    Great picture. It seems whenever I'm in that area, I don't know if its the weather, or just something about the area, but it always seems dark and dreary. That picture captures the atmosphere well.

    Default Yes.

    It's dreary around there even on pretty days. Not many trees etc.

    I know what you mean - but I gotta say, I love walking around there - the whol area btwn 34th & 23rd, btwn Park & 6th is filled with awesome buildings - especially awesome lowrise buildings.

    It really gives you a taste for what Midtown was once like

    Cool I like the side streets just north of this area.

    Really wonderful buildings around there -

    I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised by how well this building turned out. When I saw the tower's renderings, I thought we're in for some mediocrity of a uilding that'll only overshadow one of Manhattan's most famous churches. However, the facade turned out to be quite good, definitely above the average facade quality of your typical Manhattan high-rise.

    I still wish that they could've found a wider site for this tower though, a site wide enough for them to at least wrap some residences along the west side of the core.

    I apologize ahead of time if this question has been posted not too long back, but about how many more floors to go before this tower gets topped out?

    Agreed. Too bad about the blank wall, but otherwise it looks like a fine facade.

    The real residential garbage is the building across the street, seen in the first 3 photos.

    Exposed floor plates..."open-drawer" balconies.... and that pathetic "historical" style roof. Now that's ugly ugly.

    I do not know the number of floors that have been completed to date: but, the overall number of floors will be fifty-five.

    The Sky House website has a link that shows some current veiws from the construction site.

    Great shots. They really show how the Empire State Building truly dominates its surroundings, including the relatively tall condos that have sprouted up nearby.

    I walked by 29th street last night and noticed there is another tower crane on the same block as sky house, closer to madison ave. anyone know what it is going up there?

    The NYwired splash page has a section with a list of projects currently under construction - you can see if there is any new construction listed in that area. Other than that; I have not heard anthing about the project.

    Default I think that's 39 East 29th street

    There's already a wired threat. The renderings look nice to me, though I'm sure I'll now be villified for saying that about an O'Hara building.
