Sorry I haven't been online in the past week or so to give updates. I've been getting about 6 hours of sleep every night and am loaded down in school right now. It might be a while.

Anyhow, for those of you who couldn't tell by t94's photo, forms were recently raised. Expect the core to jump tomorrow or Thursday.

I think that a lot of members of the public are going to be surprised when the height of this building just keeps going up, and up, and up.

While the design appears at first glance kind of plain, 432 Park will really stand out with its slim, graceful bearing. Adding not too far away the Tower Verre,(what will its official name be, btw?) 11 W57th and 225 W57th with the possibility of other soaring neighbors quite a sight to behold in the Central Park vicinity.

things seem like they are back up to speed now so the building should be rising quickly again...they are back to pouring everyday

One really has to strain the neck to see look at the top from the street

56th Street cam has been readjusted slightly. If you look to the Park Avenue area of the lot where the pit was, you can see big steel beams in place there now. That's the place to watch in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, the core did not jump today, and it doesn't look like it will tomorrow. I forgot we're still on the MEP floors.

So it has 39 apparent floors currently. I made my last diagram with only 38 so I will update it tomorrow to reflect this newest information

Great photos.

But please tell me the crane crew's tools (in particular their sledge hammers) are attached by lanyard to something? They also have no chin straps on their hard hats??

Good points.

I'm wondering if these potential safety violations are allowable because they were working over the mass of the tower so if something fell it would fall on the tower a few floors below rather than to street level. Just a guess on my part but good observations

I was a construction worker part time in college. When ever we were hammering from a certain height, we took proper precatuion bu clearing out the space below us. However, my hammer was never attached to a lanyard or anything. I was working in Tampa, so the danger wasn't too high, I guess in New York they have coverings on all the pedestrian areas.

Now with the skyline in the background, those black and white photos really make sense. It takes me back to Empire State Building era.

It looks like 1WTC is trying to photobomb the one of ESB and the tops of a few modernist buildings.

Those steel columns rising from the 56/Park pit are now above street level so clearly the retail structure on that corner will not be an ALL glass box like Harry did for the Apple store/GM building

Looks like the rest of the base for the "apple store" cornering Park Avenue is being put in. Visible on the far right of the photo.

As was promised, I corrected my diagram after learning that the building currently has 39 apparent floors and not just 38 apparent floors as we used to think. This means that the building is currently 184 meters or 605 feet tall

Roof height used below

Yes, but if he must convert his original photos from color to black & white, I wish he'd at least make better use of lighting when taking the photos so they'd have better contrast and shadows, as good black & white photography should. Otherwise I'd rather see them in color.
