One Vanderbilt Reaches Supertall Territory Above Midtown East, Manhattan

Quote:
new steel columns continue to sprout along the perimeter and core, having now punctured the 1,000-foot mark.

I agree, but unfortunately the facade details just get lost on the overall scale of the entire composition. Seems like the architect was so obsessed with his idea that he simply forgot to check the overall look and scale of the details. This building is just too large for these tiny details. Also, it does not feature any meaningful and stylish middle-sized features.

Surprised this is only 58 floors ? High ceilings...and lantern structure on top for the 1,401 ft height.

There will be a public observation deck to look out over the skyline and surrounding area at a height of about 1,020 feet.

I guess this has gone through tests and approved but we had many new 50 to 80 story towers going up in the current building boom that now have to be retrofitted with compliance cladding !

...IRRELEVANT AMENDMENT...Read more detailed description of facade materials. Great to see substantial quality used in this project. Lightweight cladding has become common across the world.
