    They've topped off and are adding facade. You can't tell from the photo but the faced looks quite striking. This will be a nice mid-sized building.

    Yeah it will be a mid-sized building but it will sure look bigger there since is surronded by a bunch of low rises. It is a good thing. :P

    Excellent, more height and glass for the west side. This side of the skyline should be more impressive than the east side.

    From the south, it has succeeded in pretty much obliterating that smokestack from view - thankfully. It looks great!

    I wonder how they will bring new residents if there is nothing in that area. It is just lonely. surrounded by parking garages and car dealerships.

    I wish Trump will hurry up and built more towers in its vicinity.

    The Helena is closer than any other residential building to the next segment of the Hudson River Park to open (under construction now). Other than that not much is around.

    What is that dark building in the background anyway? Isn't that an office building?

    It's an office building for BMW whose glassy, sloping, base recently underwent a renovation.

    I guess about 8 floors of glass to go.

    I do want to see more new residentil development to happen around the Helena. It is ashame this the only building going up around there. It will feel so lonely been there all alone at nightime. 8)
