So this seems to be almost topped out, shouldn't it get narrower at the top because of the crown?, has the design changed recently or something?

It is getting narrower, but the protective barriers have to stay that size the fit the floor they're mounted to. If you look through the meshy yellow area you can see that the formworks are narrower up top.

This might be a dumb question but does anyone know what the south side of the building is made of, the part that's all light gray? Is it made of concrete or like some giant plastic covering?

The large grey surface on the south side is just bare concrete, which will eventually be covered up with the limestone and faux windows.

Hi everybody,
I have a question which I'm sure there's an answer to somewhere in the thread but since I'm new to this thread (and too lazy to search) I'll ask it. What's the purpose of the concrete walls? Couldn't there be more windows on the side?
Again, sorry to bother if the question is stupid.

Cheers

Oh god, that's definitely a way to open up a can of worms on this thread. Long story short, given the thin profile, ultra high value of Central Park views, and the fact that most of the South-facing views would be obscured by Central Park Tower, the developers opted to shift almost all the usable floor space to the CP-facing North side. The blank wall is just the Southern side of the elevator core.

There's been a lot of debate about the merits of using fake windows on the South facade treatment, but I think we all agree it's a much better solution than a 950 foot blank wall.

^ Yeah basically its mechanical space but for obvious aesthetic reasons they want it to appear as windows. Very smart move on the developer and architect move.

It's something nobody will even notice once the building is finished. They'll just look like windows from the outside.

It does illustrate the engineering involved in constructing a building so thin for its height. The core is part of the exterior wall... pretty interesting in that regard.

That is a shear wall. With such a narrow tower, it needs to resist horizontal movement. Otherwise, they could have had glass elevators, although they would conflict with a classic Stern design. This is a floor plan of the 50th floor (which will have a single 4 floor unit on 50-53) which shows the main elevator lobby. The elevators and service core are not shown at the bottom.
