    Good shots. It won't stand out as much as I'd hoped, but that's probably because TWT changes the judgment of the area of the midtown skyline and because of that Blm and Citi look smaller than TWT.

    Ahhh. Mr Rich Battista! Welcome back to Wired New York. You're just in time to witness the 851-foot and 54-floor Bloomberg Tower rising in Midtown.

    PS: Isn't it weird that I for one adore Bloomberg the tower while openly loathing Bloomberg the mayor?

    It's essentially the perspective in this case.

    yeah that view it wont stand out since its the shortest and farthest away of the three. But from the Qboro bridge its looking really good since you get a more even profile of midtown from there. I think the final height will be where the top of the crane is right now.

    Hmm...I think it'll be a little bit higher, actually.

    I have to say that Trum World Tower is really a great addition to the skyline. It's impressive.

    I've never seen renderings look so good. They have some amazing people working there. I would buy some of the renderings and hang them on the wall. I'll only post this rendering of Bloomberg to give a hint at some of their work.

    Excellent work and I love when an NYC firm does well.

    What I find amazing is how tall that rendering is! And how the setbacks match up, its hard to believe but it is not exagerrated.

    shouldn't Bloomberg be focused on the city? Not building skyscrapers... :shock:

    The building came before the mayorship...

    He's not even part of the company any more-sold his share.

    Regardless, Bloomberg is indeed starting to prove to be a great additon to the Midtown Manhattan skyline; IMHO from a Sydney fan of Manhattan.
