252 East 57th Street Now Topped Off in New York City

Quote:
Yet another sky-scraping condominium development has topped off in New York City. World Wide Group's 252 East 57th Street now stands at its final height of 217 metres (712 feet) at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and East 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan.

During ongoing construction boom, New York is getting supertalls, but great amount of decent 300ft-900ft towers too.

FYI, the building in front of this in the lower middle with the loggias is designed by Emery Roth & Sons, they also designed the San Remo, the Metlife Building, the General Motors Building, the Park Lane Hotel and Citigroup Center.
