Yes, heavy rains the past two days here. But not slowing them down at all.

You are correct, Column 1 marked in the screen shoot is actually the center left perimeter column

FIRST POUR OF THE FOOTINGS GOING ON RIGHT NOW!!! U/C! U/C! U/C!

They will need to build a shorter ramp once the tower portion goes up to be able to let it grow and deliver materials.

I am excited to see the organisation around this towers construction. Itll be a very difficult managment to errect this one.

That late "discovery" (oh lord ) of mine makes me even more surprised that they are picking up with the construction so early, since half of the place where the towers footprint goes is now occupied by the ramp. So they will build one half of that little tower and clean the other in the same time. Quite crazy, but I like it

Wow, seeing another NY supertall under construction has just made my evening. It certainly is a striking building, I like it just for the sheer height and slenderness of it. Is there any other skyscraper in the world with such an extreme width to height ratio? When's it due to complete?

IDK why, but something gives me a feeling Donald Trump is planing something massive as well, secretly in his ugly golden cage appartment.

I can´t believe he´ll just watch Barnett and CIM building NY´s tallest residential tower w/o any action.

It's funny ppl think Trump is the development king of NYC. He's more likely to put his name on a tall building, than he is to build one.
