You over think so many posts! Though he did say "any" it's obvious he meant any skyscraper city.

As reported by curbed:

The massive Mercedes showroom near the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel is not long for this world. A tipster sent a picture of the brutish building .. in the midsts of its demolition.




Yimby also has more details.

This one's gonna look huge just cause of it's location. Even with the Hudson Yards rising nearby this is will stand out.

How can 106 floors fit into a 335m tall building? That sounds weird to me.

This tower won't offer luxury apartments, hence the low ceiling. You can't compare this project to the 57th street supertalls, where several 400m+ towers to the roof have a low floor count.


PS: floor count and height are not final.

Floor count does not have a direct affect on height. It's all about the height of the floors, not how many there are.

Isn't that a pile driver? we just need visual confirmation that it's working and this tower can be considered U/C!

I think it's a Bauer driller. Piling is coming soon!

Just probing the ground right now? I agree that piling will come soon.

Demo looks done. Perhaps the title should be changed to "Prep".

IMO not quite yet, to the east of the property there are still about 4 floors to be demolished and on the west side it seems that the machinery is still working on removing debris rather than pilling or digging.

For some odd reason I'm more excited to see this go up more than anything. The density of this tower will be astounding.

Yes, it will be nice to see a supertall go up in NY that won't be ultra-luxury housing.
