I agree. This looks great. Can't wait to see the windows.

Sorry if someone mentioned it before, I´m new reading this thread, but do you guys know if this building´s going to offer residences for rent? or it´s going to be a place only with residences for sale?

I'm quite sure they are all for sale only, and with 3.5k per month it isn't enough here I'm afraid. For that price you need to find a much smaller apsrtment building.

New York by Gehry offers an studio apartment for $2,900 plus utilities. I´d afford more than that but considering a very expensive school (Parsons) i dont´wanna throw my money away like that on an expensive building I think I´m gonna go for Hoboken, NJ. There are some cute Apt. Buildings there way less expensive. Park Avenue is actually expensive through and through.

Wow it's looking beautiful - and their site, while hard to read, is amazingly presented with the melding of photos, renders, and life-life shots. Very cool. Going to love this as it gets higher!

i would be willing to bet that this concrete gets an acid wash or something similar before glass is installed to really clean it up.

so what we are looking at is probably not even the final product.

Thanks for the closeup shots 600W.

So, I've got a techie question that's been bugging me for some time now.

I drew a simplified side view of the scaffolding below. This is how I imagine it looks. I get how the vertical load is supported, but what keeps this scaffolding from falling away from the building??

Hopefully somebody who knows how this system works can answer my question. THANKS!

I don't think they use bolts for that, it would deface the concrete. I guess they are hooked behind the columns.

Typically there are brackets on the other side (the interior side) of the window opening, as well. Basically the grip is a large vise clamped onto the building. In this case they might be bracketed against the wall, instead.

Thanks, I thought it might be a clamping kind of thing, I just couldn't see anything like that.

Rebar being installed to support floor 7. I believe a poster on here that is affiliated with the project mentioned that they should enter the 4 day cycle phase after floor 7 signifying the transitional element on the 57th street side is complete and ready to enter the cycle. I think he even mentioned that near the top it may even enter a 3 day cycle, but time will tell on that part.

Oh my, on the Park Ave cam I just saw a rebar cage for a perimeter column to fall down into the pit. It was about to be installed on a perimeter column and it just fell right down there

April Fool's Joke?

Although with the recent events around this building I wouldn't be too surprised
