If these bends are for the openings, they are a lot less superficial than I originally thought, for some reason I thought we would start seeing them when the glass went up. They also look to span more than the two floors the renders show.
The 2 floors are shown, it's just the columns shift for 2 floors above and below the actual mechanical areas.

I think the gap in the cladding will likely span only two floors but the steel columns need more space to achieve that curvature and I imagine they can’t make the bend more pronounced (right angles in the extreme case) and still achieve the load bearing/distribution they need.

Anyone know when they are removing the tarps off the bottom of the building?
Is the glass behind schedule?
