    It really is developing quite well. *A building that execeeded my expectations. *

    FYI: *Columbus Circle has been bulldozed and reconstruction is underway.

    Seeing that complex finished will be quite nice. *Does anyone have any info on the night time lighting scheme? *I'm sure the crowns will be lit, but any additional information will be appreciated.

    I'd figure that it would only be the crowns. *I could very well be wrong, though.

    I agree.
    I expect something like Bear Stearns.

    AOL Time Warner Center is rising behind the Trump International Hotel & Tower. On the left Random House/Park Imperial is nearing completion. The view across Central Park's Sheep Meadow on 21 April 2002.





    A year later AOL Time Warner Center nears completion and Random House/Park Imperial completed. The view across Central Park's Sheep Meadow on 26 May 2003. Hearst Corporation Headquarters will rise to the left of Central Park Place.

    I hoped Columbus Center would dominate the Trump Tower by a little more.
    Oh, well. Now, I have more respect for the latter.

    It looks massive when you can't see between the towers.

    Fabb, NYatKNIGHT's shot is taken from further back so you get a better sense of the size difference. *Unlike the other picture that is closer to Trumps and gives an illusion of it being closer in size to AOL than it really is.

    You're right.
    The three of them form a nice ensemble.

    Great pics - my thoughts on the last few taken...

    AOL TW would be better if it were 10 stories taller, I'm more impressed with it then when the renderings first came out, but it's too...how do I say it...bulky? not that it's not slender from down 59th St, but there's somethign *missing from it. I think it's an urge for it not to stand out too much when seem from most of the rest of the city.

    The 5/26/03 shot is unreal - Random House, 1 WWP, Central Park Place, AOL TW, and the trump building on 1 CPW have all been built or redone in the last 15 years. I like them all and how they look together, but I think we got hosed on Random House. Way too dark and bland!

    Oh yeah, Hearst should improve this view a ton, it will be fairly tall with a much different design and exterior color. I can't wait!

    I'm not so sure.
    It might be even less prominent than Central Park Place.

    How tall is Central Park Place? *We have a pretty good sense of the expected height of the Hearst building from its thread.

    Tsk Tsk Tsk dbh. Do your own research.

    Central Park Place - 191m/628ft

    Hearst Magazine Tower : 597 ft.
    Central Park Place wins. And it's closer to the park, hence more visible.
