This is the site. I was there two weeks ago, and a large crew was working. My sources in NY inform me that a large crew works all day every day.

It looks decent for a filler.
I'm sure the previous building in this plot was more interesting tough

Intresting building, not bad though for the Times Square area. It will probably fit in.

Do you have pictures of it?
It's a shame the developres still thinking the same way they did in the 60's.They could have built this box and let the facades of the old buildings there.

Nice, slender tower. It looks a lot taller than 182 meter.
