That has yet to be confirmed.

I'll try and stop by tomorrow and see if workers are still on site.

I was just there yesterday and there were workers on site, concrete pours happening, and someone washing a truck that just finished a pour. I'll post the pictures once I get them uploaded on my blog.

Do you have a link to an authoritative statement confirming that claim, or are you just spewing speculative bullshit?

It's not true. Workers are still on site and construction is still going on. Judge has not issued a stop work order so this assumption is false.

But this is the Central Park Tower thread. Back on topic please!

Wow, amazing shots! It almost doesn't look real. It looks like clay models or something. I think it might be the lighting or the sky. Was this during yesterday's crazy weather?

So they scrapped the plan to light the crown on One57?

Sure seems that way, which is disappointing. Could be a technical problem with the lighting strips, and if that's the case there's not much incentive to fix it, especially if doing so could disrupt their ultra-rich residents. Which is a bummer not only because the scheme looked good in renders, but because it justifies the existence of the otherwise funky looking grille.

I have this worry about the spire of the Wiltshire Grand in LA, which has a clear technical issue but hasn't been fixed and looks totally ridiculous at night with the bottom 10% or so lit up. I wish developers were required to see these things through as rendered, at least when they're so prominent on the skyline.

The cantilever is now clearly visible, and a rather dominant detail on this building.


Although in this tower it was mainly done to gain extra floor space, it is sometimes also done from a pure architectural point of view:


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Rotterdam


This building in Rotterdam a a mere 140 m high, but it was the largest building (in volume) that was built in The Netherlands at one time.
Together with the modern bridge and other buildings nearby, at has become THE landmark of Rotterdam
Attracting many tourists who are interested in the enormous architectural variety in the city.

The main structure of De Rotterdam is all concrete, as is usual in The Netherlands.
During construction, hydraulic jacks were mounted between piles and main foundation. Due to increase in height and weight of the structure, the jacks compensated for the "setting" of the piles. At completion, the gaps between piles and foundation were filled with concrete (10's of centimeters), and the jacks were removed.

The soil in the West of the Netherlands is very weak, and piling is necessary for even a small (stone) private home.


(The above seems a little bit off-topic, but it's nice for people who are only on this part of the forum to read about other cities as well. And it's a bit advertising for Rotterdam...!)

Maybe to gain extra floor space, but definitely to gain a view of Central Park because of 220 CPS.

Unfortunately the rich residents will not want the public going up the building.


Are there any residential skyscrapers with observation decks in the US other than the John Hancock (which is mixed use) in Chicago?
