It will barely crack into the top 10 tallest when it (and Vista) is completed. I don't feel bad about that one bit

^I heard glass is not arriving until mid to late April due to the glazing contractor issue someone else mentioned above. They will start glass on a lower floor and a floor part way up and run 2 crews simultaneously to enclose it as quickly as possible once the glass is ready.

Great shot. Are we going to have to wait well after ogp is completed and sales are up to hear about plans for its big brother or is there anyone out there thinking or hearing tower two will start right after completion if sales are good?

I'm excited to see this thing done - and the other tower to the right in the picture (Essex). Should fill in some much needed things.

There are no sales to wait on as this thing is all rental. Maybe they’ll wait and see how well 1000M sells before proceeding with the 2nd tower as I believe tower 2 will be condos or have some condos.

Won’t SoMi be prominent in that shot as well? OMP East has got to have one of the best views in the city.
