I don't count this as street level yet. I count it when the concrete floor at street level is finished. BUt they are progressing fast, very fast given the horrible weather.

I think the cladding might end up looking similar to the cladding on this tower.

Well, they made some amazing progress today like pouring the 57th side and a bit on the 56th side and build scaffolding for a new floor.
And they really don't waste any space on the site.

It looks as if they already started to pour the columns at the 56th side.

That is why only I count it when the floor is at street level. I think it is more meaningful that way.

I can't wait until it is two floors above street level. Then we can visit the site and not have a view of it blocked by the temporary walls.
