Speculative discussions about terror attacks and whatnot are off-topic and derail threads. Take that garbage elsewhere. I'm not going to repeat myself here. If you have a problem, pm me. Don't litigate the matter here.

Desert punk is a very fair moderater,, he let's a lot of stuff fly, but who and why did someone talk about terrorism ON THIS bldg? Might be a tall bldg, but it's not 1WTC, and the meaning behind it.

Those voids are indeed caused by air bubbles. They don't pose a structural problem. The cracks look like they're actually ridges resulting from form seams.

I wonder if they will work the surface to eliminate these imperfections. It would be easy to grind off the ridges and fill in the voids to achieve a completely finished look. This is what I did when making new concrete caps for the waist high brick walls of my front and back porch. If intending on filling the voids, I'd think they'd want to do it soon to ensure good adhesion to clean concrete.

Edit: oh now I see the small cracks you are referring too. Hmmm, looks like the concrete dried out before completely curing.

Those cracks are superficial. They form naturally when concrete dries, or "forges". Nothing to worry about. And the small pits you mention can either be caused by air bubbles (formed by improper of insufficient vibration when pouring the concrete, or defective formwork (sometimes this is on purpose to give the concrete texture).

...And just realized the question was answered above.

Went by the sight this Easter morning and this building just looks nicer and nicer:

One thing I noticed is that is should now overtake the black building next to it fairly soon. I'm guessing in 12 to 16 weeks it will be taller than that building which means it should happen this summer.

Looks like the concrete actually got scratched there.

I've never seen concrete look so good!

Notice all the open interior space. It is just the core and these outer beams - everything else is free space.

I don't quite get why the external scaffolding is not consistent around the structure. I would think all the floors would need the same amount of work at the same time so the scaffolding would be even. But obviously it isn't.

Even here it isn't even. Note the lowest level of scaffolding that doesn't have netting. What is that about?

It has been commented that this building will be awesome because it won't be just another glass cladded structure. I couldn't agree more. The first renders created doubts in some people's minds but I think this is now clearly going to be a great building.

From 57th Street.

Note that the bits of concrete that you see on this side are just regular yucky concrete. Not the really nice stuff you see on the 56th Street side.

From Madison and 57th Street. It won't be long before it blows bast the low and fat buildings seen in front. Truthfully, those ugly things are the types of building they should be tearing down to build supertalls :-)

yeah, that concrete looks great. You can already see some dripping and some dirt, but with a bit of sandblasting that should be removed in no time.

Yes, there is a password protected website that are being disclosed to potential buyers, there you have a perspective of every unit actual view.

PS.: I am not a potential buyer, but I have friends working at CIM Group.

That is, by far, the best concrete I've ever seen.

Well someone obviously doesn't like concrete.

Nice update 600West, as for the harmed concrete, I'm sure they'll fix that up.

DAT concrete! It already looks amazing. Once they polish it it will sparkle.
