Steel it is. Crown is steel not cement.

Almost three months ago I posted this:

Setback heights:
1,428 (parapet)
1,366
1,319.5
1,288.5
1,257.5 (roof)
1,226.5
1,180
1,133.5
1,087
1,025
947.5
839
637.5

Floors are 15.5 feet high

Looks to be around 1,273 feet now, but the next box of steel will reach the next setback at 1,288.5 feet

for a minute I thought 1 Vanderbilt might beat this to the top out, but it looks like full speed ahead now.

I have a feeling this and One Vanderbilt will top out in the same month. CPT could be 1-3 months after

That is one nasty looking raw concrete wall; and hope that there will be some type of cladding going over that entire surface. I will probably find the answer by scrolling up on this thread and read a little history on the project: pardon me while I go do a little research,

Wait till you see it, your jaw will drop. It’ll be like watching Star Wars for the first time :slight_smile:

Agree with Falco. The siding over the concrete (which does have a few random openings) is awesome. The building actually is best known as classy because of that cladding.

Glad to hear that: I knew Greg P. would not let us down. I remember Greg (the P in shoP) saying how much he wanted to “change the NYC skyline” - for the better. This may be his crowning achievement. He and I worked together at a small Architectural firm in SOHO many years ago: he has move on to greater heights than I had ever expected - LITERALLY. I also remember him always playing REM on his headphones: “stand in the place that you live, think about direction, wonder why you haven’t before, la la la la”… Interesting little anecdote on the eventual success of that firm.
