Half day of work today. This thing has really been slow recently. Hope they pick up the pace soon.

That is used to stall everything, such as construction equipment and building materials, since there is barely space along the street. When the tower is high up it will be build up I guess.

some of the plans show a small two story building immediately to the right of the tower..quite small...maybe just elevators or service access...use not clearly specified ...small cafe on the plaza?
large hole to the right forming corner with park Avenue will be another retail building possibly a glass cube ala Apple store

looking good on site the exterior frames have climbed again, i am really hoping the cameras will be raised up a few floors so we can still see down on the site.

With the latest floor having been poured, preparations for the next floor above begins. The climbing exterior forms have been raised, and it appears that a new transitional element is being formed at the 57 Street side of the project. What appears to be wall forms are being placed, which appear to be different from the forming method that was used to form perimeter beams. It is possible that this will be the transitional element that will then carry the additional columns for the tower.

Meanwhile, the core rebar crew works on rebar placement in the core.

Yes, it seems they are working on a wall there. The outer columns are also good visible now on the 56th side. Btw, the Park Avenue cam isn't working.

Great, I didn't realize we were this far along. Progress should quicken very soon as we reach the main frame and floor plan of the tower. I imagine they are taking precautions with the North facade's extra perimeter support column additions. Let's hope we get through with this floor by Friday and witness the amazing speed of this thing next week.

I would expect this floor to take a bit more time than previous given the change over on 57th street. Once this level is done things should start to really move at a consistent pace.

Also expect the core to rise maybe this weekend, as well as the 56th crane.

Builder37, a forum user who is affiliated with the project, remarked that once it hits the seventh floor they should move to a 4 day cycle and then eventually even a 3 day cycle per each floor.

And I assume he mean the entire floor not just the core so they are only working on the fifth floor now. I think sometime in April this should really accelerate.
