HTF does 35HY get sunlight reflection from that angle?

(EDIT)

PPS: I was referring to post #3104.

That looks like Manhattan West. Also, it's a reflection of the Hudson which is reflecting the sky. So its a Reflection of a reflection.

12 floors to go and it’ll be the 2nd tallest in the city.
2nd tallest if the construction of Central Park Tower and 111 W 57th St were halted. But of course that won't happen, so by the time 1 Vanderbilt is finished it will be the 4th tallest in the city, UNLESS the guy is saying that it will top out very soon, while those two buildings are still under 1401 ft?

CPT is already over 1300 ft so there is no way One Vandy can catch that unless there is a stop work order on CPT that lasts until the summer.
The intagramer is obviously being hyperbolic because its his Dad's project.

I'd love to see a high resolution version of that last shot. Its good desktop wallpaper material.

Great set ILNY!

Or, he genuinely isn't aware that CPT and 111 W 57th St will end up being taller than 1401 ft. Considering that CPT's growth slowed significantly over the past several months, he might really think that it's almost topped out.

But if he does realize that CPT and 111 W 57th St will be taller than 1401 ft when completed, he might be implying the remaining 12 floors and the spire of One Vandy will be erected so insanely fast that it will actually be taller than both of them for a short while. We both agree this is extremely unlikely, but I think the probability isn't zero. One Vandy has been rising unprecedentedly fast so far, and the remaining floors will get smaller and smaller, so each floor will likely take less and less time to construct, and the building may rise even faster than it has.

The Empire State Building is famous for being completed in under 14 months. I wonder if One Vandy will beat that.

UPDATE: I just scrolled back to older posts in this thread and saw that One Vandy started going up about 14 months ago. So I can answer my own question: No, the ESB will remain the record holder.

Yeah, the speed with which they built the Empire State Building is a historical anomaly. People died.
