That has to be some sort of record. They went up in about 3-4 months! Great progress!

Not really quite as fast, this is how it was by the end of august, already some stories high, so it was more like 5-6 months, but still pretty fast for a pair of 30+ story towers...

Ground was broken by the first days of march BTW. 10 months from breaking ground to topping out.

Here you can see the completed school, and next to it the residential building in site A which is already 4 stories high.

I pass by this one yesterday and thought I would see some sort of work on the facade. I saw nothing; The towers have been topped for over a month! What's the deal here?

Fight With Window Contractor Slows Progress At Hunters Point South



Quote:
The first two affordable housing towers at Long Island City megaproject Hunter's Point South were rising rather nicely as of October 2013, but that progress screeched to a halt as the developers entered into a six-month-long scuffle with a contractor, specifically, the Florida company set to provide $13 million worth of windows for the two buildings' 925 units. Per the Wall Street Journal, the first panes that arrived last week were long overdue, with delivery previously scheduled for September. One tower was ready to get glassed in as of October, and the other in January. And don't think area residents haven't taken note of the arrested development—back in February, a savvy tipster wrote in with some observations about the stalled towers.

The tipster speculated:

Quote:
It is unclear if Related/Monadnock forgot to order windows, if the window contractor went bankrupt, or if the windows didn't fit on the building because of some design error on the part of the architect (SHoP). The superstructure is completed, but they removed the construction cranes until window installation is ready. Without windows, no work can be done on the interior. Either way this is very costly and embarrassing for Related and means that the completion of much-needed affordable housing is delayed. ... This would never happen if Related was developing luxury condos here. Serves them right for trying to do too much... like expanding into professional sports franchises. ...visit the site, you wont see any activity. Atypical for a large project to stall considering the construction loan interest is accumulating.
According to the WSJ, a spokeswoman for the developers described the kerfuffle as "an unavoidable delay of the delivery of the windows from an outside vendor," while that outside vendor retorted that "$7 million or $8 million of windows had been ready for months but the development partnership has tried to renegotiate the contract and refused to pay for them." Whoever is right here, the dispute is expected to get settled this week.
