Seeing the marble pieces in real life makes you appreciate even more the effort that went into the design

I just can’t get enough of this :wink: - I hope that after the first column they can pick up the pace, they’ve been working since October on the first one - Probably working around all the challenges.

They are working on the thinner marble "fins.”
I believe they went up in one day; speed has picked up!

And that’s only about 12 years ago. Forte, to the right, was the first to go up.

I am hoping this highrise development continues onward along Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues towards deeper Brooklyn.

Me too; development in Atlantic is moving along, I can see high rises all the way to Franklin Ave. in the next 10 years

If it didn’t say @dronalist, I would have said this is a rendering.

JDS and SHoP really hit it out of the park on this one. What a tower worthy of Brooklyn, the city, and Gotham.

I think the nighttime lighting here should be less challenging than Steinway—hope it lights up later this year.

Hope you’re right. So many lighting schemes seem to fail. One57 is a glaring example. It started out so promising and then fell apart. I remember the first July 4 they had an American flag blowing around in the wind. After that—nothing.

One57 is trying to keep costs down.
