Does anybody have an estimate about how tall the building is now?

Damn for some reason I thought the core in these buildings was solid concrete, guess I never really thought about it,but if it's actually hollow they can nicely utilize that space, what will "that" space be used for in a residential type building? As opposed to an office or multi-purpose scrapers like 1WTC or Shanghai Tower? In that case would the core be used for elevators and such?

Very interesting that Harry Macklowe isn't even the owner of the building. I think we all thought he was. Good thing this other company was willing to continue with the project.

Elevators, fire escapes, pipes, wires, etc.

So, here you have another one.
Thanks CC.

The hoists (external elevators) they're using aren't Doka. I don't think they're Alimaks (Alimak Hek) either.

The contractor or formwork subcontractor are using a material hoist dedicated for formwork stripping from trailing floors and placing to new floors above. Its installed a few floors below the new floors for exclusive use, allowing the other hoists on 56th street for services installation and internal fitout.

Does anyone know how this building is going to be lit up at night? Obviously it is one of the most unique supertalls in the world and I would be shocked if the owners did not have something very special in store for all of us!

The renders show the mechanical floors being lit.

Residential developers don't like too much lighting since they have rich occupants who wouldn't hesitate to call a lawyer if lighting affected one night's sleep. Office towers usually get the big lighting jobs since those buildings aren't occupied at night. As noted above, mechanical floors and maybe something along the roof will be in store here.

I would be shocked. In addition to what dp inferred about residential towers everything else about this building is very understated. The concept of adding anything flashy at this point would be counterintuitive and result in something rather tacky, kind of like the costume crowns atop the slender towers of Dubai. Thus I suspect the lighting to be as minimalist as the building itself.

Tons of action going on today, fellas! Two concrete trucks have arrived on the 56th Street side. Perimeter is being poured at the moment. The core is packed with tons of workers up top as well as the perimeter. It's going to be another great day in New York!

Core or Perimeter?

I want to say 32 for core and 30 for perimeter.

the last time the core jumped was 5 days ago, will we see a core pour today at least? or is the weather holding it back?

Yeah, there's been some bad weather recently. Expect the core to jump tomorrow.
