I didn't see that they did the 57th street side. Are you sure? Still looks like unpoured forms and rebar there. I'm wondering when they will get to it.

Looks like they are back to full capacity now. They are flying, and there must be around 40 people on the site today!

With the threat of heavy rain and wind ahead, workers are moving to minimize delay after the storm, covering the previously formed and reinforced areas that still need to be poured with tarps. In the foreground, scaffolding for future formwork for the next floor level is being erected upon the section of floor that was poured yesterday.

As long as the rain has not arrived, work continues as much as possible.

Does anyone know what the black matting is they are putting down over the rebar on the 57th street side?? They did it yesterday over the new pour on the 56th street side however there is no concrete on the 57th side yet.

Also on the 56th street side they are setting up for the next level over the newly poured section

Looking at it right now and the place looks busy and normal. Maybe they were giving out free cookies!

As per city order all construction stops in NYC at 12 noon today. But they are flying in advance of that

They are mounting supports for the formwork of the next level and there is also a truck with more rebar cages, seems that they are assembling some of them out of the construction site.



edit, they unload all the rebar and it is raining in NYC... oh the globalization!

As per city ordinance, construction is to halt by 12:00 noon. The jobsite has been secured, critical items covered against rain, and the barricades have been reset for street and pedestrian traffic.

Some work has been done: scaffolding for future formwork erected, core reinforcing, securing the jobsite.

The rain has turned into snow, the workers must be glad that the construction had to be stopped.

Thanks to NYGuy for finding this and posting it on SSP, and with 10' by 10' buildings lining the exterior, this could end up being very glassy.

"... While the finished showroom won’t be open for a few more weeks, the sales team is, nonetheless, selling apartments. From what has been reported by the Wall Street Journal, the building has already sold approximately 10% of the units. We hear rumors that sales at 432 Park Avenue have been significantly higher and the project hasn’t even been open to the public yet.

While the average prices have been reported to be $5,800 per square foot, we understand the prices to be closer to $5,300 per square foot if one excludes the pricey penthouse. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if the developer raises prices soon based on their sales success to-date.

432 Park Avenue has a good mix of apartments, from 1 to 5 bedrooms, most with incredible views out of their enormous 10’ x 10’ windows. The building was designed by architect Rafael Vinoly and is being developed by CIM Group and Macklowe Properties. Macklowe is also the exclusive sales agent for the project."

While 10 by 10 is huge the project will still look the same.
