Cranes n action today. Looks as though they're placing perimeter rebar at the moment. 56th crane has 3 sections at its base right now, so it should jump next week if not today.

A new jump means a new diagram. The building has currently 35 apparent floors, which means it is 166 meters or 543 feet tall

Roof height used below

...which, as an architectural concept is actually sort of cool. But lordy would that be ugly in practice.
Well, they should do a non-stop pour than.

Maybe it's cool to add that it's currently the 160th tallest building in the city.
And just 5 meters short of Park Avenue Tower.

Yup, it's getting into the skyline. For now only from 6846546541's apartment (the SSC forumer who lives on the 57th, he has numbers as his name, doesn't he, and those are hard to remeber, so sorry plz ), but soon it'll get visible from the midtown's observation decks too. Will be awesome to finally see it from the ROck and ESB

Edit, his name is 57th&1st, sorry for the messed up name

My 2nd update after a long long time Based on kanto's calculation.
Due to some reasons I had to close my previous account and now I am here as _Forum_

I couldn't do the climbing system as it is too heavy to my immature cad knowledge... So, I have shown that part as the completed concrete core.

I don't have that option. The camera is in a fixed position for me. I can zoom in, but I can't zoom out wider.

The actual zoom level of the cameras are changed from time to time. That image with the wide shot was only in place for a few hours.

Last week, I had the 59th street camera open in an idle tab while I was viewing something else. I then clicked on the tab for the 59th street view and realized that the camera had been zoomed in so the top platform filled the entire screen. Lots of details were visible. Unfortunately, about 2 seconds later, the browser automatically updated the view to the current version, which was the view shown currently, or very close to it. Too bad I couldn't get a screencap when they had the camera zoomed in.

I think the Park Avenue camera is useless right now. They should zoom out and show the entire building with that camera. That would be nice to see. Then the 59th street camera could be zoomed in as far on the deck as is practical. The workers might not want to be observed in the sort of detail that I saw when the camera was zoomed in, but something a good bit closer than the current view would be a fair compromise.


Here is a smaller version of the model shared above by Forum, so we can see the building all at once:

If you look at it in bright sunlight, then probably yes.
