    They probably mean the 781 foot design.

    It's facade reminds me of the new Freedom Tower... but it's a much better design.

    Took a few more photos of the site today...the new BOA tower will rise into the frame, joining Verizon and Conde Nast in the sky...

    It looks good, but the upper tower seems to have stopped, Goldman Sachs style...

    what? if youre referring to the transparent meshwork, i think that it is nicely different. it is only transparent from some angles. and its good to have a buiding that dosent end in a glass crown. (i actually like glass crowns, but still)

    NO, the upper 10 to 15 floors have been incomplete for a long time now..

    I know its called construction. But it has been that way for a long time. I've watched this tower rise from the ground up. The cladding on those upper floors came to a halt a long time ago. I know the building isn't complete - the slowdown at the top has the "appearance" of stopping, just as the Goldman Sachs tower in JC did.

    Isn't that a different rendering? Or is it just clearer? It looks like the lighting is different.

    i quess its clear now that the top will be nearly 200 feet of lattice work because you can see the spire and the sky through the last nearly 200ft :?
