    The 82-story tower made in USA, and materials come from United States of America all the same.

    GM is General Motors Building, a famous 50 story white stoned slub on Fifth Ave, Black Rock, is nickname of 38 story Eero Saarinen Black granite sculpted tower on 6th Ave and 53rd. And developer name for this Jean Nouvel’s 82 story is a consortium of Hines and another 2 firms, see above in the beginning of this article. Also, former design before approved was 1250 feet, and still 82 story, but it was slashed, since being too tall, happened before even before supertall 432 park and One57 were built. Now this a fifth/forth supertall in this area, if we count Stern’s 950 feet 65 story 200 Central Park West in the list of supertall(984 feet and up). Here, floor 12 is actually just above MoMa extension of 6 floors. So, it’s probably 76 constructed floors or even less. Like 432 park, marketing as 96 floors, while actually have 88 built, or 75 story One57, marketing as 90 floors, same happened with other tall buildings nearby, TWC, Random House, Trump Tower, even Downtown 30 Park Place, marketing as 82 story, while have 68 actually build floors, or WTC, 104 story, while count actually built floors as 78.
