Wow, 18" slabs in upper half of building to damp swaying from wind! That'll be some serious sound damping as well.

I closed the other thread. This thread will be moved to the Supertalls forum once we have an official or more detailed confirmation/evidence it's U/C.

haha i think you just deleted it when i was looking at the thread. i switched to another page and it told me i couldn't access the page and i was like "was i just banned?" and then couldn't find the page again haha.

but back on topic, i am really excited how this building will turn out i can imagine that it may rise rather quick.

So given the current fiasco over One World Trade Center, this will be the tallest building in USA.

Well atleast, its being build by private owners rather than those idiots at the Port Authority who have manged to totally muck up One World Trade Center rebuilding plans.

And not only that, by 2014, this building will be taller than One World Trade Center.

Their position seems to be about correct...It will be interesting to see what happens in those locations over the next two weeks.

Did I call this or what? Big columns of rebar going up!
If this is not U/C I do not know what is.

Most of the retaining walls now finished they are probably doing the columns in conjunction with side retaining walls as the column footings will butt right up against the adjoining townhouses...so it makes sense to do it all at once...looks a bit of a mess but this hole is very deep...I took a look this morning and my guess is base of footings are about 75' down...they are taking advantage of the ramp to get things started...they will need to excavate the ramp to do them all...but look for the left and right sides to go up first. Once they get footings and a main slab down they will need to erect the main construction crane before final excavation of the ramp.
Can't wait to see permanent construction crane go up. U/C!!! U/C!!! U/C!!! Take up the chant!

It's official the 432 Park Avenue has began the construction to be 1398 feet tall, then I say


I the "crazy swede" is more crazy now

Terrific news and my love for New York grew even more today.
Congratulation for another SUPERTALL skyscraper born in New York.

NEW YORK = the city that RULES the whole world. AMEN

The site is muddy, the trucks couldn't even ride onto the slope without help of excavators.

Looks like they aren't wasting any time, seeing that area all cleaned up in 1 day and lots of rebar already.

I have a feeling this will go up rather quickly.. maybe even quicker than one57.

I don't think it's thin at all. Just big super big windows that give the illusion. Also, it reminds me of Sears' top/upper section. Curious..anyone have widthXdepth dimensions of Willis'/Sears' top/upper-section, to compare to the widthXdepth to 432park? I am really curious how these 2 compare.

Also can't wait to see more and better renders ...not many high quality renders out yet.

Ahh..found it.

432park = 93x93'
Sears Willis (comprised of 9 75' squares from base, to 2 75' squares to roof) = 75x150' (= 2 of those 75' squares)
1WTC = 200x200'

This being said... I really don't think this will be that thin at all and will have a similar beefy impact to the skyline.. It's about half the dimensions of 1WTC at it's base (anyone know 1WTC's dimension on the roof???) and close to the sq-footage of Willis'/Sears upper-section.. (432park/8,649 vs. Sears/11,250).
