He's the one taking the pictures. DUN DUN DUNNN!

It's like if Wes Craven suddenly started making incredibly dull, procedural movies about the tedium of skyscraper construction.

This building is financed, yes?
If so, I wonder why they're clowning around with almost no workers and zero progress. Maybe the extreme slenderness of it is causing some engineering issues that need to be resolved before they can start...? Are people still moving out from the to be demolished portion of the site?

They're making progress, but most of the initial work is in the adjacent building, which will be preserved. The adjacent building needs some prep work before the tower is built next-to and above the existing building.

Thanks. That makes sense.

1,400'+? I think it's just sloppy reporting.

It's as-of-right. There are no special approvals required, they just have to follow the rules.

The excavator has been removed and replaced with a much smaller one, a Bobcat skid-steer.

I think excavation is complete. Next step will be demoing the facade of the building behind. But yeah, wish there was more visible progress here...

So once this bad boy breaks street level how long are they expecting it to take before it's topped off? Couldn't take more than what.. Nine months?

maybe this building gets soo thin at the top and seeing the pace of 432 park this would probably go up in that time

Speed also depends heavily on the construction materials. Concrete or steel?
