I think they should let the current Park ave camera, so we can see the ground action, but add another one in a higher level. They should raise the 57th and 56th st. cameras aswell.

They also began to put new rebar cages for the columns.
What about a camera on top of One57??

Prior to this core jumps were 14-15 days..now 9 days so they are definitely accelerating.

I know it's not the most unique design but this for me is the most impressive tower being built anywhere in the world at the moment.

The impression it'll make on the skyline will be unbelievable.

This is the tower i'm keeping tabs on for it's entire build programme.

Absolutely amazing.

They could put a cam on the cranes - then they'll always have a good view.

Also, they could put a cam on the core form and aim it at the decking.

BTW, will they be putting up wind screens on this project or is the netting they have about it?

I updated my diagram. The building is currently 57 meters or 186 feet tall

Wow, this is already twice as tall as the tallest building in my city.

Absolutely not true if you live in Albany, New York. Where do you live

Because that would be too easy!

I could probably make this building using Maya in about 10 minutes, in fact I am going that right now
EDIT:
render:


It looks a little bit weird because the dimensions are off a little bit.

Double-height floor 7 has been formed, perimeter beam reinforcement has been placed on the east (Park Avenue), west (Madison Avenue), and south (E. 56 St) sides. Floor reinforcement continues to be placed, as well as column reinfocement for the next double-height floor level 8.

The 56 St. crane has just jumped again, with two additional tower sections placed. Workers below have completed tying together what I believe will be the beam reinforcement for the north (57 St) side. The blue spreader beam rests atop the completed beam reinforcement, awaiting being lifted. Since this needs to be raised above the just-raised core, the 56 St. crane had to be jumped for lift clearance for the beam reinforcement above the core.

Addition

Question: has anyone seen the 57 St (north) side beam reinforcement already placed? If so (and looking at the current scene, it probably has, since column rebar has already been placed, and typically, the beam reinforcement was usually installed before column rebar), perhaps someone saw it being placed. I was out of the country for a week, so I most likely missed it. Correct me if wrong.

Check 57 street cam NOW. Looks like they are jumping the 57th Street crane.

Yes they are also pouring the 57th columns and soon after that the floor slab I think.

They have the boom out (it is white) and guys crawling around down there. I think they are getting ready for it. Could be a false alarm but looks like it to me.

That beam reinforcement for the 57 St side was already placed, as evidenced by the pour that has been taking place today, and by the fact that one column rebar cage stands on the 57 St. side. As pouring continues, the 57St crane decided it was time to grow along with the building. Workers unbolt the slewing ring from the tower section it currently sits on, while a new tower section is in place on the trolley beam, waiting for the climbing frame, slewing ring and crane rises to allow it to be slid into position under the slewing ring of the crane. On the hook, hangs another tower section, and the crane has boomed out enough so the hanging weight balances the crane in a state of equilibrium before the climbing frame is raised.With the new section slid in place under the crane, workers bolt the new section atop the previous section.Judging from the sideways position of the tower section hanging from the hook, I am guessing that only one section may go in today on this crane. Two went in on the 56 St. crane today.

Jumped one cage and another is being lifted right now. I bet they tied that crane to the building too.
