Both 250 West 55th and 1715 Broadway continue their rapid ascents, with 250 West 55th soaring upwards in recent weeks… seemingly at a pace of four floors per week! The cladding continues to rise quickly, and its relative beauty is highly dependent on the weather. When cloudy, it seems quite dull and almost entombs 250 West 55th in a wall of boredom and solitude… but when sunny, the cladding shines quite brilliantly. No cladding is present on 1715 quite yet, although given its height it should not be too far behind. 1715 Broadway is now taller than its neighboring residential highrise, and the next setback should be in roughly 5-10 floors.
