That small building that is pact in between those large buildings on the other side 56th really draws my attention! It is so contradictory to all the surrounding buildings and especially towards 432 when it is constructed.

Relentless owners. There is a building like that right next to the U/C 250W55th street.

More bad weather coming Tues/Wed. We are in for some slow going here. Maybe they can get some more of the floor poured on Monday?

Rain is no problem, just inconvenient.

Rain and strong winds. Probably enough to shut down construction at this site. But just one day.

This will be a very glassy tower. It will have six windows roughly 15' x 15' each in size across every floor.

Crane is back in action. Still seems like fewer workers than normal.

I am looking forward to seeing the cladding. I expect this tower to be the Trump World Tower of the 2010s

They're also putting the rebar boxes in place for the next floor. A lot of progress today!

So I just looked on the cam and this morning they already poured the whole floor on the 56th side and they placed at least four rebar collumns. Pouring is going much faster when they are using that long arm thing instead of the normal crane
