for sure. If it is 293 meter right now, it will take 2 floors to get there.

But remember we have reached the mechanical floors which normally seem to take 2+ weeks per floor; but even so it's not long at all until we reach supertall status!
Why do they take so long though?

Not sure if the core will also take more time.

It's among the boys now, and about to overtake them

Inequality exists because some strive harder and demand more for themselves than others. Without it, there would be 0 towers / apartments of the like.

I say let it go, enjoy the rise, and wish all who live there the best. BTW, I walked by it last week; massive.

Hoo boy. No, not the whole picture in the slightest. You're opening a can of worms with that one.

Not sure if anyone else has noticed this as the cameras do not show what is going on 57St...Another milestone has been reached as the 6 story retail building facing 57 street is now being erected...the two corner vertical columns are now in place and they were unloading a large load of columns this morning...the lowered tower crane on 57 is now dedicated to this phase.

A slight digression, but the Moorish building above looks an awful lot like the Neue Synagogue in Berlin.

Everyone talks about how thin this tower is (and I know its height:width ratio is insane), but it doesn't look at all out of place in NY's skyline. In fact, from certain angles, it looks thicker than One57. Love it or hate it, this will become one of New York's landmark towers.

If they stopped construction today, yes. But it still has a long way to go. It will look extremely skinny once it's done.

It will be thin but not delicate at all. The building really has a massive presence from the street...a monumentality that is not like anything else in New York

It's the monumentality which i really dig, almost Roman classic in it's own 2014 and yet timeless way.

Yeah let's not go there. Let's all suffice it to say that some people already are pointing to these towers as symbols of a very different economy than the one that brought us the great towers of the past. I myself just try to enjoy them solely on their aesthetic and engineering merits, but it's a thought that's hard to keep completely out of your mind.

Fortunately for future residents, the proles can only throw their bricks so high.

Meh. NYC in its history has always been a struggle between the rich and poor. Nothing new.

Construction Update: 432 Park Avenue
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/05/cons...enue-may.html#

Quote:
as of today’s update, the core stands 961 feet above street level, while the perimeter forms are 930 feet tall.
Nice! 930 ft will be the height for the rapidly rising 30 Park Place.

I like the angle of view here: (from previous page)



It's like a new challenger rising to the arena...

You can imagine how well it will rival with them contemporary champions when it reaches it's ultimate height.

Not in real life. On Google Maps it doesn't even look like it has the domes on top: http://goo.gl/maps/J6AaU

From the perspective of that last photo it will probably appear to be at about the same level as that alien spacecraft to the right of ESB.

Yeah. This really is the only way to build skyscrapers... Make them insanely high ! And it doesn't hurt the big picture to make them skinny too...
