50 West

Construction has officially topped out at 50 West, the 64-story residential tower from developer Time Equities in Lower Manhattan. Designed by Helmut Jahn, the 780-foot tower still has some construction underway at the top to finish the structure for the observatory. When completed, the observatory will allow residents to take in the spectacular view of the Lower Manhattan waterfront with landmarks like the Statue of Liberty. Meanwhile, interior work is underway on the lower floors in preparation for a 2016 opening.
