Several forms are off. It's hard to ascertain how the facade will look.

I can't do a screen capture but look at the 56th Street cam. Behind the crane and at the bottom you should notice the concrete, grey colored box shaped structures that are effectively making up the first floor. They were just made this past week. If you look at the left portion of those structures you will notice that they appear quite smooth. That is because the metalic forms that the concrete was poured into has been removed. If you look to the right portion of those structures you will notice they still seem to have lines - that is because the mettalic forms that have ridges are still on them and haven't yet been removed.

aaaah right i see! thanks alot for this!

Because this concrete is exposed, and going to be practically white, won't it need alot of cleaning? won't rain effect it's colour and stuff? just like it does on older concrete structures like the UK 60/70's council flats?

Or will this concrete be totally different in that aspect other than colour and strength?

I assume that the glass will be installed from the inside. That should be interesting.

Looking at the workers versus the open areas where the glass will be shows how huge the windows will be.

Interested to see how they'll install more core columns on the 57th street side, as it appears they only one visible one on the corner, and two in the middle, which deviates from the norm of having the cores stagnated around the other perimeter sides acting as window frames as well.

It would be interesting to see that anyway. Those glass panels must be about 10ft in size. Tough to handle, also because of the weight.

It seems like temporarily floors outside the facade.
Here is one plate being lifted.

Here are two plates already installed, and on the right side is a form being removed. ( notice the form in the left corner )

That plywood around the columns is probably protection.
Those other plates could perhaps also be for the floor of the lowrise part?
