Only three. The other three guys in black uniform will just watch and see as the other three erect the building -- at least how it goes in most construction sites.

Residents in the new supertalls probably would have the right answer to the question of . Holden caulfield in " the catcher in the rye" Where the ducks go when the lagoon in central park get icy and frozen over in the winter. Lol

Nice video. It's like I'm there again... (watching from 55'' flat screen and headphones on)
There's that same construction worker at 1:20 (that banana guy) who gave me the permission to take the photos over the fence (couple days before I got denied by a security guard). He (the banana guy not the guard) is in one of my photos too... Great guy.

There's only at most 6 guys working on this, so it isn't moving very fast...

Definitely a step up from the lone wolf working on the site last year. Maybe by next year, we'll double that personnel count by 12.

Seriously though, when this baby shoots up, it will do so very fast given how slender it is. 432 Park went up fairly quick but I feel like this will rise even quicker.

I doubt that it's clever to pour a floor, while pouring the walls at the same time.
They had to put some pressure at the floor from the top, so the concrete from the walls don't flood out of it's formwork.

But, if all vertical elements are aleredy poured, it should be possible to poure more than one flooreplate at the same time. I think it's also possible to poure vertical elements, that reach higher than one level.

I have found this interesting article about how to reduce skyscraper sway in tall and thin buildings. The graphic is for the Tower at 111 West 57th Street.

Aside from the tall crane...anything happening here?
Between them digging down from street level to two stories deep, 50 West started, went up and then topped out....
Is it still the one guy doing it...?

Looks barely wide enough to accomodate a staircase... let alone an elevator. I'd hate to be in the top floors in an emergency.

Without that, this tower wouldn't be possible.
