Yes, that's what makes NYC special and why it will always be the mother of all vertical cities. One of very few cities (if not the only city) where a nearly 500m tower can look just like any other building at street level.

Almost there. For comparison, 111 w 57th will be 120' shorter. This might be the only jump for the cocoon and hoist.

quick clip of one central park 10/15/19

here is a quick clip that i took of one central park yesterday, I have to say while all supertalls look less impressive while close up, one central park does have the tallest impression out of all the supertalls in New York, and also the nordstrom lobby store is opening on the 24 of October i might get a quick shot there inside if i am allowed?
