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



wonder if they have any idea they captured this moment!


This is one of the finest works of modern architecture in the world.


Facts. We needed this neo-gothic massing in international style. It’s an ideal evolution of styles.









like a snow capped mountain.


Have we talked about how this last crane is coming down ( or is this just going to remain in place until the additional 200 feet is approved)?


Indeed. I think I’d prefer it if all three segments faded to silver.




That fade from dark grey to black is awesome. I originally thought the main apex and the rest of the tower were going to be the same color. It wasn’t until they started putting cladding up there that I noticed the gradual change in color. Looks nice.


I wonder if the crowns will have any lighting?


This is a cool edit.


On the right is the view Jersey side


It’s a shame this wasn’t taller. It would have rightfully taken its place amongst the giants in midtown. Still looks great though.
