I hope that cam is back up soon, I noticed the sections as well. Looks like there are quite a few being offloaded.

1700 ft would have looked completely unproportional compared to the rest of midtown. On the other hand, it might have spurred developers into overtaking this building and eventually might have resulted in a megatall in midtown!

After the drill appeared several days ago, tendons are to be installed into the bottom slab in the northeast corner. Just now, the hole drilled earlier has been blown out with compressed air in preparation for the tendon installation. It is not known how many holes were drilled, or how many tendons will be installed.

The buildings they are gonna torn down are historical and have a beautiful style. If the tower project were at least gorgeous, then perhaps I would understand, but it's not. It's a super tall tower, which seems awfully thin.

Any guess what for? Another smaller crane maybe to help until the entire retails section is completed maybe?

MrSlippery519,

"Any guess what for? Another smaller crane maybe to help until the entire retails section is completed maybe?"

I do not believe another crane will be installed. I could be totally wrong about such an assumption, but do not believe so, for the reason that crane choice and placement is designed early in the design development phase. What I think is, is that perhaps there was a change order in order to accommodate loads not anticipated, or perhaps an error was made during foundation construction, requiring remediation by the foundation contractor. These are just guesses on my part, as I do not really know the reason. In any case, the area was drilled for tendon installation.

It appears that crane is being prepared to jump. One new tower section is on the trolley hoist, which is located just below the slewing ring. The new section to be inserted is seen adjacent to the climbing frame. The crane boom is lowered, and is carrying a tower section on the hoist line, for balance. The climbing frame will be raised, and the new tower section will be rolled into the climbing frame.

It looks like the crane won't jump after all today. The tower section is no longer on the trolley hoist, and has been replaced with the other sections. Perhaps it was just a test. With daylight hours coming to a close, I thought it unusual to start such a procedure so late in the afternoon.

I am disappointed. After having the 56St cam down for a few days, It came back on, however, it is by EarthCam, and the view narrowed considerably from the previous cam view. I wonder why the cam was down in the first place, which was much clearer than the new one, and I wonder why it has been replaced with a view that is not as encompassing as the previous.

I thought perhaps the cam was originally down for relocation as the building rises.

Good chance the crane will rise during the weekend.

Actually I kind of like the zoom as you can see the action better. Though I think the resolution is better. Maybe they lowered the resolution to save money.

But you can still see all the key action well, you just may have to switch cams to see everything.

The 56St cam is down yet again, after being up briefly. I preferred this view of the previous cam:



You saw more of the entire site within one view, and it was easier to see progress daily.

Maybe the new cam is being repositioned, since down? Actually the resolution on the 56St. EarthCam is a bit better than the other two cams. Let's hope the 56St cam returns soon. It would be better for watching the crane jump, which will be soon.

For the first time they are building something from 57th street. Looks like a cover for the walkway for now, but not sure what thats going to lead to?
