This tower seems to need a lot of steel work on each floor, i have no clue how fast they can do this and encase it with formworks and do the pouring. Maybe someone can enlighten me. But idk, i would say they will not be able to do 2 floors a week speed or so.

I hope someone camn give me/us information about the process of construction here.

It dependes on the method of construction. If they install a clymbing formwork system, they will be able to build it faster. It would possible for them to build 2 floors per week, but not probable. For comparison, in 432 Park, they did build two floors during some weeks, but the average was more about 1,5 floors per week, during the period they were building it faster.

If they install the formwork manually, would be a bit slower, but even so, they are clearing the surrounding buildings,having less constrains now and they could build it faster than before.

Also, the pace of construction varies. The lower floors have bigger structural elements, meaning more concrete and reinforcement steel, meaning more time to build each floor. Also it is still winter that also causes a slower construction rate.

I think that by march, they could reach abut a floor every one and half weeks. A rate that should accelerate as they progress with construction, maybe reaching 1,5 floors a week as 432 Park did.

If you want to get technical, the core is the entire building in this case. As it rises, the tower almost becomes smaller than its own core, which is quite remarkable.

Thomas Koloski on Yimby delivered another really nice rendering of NY's Billionaire Row (57th St). Everything here is U/C and it's also missing a few that are U/C right now

It took an aerial to help orient the construction photo, in which north is to the left, and 57th Street to the right.

That worker in the gray sweatshirt at the top of the photo is standing right near the "slot" through which photos have been taken of the tower from 6th Avenue between 57th and 58th streets.





Here is an aerial view, with north to the left. Focus on the building at top, a bit left of center, with the windows added at the top. You can see it in the construction photo at the top left corner.



The northern part of the tower will protrude up through the roof of the Steinway building deep in the alley, as seen from 57th street.

Can someone explain how they attach those steel elements to the concrete of the floorplate?!

Yeah and it starts to have the towering effect now.

This project is extra amazing, because it went from a normal 750feet tower to this magnificant masterpiece that they are currently erecting.

Hopefully the 750feet design will be used for another project, because i really liked it.

I still can´t believe that such a thin building will be able to be so tall.
