    Take a look at photo 2 & 3; that is a pretty intricate assembly process. I think one reason for the seemingly slow progress may be because so many builders today are just not familiar with all the new types of building materials that are being manufactured these days.

    I am thinking of one hundred eleventh and 123 Washington, also seemingly slow progress there too: I say seemingly because there are a variety of reasons why the developers/builders are deliberately stalling the completion - waiting for the 'market' to return may be one of those reasons - construction financing another.

    On another note, I like design of this building: it's not exactly what one would call 'modern architecture' or 'traditional/classic architecture' : sort of a hybrid design - nice.

    Great photos, Zippy. The immediate area is a very appealing landscape.

    Better than Jean Nouvel's 100 Eleventh a few blocks south?
    Very nice, but nope. Are they comparable?

    The waiting game is over! Maybe it was the endless heat or the full moon that caused the cosmic shift, but the construction netting at 200 Eleventh Avenue has finally come down. After being hidden behind a veil for the last two years, these 19 stories of super-luxury condos (and their "en-suite Sky Garage") clad in swooping stainless steel by Annabelle Selldorf and her team at Selldorf Architects are showing off their shiny assets.

    Up high a full facade of oversized multi-paned windows look west over the new bowl o' grass at Chelsea Cove and the hinterlands beyond the Hudson. A stack of terraces face east, with views of sunrises and the skyscrapers of Midtown. As of May only one unit was still available, priced at $6.23 million, but that was recently chopped to $5.95 million. (Fashion designer Domenico Dolce bought two penthouses for $29 million.) If that's still beyond doable, vicarious thrills are available via video at Vica Design, where a fly-through of a duplex is just a click away. So, the debate can finally begin: Better than Jean Nouvel's 100 Eleventh a few blocks south?

    This one shares something with Gehry's tower: An oddball side, also facing south (here it's on a lot line).

    Right now it's mostly faced in white stucco (applied over dry-vit, over cinder block). But there's still work to do and it will be interesting to see what the final face looks like. Hoping the blank wall gets something nice -- it's in a very prominent location and visible from way down along the Chelsea Piers & Hudson River Park.

    And it's way too bad they didn't do a little something up top to hide the awkward boxes of mechanicals.

    Great looking face and details (other than the window surrounds, which look too big and clunky). Seems obvious that this was designed by team lead by a woman.
