They finally moved those pieces that were sitting near the west Favco for months into the center. Hoping they slide the crane east so they can work on the west diving boards

UAKoops, I was going to say the same thing... that structure is indeed creepy and menacing looking.

That's a great angle! They closed the hole today with rebar, where the former western tower crane was standing, and the first (big) part of the western flying stairs also arrived.. steady progress, I hope the two sliding cranes will have finished their work before christmas..

That brings a new perspective into it, thanks for posting!

Shouldn't be to long until the west side is ready for a big pour. The west crane has also been working later then normal this week moving around materials where the new dirt was put down

based on their pace, they should have the bar at the diving boards bent and tied, the concrete poured, and the dirt backfilled like they have done on the northeast portion in a month, barring weather.

i am guessing that they are using that as a road surface/protective working floor for the deliveries of calatrava steel and equipment.

if anyone knows. what is the elevation difference from the hall floor to the street level? and what is the elevation difference from the street level to where the arches meet?

trying to figure how they will make that connection when the time comes.

Due to the street's sloping, there's no definitive point for street level. On Church side entrance is about 326' above PANYNJ datum while on Greenwich at 316'. The main hall is at El. 274' and the balcony level at 295'.

Can you please elaborate on "where the arches meet"?

what I mean to say is where the wings begin to move in the outward direction, where they are at their closest point, the centerline (east/west) of the roof structure. the elevation at that point.

You mean where the red spot is? If so, then that would be about 415' above datum.

that is a VERY old render from the designing stage and is absolutely nothing like what we are getting here. This is way more accurate.
