Please, please tell me that you have shot more pics from this positions,
including whole Park Ave Tower and 4 Seasons Hotel+GM Bldg behind, a.s.o.
Or anybody else did?

Coz i think it would be a shame if nobody do such "unique" pics
before 432 is rising.
I would do it by myself, but unfortunately i have no chance to visit NYC before mid 2013 :-(

I think from E.57th St it should also be possible to take pics of Park Ave Place (60 E.55th) and maybe even of Heron Tower?

wide angle is most appreciated, but snapshots are welcome too :-)

thanks in advance, if anyone take them or already did, and give me a link

Rods that long (if they are that long) might be for the tower crane base, but I doubt the crane will be smack in the middle of the building.

it is not bland, it is wonderfully understated and elegant, just as it should be to suit Manhattan

i think it will look similar to this only much taller

can't wait for floor plans to surface...

Alright maybe it's not quite as bland ad I said, however, I stillborn see it with any elegance. With the height of a building like this it should have a more eye catching design. More expression. The building fits into new York but I really don't like the cliche limestone color it has.

Today you can see the rebar (massive) being placed for the first of the core wall. The wide pad that was poured last week forms the footing for the core, the core wall will be centered on this footing...going up!

"It looks like they have some really long rods - like 100 feet. Is it normal for rebar to be that long? "

Rebar is not normally that long. These particular rods are known as tendons. The rock was excavated to the bottom elevation required for the footings, a concrete pad was poured to provide a level base for the drill. The drill bored a hole of the required length thru the pad and into the bedrock below. After blowing out the rock dust from the hole, the tendons are inserted and grouted into the rock. They are post tensioned after the grout has cured. The footing forms are erected, and rebar is placed prior to pouring the concrete. The tendons anchor the footings to the rock below.

Thanks for the very informative comment. I was surprised to see those drilling machines on top of recently poured concrete - now I know why they were doing that

Still, those rods were very long. Do they go way down into the bedrock or will they be sticking fairly far up in the air.


Lots of rebar visible in the web-cam now.
