That last pic makes me wonder how many years it will be until we have a similar race for height happening on the Northern edge of Central Park?!

Would definitely be cool to have a full valley of supertalls, but zoning regulations seem pretty locked in place for that area, and there really isn't a demand for such heights. So it'll probably be at least several decades, if at all

Most of the areas surrounding Central Park are protected historic districts so supertalls going up elsewhere around Centeal Park is very unlikely.

Check out this nifty map showing all the historic districts and protected properties in NYC.

Also, there are height limits once you get out of the special midtown district where there are no height limits.

Man I have talked a lot of sh!t about this tower over the years. A lot. But I'm starting to really like this thing.

Sorry Gary for all those bad things I said about you

Those close-ups, if the color is true, are wild. The color that is. What have they stated the color would be...Powdery Blue Silver? Really excited to see it bare naked, without its wraps. Thanks for the Close-ups!

Yup, they're at 1,488 feet. And the next floor will be at 1,500, then the roof at 1,515. Then the crown
