Sick:Even with new camera positioning...when it hits the top of the frame it's only half way to the top.

Much better than the 57th street cam however. From a far vantage point, we'll be able to clearly see the tower rise without having to succumb to extreme foreshortening.

I notice this tower is right next to other buildings (with no space between them) is it possible these other buildings to be demolished and then erect taller towers blocking the 432pa windows?

I made this gif with a span of a month of construction, from august 20th until today, september 17th (including today's core jump)

In that period, the building has grown 6 stories, begining to count from august 15th (being that the jump zero, with august 20th as jump one) has been 33 days, or one story every 5,5 calendar days. (notice that when I calculate the last average, it was one floor every 5,5 days, now it is a lower average because the long labor-day holiday has been diluted in a longer period of time)

Counting only the working days, it has been 25 days, meaning they are, on average, in a 4.17-day cycle.

If they keep the approximate 4-day cycle and do another jump the next saturday, the average will further lower to a floor every 5,27 calendar days and one every 4,14 working days.

Right now, they are already pouring columns on the south side.

Cool, so another jump. This means the building has currently 34 apparent floors and so is 161 meters or 527 feet tall

Roof height used below

Looks like it's close to getting to half its height, but I heard it was only 1/3.

Holy shit, really? That's some mind-blowing perspective.

If the cam is on Bloomberg's roof, then the building will be 57% completed when it's even with the cam. If the cam is on the antenna, then the tower will reach the cam's elevation when the tower is 67% completed.

That's some fast and amazing progress. It feels like yesterday where we were debating on the tower inching past the Franklin Building. Now we're suddenly 6 floors or 8 or so in core past that.

The developer and others are smart people... just let the building be the star. No need for front-and-center marketing on the banner. While I'm sure there's a strong (private) marketing campaign behind this tower, I wouldn't be surprised if it's entirely sold since construction continues without any issue. I just mean for the average every day New Yorker, it appears that there's no glitz, Hollywood-approved star, TV commercial, etc. promoting this tower or so it seems.

Sorry if I'm wrong but I'm not in NYC. But then again this is just a luxury residential building. It naturally won't have the worldwide focus that a 1WTC has. Nothing wrong with that!

It's not in a location I'd like to be though. I'd much prefer 225 w 57th to be near the park, the upper west side and a good subway station. (Yes, even billionaires sometimes ride the subway in New York.)

Actually, it is less than 1/3 of its total height. On the SSP forum, post number 4497, there is an elevation and section drawing, that I saved to my computer. I was able to print the section image at my office on a 24x36 sheet. Using a caliper, I measured from the sidewalk level to the last completed poured floor (30 window spaces, 26 actual floors. I am not including the current floor formwork), then move the caliper up so the bottom needle on the caliper was positioned on the last completed floor for the second measurement. The top needle rested on the 54th floor (58 window spaces), then repeated it for the third measurement. The top needle then rested on the 82nd floor (86 window spaces). There were six window spaces to the top of the building left above the third caliper measurement.

One thing is for sure: this will be very glassy when the covering is removed from. All of those windows.

So there are 30 apparent floors (window spaces) that are complete, 2 apparent floors as completed core and additional 2 apparent floors of core being poured behind the forms, right?

Kanto,

I am only counting the floors, irrespective of the core. When I did my first measurement, from grade (sidewalk) as I detailed in my post, I counted only the completed poured floor slabs to date, minus the floor slab currently being formed and rebar being placed. I have not included the core, or the future floors that the core would represent, nor the internal floor slabs within the core.

Also note, unfortunately, that once again, the important 59 St. cam is down again.
