Nice pictures...this is what I see several times a day...now can you imagine the impact this structure will have when it is more than TWICE as tall any of those highrises (IBM, GM, Fuller, Four Seasons etc..)you see in the background?!!!

I just can't imagine all that swaying motion at the top once finished. Is there some kind of mechanism that'll be installed in order to address this?

Leave the kid alone. At least he is taking an interest in it. People should be encouraging him rather then pick on him on this forum. At least he is taking an interest in the tower.

Will the cam be raised as the tower goes up? Should start rising pretty quickly.

Pretty sure they have already been raised at least once so far. In the future they will be raising them every other week it seems at the pace they are going.

They should put a cam in the ESB when the building gets to super heights. Would be nice to see it from the Empire State Building, especially because it will be taller then the ESB.

Me too. I was thinking the same thing. We will appreciate the beauty as it gets taller, fitting into that tight enclave.

More information,

Construction worker injured at 432 Park Avenue
March 15, 2013 07:39PM
By Guelda Voien

"Debris falls five stories, marking the latest accident at NYC’s soon-to-be tallest residential tower"

"Falling debris injured a construction worker today at 432 Park Avenue, the site of the skyscraper under development by Macklowe Properties and CIM Group, The Real Deal has learned.

The Fire Department of New York confirmed that a 30-year-old male was injured when a pallet of wood dropped onto his leg at the construction site for the project, a highly anticipated condominium development on the former site of the Drake Hotel. The call came in at 4 p.m. and the man was taken to New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, according to a FDNY spokesperson. Though the FDNY would not comment further on the man’s condition, a source familiar with the situation said that he was in stable condition.

The wood, a four-foot by eight-foot piece of plywood, was being hoisted to the fifth floor when it came loose and plummeted to the ground, according to a complaint filed this afternoon with the city’s Department of Buildings.

Harry Macklowe of Macklowe Properties declined to comment on the incident. A spokesperson for CIM, a Los Angeles-based private equity firm, did not immediately return requests for comment, nor did a spokesperson for Lend Lease, the contractor on the project.

The construction accident comes on the heels of another incident at the site, between East 56th and East 57th streets, where a crane smashed into a parapet wall at the adjacent 48 East 57th Street. DOB issued a stop work order on Feb. 21 and cited Lend Lease for “inadequate safety measures,” records show. However, the violation was quickly resolved, and work resumed shortly after, according to published reports.

The DOB also issued a partial stop work order shortly after initial demolition work began at the site in October 2011, and the department cited the developers for beginning excavation without proper notification. (Of course, 432 Park is not the only major New York City development to face construction woes and DOB actions.)..."

While no one likes accidents, it's bound to happen on construction sites anywhere. Again, hope the guy recovers soon and the project can continue smoothly.

I just hope this increases the risk awareness. Accidents can happen easily.

Luckily it's just a minor accident, such thing could have been far worse.
