NEW YORK | 53W53 (Tower Verre) | 1,050 FT | 73 FLOORS


I wonder if thats a permanent window?


Unless plans have changed very recently, it looks like there’s still a bit more to go! (Hopefully) Nothing to worry about!


renderings aren’t 100% reliable for small details like this.


The completed western section of the tower culminates sharply in a point just as in the renderings; so I trust the central and eastern portions will do so as well. The rendering suggests that what’s there now is simply the penultimate section, upon which the pointed tip will eventually sit.



That’s how the gold tip looked too before it was completed. There’s a very small tip that goes on.

My favorite angle.

Looks like the tip of the silver fin has been finished.

I apologize if these scale models have already been posted.


I don’t mind, they’re great! I love architectural models


Thank you Darth Nouvel.

You now have the Imperial Death March going in my head.
