About this creation
This model is approximately 1/650th scale, similar to my other skyscrapers.

Here's a reference shot of the real building, still under construction, that I took from Central Park last summer.

One57 is a new 1004ft supertall residential skyscraper in midtown Manhattan. It represents the start of a new trend of tall thin residential towers sprouting along the southern edge of Central Park offering the inhabitants sweeping views, as well as sky-high real estate prices. The bottom floors of the building contain a Park Hyatt hotel. Above it rise 92 luxury condominiums. The tower made headlines in 2012 while under construction when Hurricane Sandy blew over the construction crane boom and left it dangling precariously a thousand feet above 57th Street.

The building contains 75 floors, although it is advertised as a 90 story tower. The 10,923-square-foot duplex penthouse on the 89th and 90th floors has already been sold for a record $90 million.





The tower is designed by French architect Christian de Portzamparc and is said to resemble a waterfall. The southern face features an alternating banded glass facade that gently flows downward to the street, while the eastern and western faces feature pixelated glass panels evoking a spray of falling water droplets.

this one is totally new to me. The clean flowing lines of this bldg make your MOC look a lot smaller than it actually is. Great work as always and nice pixelated bldg technique

Quoting Rocco Buttliere Beautiful! I've actually contemplated some similar techniques for the Roosevelt University tower in Chicago, across the street from CNA Plaza. There are some nice similarities between the two.
I wasn't familiar with that one, but you're right there's a lot of similarity.
