I'm pretty sure that's how it'll be built. Even the foundations are in that shape, the blueprints...ect.

3rd I forgot.

These are the real deal they match the old render we had.

What pisses me off is the observer says the WSJ found them but WSJ links to the observer.

I just saw 1 of those rebars go all the way into the bedrock at the bottom left of the webcam image right where the bottom left column will come. The rebar that we see sticking out on the top of the column bases that are already there is just the tip of the iceberg.

I agree. A detailed (close up) render of the facade would be welcome.

The debate around the tower's style is interesting. You could argue that it is in the same class as One57 and Torre Verre, but what that is named has not been determined. There has been a definite shift towards extremely skinny and extremely tall, something New York has not seen since the 20s. Each of the three examples above are obviously quite different, but they are still a large departure from what HAS been going up.

do not see this building as brutalist at all...it is much too light and airy...much too organized and restrained.
Brutalism presents a much more defensive...fortress like presence.

I see this building much more in the high modernist form....think Mondrian or Sol Lewitt...conceptual...minimal...modernist
Idealized structure...maybe even utopian...cubic cell is the organizing element of the entire complex...seems to owe a lot to Le Corbusier and Gropius.
Interesting article that illuminates this idea:

nice to see the discussion here getting interesting

Brutalism = raw unfinished concrete facades. Brut in French = rough, raw, uncut. Has nothing to do with the word Brutal or Brute in English.

Brutalist architecture is not just about texture

Hahaha, on the webcam you can currently see three different sizes of excavators. The middle sized one is a "normal" sized excavator. Really puts into perspective how HUGE the three big ones are...

There are resemblances to Ten Museum Park, Miami. Similar aesthetic.

What a boring tower. It's incredibly tall, but the design leaves so much to be desired.

I still welcome it, but wish it had more.

With a bigger part of the site in the sun it's more clearer that an outline of the core is appearing. And exactly in the middle of the tower a even deeper hole has been dug.



I don't think that we won't have to wait long before we will see the footprint of the tower.
