Instead of Top of the Rock go to Bar 65. Two floors below. Open to the public. No lines. Free. You just have to order a drink :slight_smile:

#1013

SWEET!!! What a beautiful site to see.

This is definitely setting a new benchmark for the city. Just look at that thing!

Ohio!

I am still hoping against hope they pull a Van Alen and sneak the spire in there at the last minute.
I like the tallest buildings in the city to have spires, it adds personality to the skyline. And if they make a creative spire design it could look amazing!

Didn’t even notice the setback in past updates, this is going fast


#1021

With the setback we should be rising even faster now.
Tom, I borrowed your image from a few weeks ago just to ask my following question.
Are we now where I outlined (very poorly) with the yellow line?


#1022

I really don’t think so yet, the height of the tower would need to double the cantilever above the front setback, which I don’t believe has happened. But it’s growing steadily, thanks for all the pics, I’m enjoying the progress. Sorry if I was vague but don’t know how to explain better.
