Yeah this project is pretty great. A great 700 feet addition to New York should be all over.

People have posted more about this project on another site (SSP).

It is an amazing building, thin and tall ... Is still in a very good place. So when win more floors, will draw more attention.

They wrap the building in scaffolding and then slowly take the building down floor by floor...

Here is an example of that in Seattle where they are taking down a highrise that was only a few years old because of faulty construction http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1108785&page=7

Thanks for the updates again! Love to see this slender tower going up! Yet another 200m+ tower for NYC, there are now 52 of such towers completed and NYC is speeding up to get over 100 of them!

It's going to be quite impressive when complete. I'd guess there are another 10-15 floors before the next setback... beyond that, I wonder how fast it's going to rise given how tiny the floor plates are going to be? (already so small, and it's rising at least 2-3 floors/week)
