They use diagonal rebar to spread the load.

I'm confused.
Why not, the new forms were just placed.

I'm glad the building across the street on the 57th street is fairly tall. Hopefully they can raise the camera level to level for a while so we can get a solid view of the action for some time.

My God, do other bldg's use this amount of rebar? Seems like the most I've ever seen on any highrise?

I really don't like the look of this building. I think because it's so tall, if it was smaller I think it would look better.

One Madison Park is a good example of how to make tall slim, rectangle buildings look attractive:

Yeah right? Let's build another 700 - 800 footer which will simply disappear in the Midtown plateau.
432 PA is not the only tower coming to 57th street. Several supertalls are under construction or in the planning phase.

seems they are doing this work out of sequence to allow time for the cranes to tie in.

columns before core so they dont twoblock themselves.

On which floor is the pool supposed to be? That will be a double floor, correct?

What's the other name one can use to refer to that area? (I know some don't like the name "Flatiron District")

I agree 100% with this...it is unbelievable to see this structure from the sidewalk...the scale just does not come across in the cameras. The columns are MASSIVE,the photos really only show their profile but when you walk by and and see them fully three dimensionally the structure has a massiveness that is truly MONUMENTAL. It absolutely does have an ancient quality to it in that it relates to the massiveness of stone constructed structures...those of you who are knowledgeable in the history of architecture will know what I mean. It has to do with the proportion of the columns to the span between them....the proportion here has more relation to that of stone structures then Reinforced concrete or steel...I have never seen a modern building like this...it has a timeless quality to it.
If you are not from NYC if you ever get here you have got to come see this building

They did not pour the core yesterday...pouring today...so we are still on a 14 day cycle...

The only thing ugly about the concrete is those "stretch marks" that run perpendicular to the vertical column. They don't even seem to be visible on the upper floors. I think the concrete is finely done and a nice variation in the usual steel lattice method they use to construct buildings.

Huh? I like going to visit this site specifically because the concrete is so spectacular.

To each their own I guess.

I've never seen better looking concrete than what I see here. This building proves over and over again that if simplicity is done with skill and quality it can produce an incredible masterpiece of architecture

I'll wait till its way up there in the sky to voice my opinion. It looks great as of now to me. I hope it's the same color as snow. I want the same white that Don Johnson wore during Miami Vice

I think its rather nice especially if it gives sort of a limestone look to it. It would have been nice if they actually could have used limestone at least for the base of this building.
