Is this building really going to be that blue? The color of that glass is awful.


#1655

Welcome!

No. The blue is protective film. It will be removed when the project is done. The color of the glass and paneling is silver/grey.


#1656

Ahhh I see. I just scrolled up and saw some of the previous closeup pics of the film on the windows. Pheww…That scared me for a second. :slightly_smiling_face:

Hey thanks for the welcome. I love all the updates you guys have on all of these projects. I’m limited to what I can see on Google street view, renderings and Instagram so its nice to see more in depth progress oriented updates.


#1657

I’ve often wondered how many New Yorkers hate this building because they think it’s an ugly bright blue!


#1658

Lol probably alot.

I thought it was blue just because on One 57.

CPT taking over.

Really wish they had carried over the pinstripes onto the east/west face of One57. Not sure what they were thinking.


#1662

One57 looks like something you’d see in Toronto. That facade is certainly not befitting of its Central Park location


#1663

I bet this will be taller than the ESB before winter hits.


#1664

ESB’s total height is 1,454 feet, could be there by New Years or after


#1665

I wonder what it’s gonna look like having a roof height exceed the ESBs pinnacle.


#1666

I actually just meant sans antenna, but that would be great.

CPT from a distance. Along with the impact of HY.

Also NJ’s new tallest, 99 Hudson.

If we look at where Journal Squared Phase 1 is, due to elevation, phase II will have more of an imopact than 99 Hudson.

Honorable mentions to the LIC cluster for its impact.
