The Gradn Central tower looks awful in that picture, i'm so glad it won't look like that hopefully!

But wow, i didn't realise 432 was going to look THAT tall! :O

Might not be the prettiest buildings but they are certainly unique.

looks like the dirt has gone!!!! More crushed stone has been delivered and the truck drove off without being loaded. The triple boom hasn't moved yet this morning.

Edit: The triple boom is just doing the job of a crane now lifting materials and equipment in and out. The skid steer has now gone. Looks like the next pour is going to be a big one!!!!

Indeed, they are filling in that corner with concrete prep stuff as far as you can see on the cam. Close to the end of the foundation I think

Been watching on and off all day and no dirt has been removed at all just crushed stone going in. Looks like by close of play tomorrow the ground will be covered in white sheeting and the remaing machines will be removed.

Most of those 2030 supertalls are represented by basic designs meant to represent skyline impact and massing. The final designs will surely be much nicer.

Park Ave cam indeed stays all white like it did a couple of times before. Not that it matters since not that much has happened the last couple of days and enough is visible with the other 2 cams.

Nearing the end of foundation work. The final slab section is being prepared for concrete. This section will be poured as a whole to finish the foundation.

Digging out the ramp took approximately three weeks, with the Hitachi ZX800 winding up almost in the street to finish the excavating to load a constant string of dump trucks lining E.56 Street. Most likely, the mini-excavators were used to fill the big excavator's bucket to complete the excavating, as it was nearing completion. Bear in mind, that this is a fifty foot plus deep excavation, so it took a while.

Once again, the totally unreliable Park Avenue cam acted up, today it was offline completely. Yesterday, the Hitachi was used only for occasional unloading of material, and I have the feeling it has left the site. I had wanted to watch the move-out operation, but because of the faulty cam, that was not possible to verify.

Once the final slab section has been poured, the foundation is complete, and the next phase of construction can proceed.

I suspect the Hitachi is still there and they won't take it away until the final slab is poured and they use it to lift their remaining equipment out. If I can I'll go by this weekend to see.

and the Foundation is part of the tower, so why do you think it should be PREP?

it can't be clearer that this tower i U/C...
I thought it should be prep because I hadn't seen actual pictures from people pointed into the hole and showing the foundations, and other people were saying that digging was still going on. I'm glad somebody finally cleared this up for me.

There was a ramp made out of dirt, that's where they dug. They made place to finish the foundations.
