You can now see that three of the tower perimeter columns are formed along the east wall
from the footings to grade level...can't tell if they have been poured yet...going up!

As a Hong Konger I am so envious that NYC keeps giving us these iconic supertalls! How does a building this tall gets approved? Is it purely just an accumulation of air rights??

On the cam they appear to be pouring gravel or crushed rock. Why? Can anyone explain what is taking place?

Looks like some kind of membrane they use between the dirt and first layer of rebar. Maybe some kind of waterproofing.

Indeed it does look like that. But I wonder why. I would think you would want direct contact between the bed rock and the cement foundation of the building. Further, wouldn't it be useful to have the first rebar drilled into the bedrock?

I think they would do that for rebar in the walls and columns.? Any metal latherers lurking in this forum can straighten this out?

a crane would have to be installed in order for columns to be erected. It doesnt look like a tower crane base has been made although they could bring in a mobile crane to erect the first columns
