Can't they use the hole on the left/west side for that?

btw, I'm 99% sure this is the floor where we see 7 columns on the 57th side.

Hey there folks, I haven't been here for quite some time so I'll post an update to my diagram. I counted the height to the top of the core form work since I dunno what the current pouring status is behind those forms. In this case, the building would be 47 meters or 155 feet tall

Roof height used below

Below the tower on the other side I believe, considering that diagram is viewed from the Park Avenue/ east side. And I think the cars have an entrance at 56th st which has an car elevator.

I could be wrong but in the official diagram you posted above the elevation height number is counted from the lowest underground floor slab. However the floor slab of the lobby is from where the height should be counted and from there up to the top of floor 7, which is behind the core forms, the height is 155 feet (5x31 feet)

No pour so far today. Unless they can pour everything tomorrow (doubtful) it looks like no jump until next Tuesday or so which means they are still taking more than a week between the floors.

The order of things seems to be:

Pour the lower portion of the exterior beams.
Insert big horizontal rebar beams above that.
Pour core.
Pour top of outside beams.
Pour the floor slab.

Then they can jump.

Actually, I am not sure if the core or the top of the outside beams gets poured first.

Looks awesome. This tower will contribute to, rather than detract from, the layered makeup of the area. It should look just bold enough on the skyline.

The tiny creases really give this a classy look.

Also that concrete is going to be so brilliant white in the sun!
