Clearly not yet. Just excavation.

That's what happens when you build lot line windows in Manhattan...

which, by most people's standards, is considered construction.

Maybe so (I would even agree with you personally), but it's not how this forum works

On the other hand you can ask yourself how much of the actual building would have been constructed if they stopped working now

The courtyard windows will be, yes, but as you can see below, SHoP has done a really admirable job of deferring to the front part of Steinway. So quite a few windows that might otherwise have been covered will still have a view outside (or more accurately, into 111's lobby).

In fact, they're not only opening up 111's lobby space in deference to Steinway, they're actually restoring a bunch of the old building, including the surfaces that used to abut against its old neighbor. Considering they're under no obligation to do so, JDS and SHoP really showed some class here.

Not related to this tower but didn't know where else to post this. Spotted it in Shop's Instagram, was wondering if it's one of their proposals to come or if they're just playing around.

Hopefully, it's one of their new NY towers. I'd like to see that at 80 South St. Or the Seaport. That facade is very similar to ShoP's prior Seaport proposal.

agreed but I think the floor plates would be too large for that site. Could be the Cherry st site or the Junior site or some unknown development..or it could be in another city.

that would be interesting! For Howard Hughes to build this for 80 South, I would think they would have to acquire or partner up with the adjacent lot, 151 Maiden Lane to be able to build those 2 towers.
