Based in the latest picture from ILNY , things actually seem to be moving along. If you look closely, you can see scaffolding has been installed on one of the buildings being demoed.
We might not be able to see all the demo action since most of it has probably been indoors till now, but once those buildings are down, I anticipate excavation to speed up considering there isn't much to excavate.

More than one. Transit frowns on drivers using their phones while driving.

What exactly would they have to show at this point? Demo?

They don't set up cams for skyscraper geeks, they set them up to sell condos. Nobody cares about demo and excavation except us.

I think we've been spoiled by the 432 Park cams, which were set up reeeeeally early, not to mention those fabulous black and white photos by Richard Berenholtz that documented just about every phase of construction. I wouldn't be surprised if 111 received similar treatment, but it is indeed very early in the process.

Potential buyers with pockets full of ca$h usually know nothing about build tech and some techniques used for construction in some parts of the world would only serve to repell not to attract them. I'm absolutely sure the real estate marketing and salesmans are anything but stupid, and often using not the most honest way to attract their potential buyers.

idk, there is a lot of new money these days, and a lot of it is young and technical. i have yet to see a properly set up building, tech-wise.
i suppose these buildings are mostly for getting money out of third world counties like russia and into something safe.

I'm pretty sure you're the first to complain about this design.

They were old fashion picketing this morning..(go union) . (something Parkside)
Then when I was back there this afternoon they were back installing the scaffolding that will cover the front of the Steinway building.
