What's with all the rust? Or is it a brown paint for quick 'n easy identification to the sturctural engineers and construction workers?

Couldn't be, surely! We' like to think not LOL. More than likely the latter. It's just that apart from being on main joints and beam edges, some of it looks sprayed on randomly.

With the surface rust option (maybe from pre-storage), any engineering scientists or metallurgists out there, budding ones even? If it is surface rust, would it be ground down and then the metal below treated so as not to affect the superstructure of the building in years to come?

Sorry, but I'm really curious about this.

It's rust. You do not want the connections to have a smooth surface; therefore, they are purposefully left untreated. Friction, particularly at bracing connections is key to transfer cyclic loading. The bolts for the connection will be what we call "slip critical" and squeeze the two members together. The load is transfered only by friction. The bolts will not transfer the load like a bearing connection.

BOFA HAS BIG PLANS IN N.Y.

By STEVE CUOZZO
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
November 15, 2005 -- BANK of America is one of the city's largest commercial users with roughly 2 million square feet in Midtown. As the bank pursues its strategy to grow and relocate big-time over the next few years, it's on the prowl for more space even before it sets up shop at One Bryant Park.

In early 2009, BofA will move out of 900,000 square feet at Sheldon Solow's 9 W. 57th St. and into 1.1 million feet at One Bryant Park, the skyscraper Douglas Durst is building in a joint venture with the bank at Sixth Avenue and 42nd Street.

But BofA has expanded rapidly since it acquired Fleet Financial in 2004. It will need even more space when its lease at 9 W. 57th expires at the end of 2008 and likely before that.

The bank intends to stay in Midtown, and sources say it's considering taking even more space at One Bryant Park — up to 400,000 additional feet.

If that happens, BofA might pay higher than $100 a square foot, which Durst is asking for the tower's as-yet unleased top half. But since the bank is Durst's partner, it would be on the receiving end of the uber-rent, too.

Meanwhile, sources say BofA is looking at taking space sooner than that in the former Verizon building at 1095 Sixth Ave., where Equity Office will have more than 1 million square feet available next year. It's also looking at a chunk at 1166 Sixth Ave.

BofA's broker, Jones Lang LaSalle honcho Peter Riguardi, could not be reached.

I'll tell you what, of everything going up worldwide,i'm watching this one very close. This tower should have one of the most interesting structural systems to date.! My god, look at the size of the stress/sheer panels in the core area, and the diagonal braces, but the best thing is that its all iron, i'm sorry, but there is nothing better than watching iron framing in the process of erection, sparks flying, the sound of sledge hammers banging it into position to set drift pins, ( I hope its American iron!!)
And again, thanks Carlos for the wonderful shots, you are the photo god on site.

Not much has changed since last photos. The steel you see are for the theatre portion, which won't go higher than several floors. The tower portion has yet to rise.
