309 Fifth Towers, Glassed. Rendering vs, Reality A Good Match!

This must be the week for under followed residential developments that are sprouting throughout Manhattan. To close out the week we have 309 Fifth Avenue, a 34 story, 452' tall (think high ceilings), rental building designed by SLCE as architect. While the location is far from inconspicuous, nary a mention on the internet for 11 months! Plenty has happened since then as you can see from the current state of the project. The building is now glassed up to the 26th floor and topped. There will be a total of 169,000sf including over 10,000sf retail with the rest being 100 market rate rentals and amenities such as fitness center, bike storage and common roof terrace. At this rate I would expect that the targeted opening date of September 2013 is spot on.
It should also be worth noting that the "reality" looks like a very close match to the rendering.
