

Here an entrance pic from 21/11/2010 by Edward on wirednewyork.com:

Along with Beekman Place, the best constructed building at that moment in NY.
I'm glad that there are still guys, who like good old stone on the elevation...
