It'll start breaking through the Midtown plateau in about 60 metres or 200 feet.

Some pictures from this afternoon. Definitely this thing is starting to make its presence on the New York skyline felt.

57th street a few blocks to the east of the building. Now that it cleared the "black" building on Park Avenue it stands out.

Even further east.

From the north east corner of Park and 57th Street.

The advertising is new since the last time I was by the site.

Even though it was a Sunday work was taking place at the site as the elevators were moving.

Interesting how almost all the windows are in but then there are floors with no windows. Not sure what that is about.

The elevators and cranes make this structure look bigger than it is. Once they are gone we will be able to see clearly its slenderness.

I don't know if it can be seen in this picture but a number of the "windows" were actually black grated vents.

Looking east from 56th and 5th. The left most building is Trump Tower and after that the IBM building. 432 is definitely starting to stand out.

No, you are wrong...
That will happen at 17:32:50, the date, I don't know, but I am pretty sure it will happen at that time.

If you took this picture in a year from now, I think the building will get off the frame.

Uhmm, we'll have to see. I believe it's not tall enough to get out the frame. Frame probably goes to 1,500'.

With such a simple design, the finishing is absolutely key for this building. And they've nailed it. The concrete is so smooth. Is it weird that the first thing I think of when I look at this under construction is 'jesus h christ that concrete is smooth'?

This building is like a textbook example of materials being as important as design.

We'll see indeed. It should be or near topped out in a year I guess?

If we go 1 floor per week, then it'll be topped out in a year.

Yup, I expect a top out in fall 2014. That should leave them with enough time to finish the interior for a 2015 openning
