I'm guessing that after 5 or 6 more floors they'll pull the webcam shot out wider so you can see more of the skyline... specifically One57, which won't appear taller by that time.

I clicked on the link for the 56th Street camera at 6:57 AM, and there were already two cement trucks in place. Now it's 6:57 PM, and two trucks are still there. Pour-a-thon!

That's my favorite vantage point. I feel like it shows just how tall this building will be better than most other angles.
I'm new to the forums by the way. Hello everyone

How do they get the cement from the cement trucks to the top of the building?

They pump it up to the top by the use of pipes.

Indeed, pumps used in skyscraper pouring are really strong.


Btw, they really need to sent someone to fix the cams.

I was just wondering... How high is one floor, in feet or meters in this building ? I mean in all, including the intermediate floor...

too high, IMO. I think it should be max. 3.75m .

That explains,that this tower just have 89fl according to the hight.

Rich people don't want to feel cramped, that's one of the reasons they are so high.
