Yeah, concrete wouldn't be used to clad any modern skyscraper anywhere. But still, RW specified some sort of polished nickel cladding. These latest renders are official, no? Obviously we can't make a call on materials from a rendering, but it sure doesn't look like nickel.

Very dominating. Who cares if it sticks out, that's what makes it dominating. What are the 2 sloped buildings next to the esb? Hope they won't be built there.

Hudson Yards. The shorter one is starting construction in October, with the taller one likely not far behind. 10 years from now looking from that vantage point, the ESB will have tons of company.

Stay on topic. There's people all over the world that come on here for information etc, and it all seems to be pure hate with one thing or another. You can never please anyone these days, someone always has a gripe about something. The fact people are hating on something that in reality doesn't even exist yet, is a bit dramatic. Come on!!!! Give the poor thing a chance! If it was not that height, you'd complain. If it were wider, you'd complain. Let's keep up with photos, information and stay on topic. I'm sure many many people are sick of it by now.

I guess a city like NYC can only really build up, taller, bigger.. I think it's incredible how tall this building is, and the many more to come. 432 could be the new benchmark for height in N

Thank you.

I am getting so tired of all this off topic non sense. Another week or two of it, and I'm abandoning SSC. It's the same tiresome, unnecessary, unending, pointless dribble. Anyway...

Photos 3 weeks old as a heads up, but it gives a different perspective on the site. The rebar and supports you see on the far right corner look unchanged, but the ones sort of middle left have about doubled in size, and now a similar set up is on the bare concrete wall on the far left of the photo. Wonder when we'll see a crane on site?

yankeesfan1000, awesome pic you've shared. Gives us a good insight to progress. It's quite cool they've set up cams for us to all watch it being built too!

It is very interesting to watch this construction since they have to operate in such tight spaces. I wonder what precautions have been made for the building to not damage its neighbors when it'll sway?

Seems like a lot going on today. Digging, unloading, working on the walls all at once.

I guess that they are about to start work on the perimeter columns of the building located at that spot, though I'm not sure

The concrete of that wall has probably hardened?

Looks like columns will start to rise any time now. Rebars are there on the right side.
