...and an instant landmark.
Amazing and wonderful.
I walked by and stopped to do the same thing. The slimness makes it seem very tall, and the way the balconies march up the face exaggerates the effect. Really cool, this one.I walked by yesterday. Looking at this dead on from across Eighth Ave is an incredible perspective. However, it is the only perspective that this thing should be looked at from.
34 floors, no glass. But I'm loving it more as it gets taller. This is an instant landmark for sure....and we seem to be getting several as of late.
The uniqueness takes away from the huge amount of blank wall. Wonder why the glass isn't going up yet. Lack of space?
So now the question is....How are they going to run earthquake drills in this place????

A guy on site today told me there will be NO windows on any of the upper floors of north wall --
But he was just a concrete guy, so what would he know?
Like sfenn said: 34 floors ...
i walked by today and same observations as everyone else - very cool from straight on, it's so skinny it's exotic and you want to stare, but the blank walls are horrid - i think it would be awesome if they could make at least one of those giant walls into one of those graceful waterfall type things you see at swanky clubs or $$ office lobbies - that would be an instant landmark! can you image, a 400 ft wall of water in midtown...if the waterfall concept is too much, how bout some cool murals....
...eh, it'll probably end up with tacky adds
part of what will become the garbage chute(s)
Look what I also found in there. I didn't know about that cool slope on the roof. This tower looks really tall on this rendering.
