A couple weeks ago, I thought I saw the perimeter forms rise on a Wednesday morning, and then again on the following Monday. That is fast! But that was in favorable weather conditions. It is 20 degrees F. right now. I would rather call in sick than go way up there and handle cold rebar.

A 223m tower is really average. It's not impressive, but also not unimpressive.

That depends on where you put it.

Dubai, yes.

Milan, LOL.

Tokyo: the tallest building is the Toranomon Hills (since the Skytree is not a building). It is 256 m. A 233 m tower would be in the top 10 together with the Shinjuku Center which is 223 m. So while not being the tallest, it would be still very noticeable and would change the skyline. So no, Tokyo is not one of the cities that belong in this conversation.

20 degrees isn't that bad. High of -10 F tomorrow in Wisconsin. The work is probably slow due to the construction of apparent mechanical floors.

Well, do they have superslim supertall projects in Wisconsin?

Anyway, I wonder how fast construction is going right now. Is it still about 2 floors per week? I hope construction speeds up when the temperature gets higher in New York. It is so cold here!

I think most of the glass that is supposed to be on the tower at this stage of construction is there, but is covered by red netting. I wonder how strange it'll be when all of the glass is uncovered, because this "red glass" is really growing on me.

I think you are mistaken. The Orange netting is safety netting so workers don't fall out of the window openings. There are no windows where the netting is. The windows are the squares on the bottom half that are covered with white protective material.

No, the red netting is over the empty frames without glass. There's really no reason for safety netting once the glass is in place.

EDIT: Beat me to it.

This steel work was smaller than I expected.

Looks like it is for HVAC. Strange that this building has a Park Ave address yet what is actually on Park is their utility junk.

The building is still very underwhelming and doesn't stand out from the other buildings around it. The concrete is dirty and grey. All told it just looks like a regular and not particularly nice building. When people see you taking pictures of it they think you're an idiot. I think once it hits 1,000 feet it will start to impress and that will change. Maybe by May?
