I walked on 15 February 2013. There was an unobstructed view of the site from 56th St. From across 56th, the concrete looks like limestone. The windows appear to be at least 3m square.

Cladding will obviously need some touching up or polishing.

Yeah of course. But that will happen for sure after constuction. So the concrete will remain a bit dirty during construction.

will all floors be 700 sq meters,, thats approximately 22-2300 sq feet or close to that,( I think), when you think about it a lot of "average" houses are between 1200 and 2000 sq feet, this seems not massive but a pretty good amount of space for a single level.

I must have lousy eyesight. I couldn't perceive that from the south side of 56th St.

700sq metres is about 7,500sq feet. The average US home size is 2,200sq feet, which is about twice the average European home size. So you could fit three decent-sized family homes on every floor of this thing. Despite the apparently large core, that seems like a very efficient use of a small, valuable site.

This majestic site will be even more magnificent in a fairly short time with the addition of around seven new super talls.

Remember, we're dealing with two dimensions here, not just one dimension. Multiply 700 metres squared by 3.28 squared (10.7584), and you'll see that floor space is 7,530.88 feet squared. Actually, each side is 93.5 feet, so square that and get 8,742 square feet per floor. I think the core has sides of almost 35 feet, so if you square that and subtract it from the total floor space, you'll get 7,517 square feet outside the core, which almost perfectly matches 700 metres squared per floor. Good guess!

Also, we have a ton of work going on right now.

We have two pours going on right now. One from the top of the core and another from 56th Street. Also, I don't know if you guys have seen this yet or not, but I can now see 7 perimeter columns of rebar(?) instead of just four. (Sorry, I haven't been keeping up with this enough lately, haha.) I know you guys have been interested into how they'll get to 7 per side while maintaining this building's structural integrity. Workers are all near these columns as well, so I assume we'll see these go up several more feet by 5:00. Both cranes are also in action lifting materials from neighboring buildings. I'll see what else has happened since now around noon.

I can only see 4 columns coming through the floor on the 57th street side.
I guess we'll see pretty soon how they solve this.

Weird, you're right. There are 7 on the other three sides, though.

There will be al large transferbeam on the top level of the podium. Above the trasferbeam there will be 7 columns.

Yeah, that is more like it. So another level up and we will see the 7 columns.

Not exactly, according to those vertical floor plans, by the time the first residential sections start it will already be higher than that building.
