I'm amazed that you can get 2 eggs, potatoes and toast for 99c. Is this common in NYC?

Stunning? Come on....

This tower is awful. Exposed floor plates, no balance, over hanging balconies, and so close to the ESB. And that practically blank wall, I don't want to even think about what that will look like.

This is not one that I, a New Yorker, am bragging about. I hate it.

I don't like this one at all.....out of place, so close to our baby ESB....what a shame.
Usually a blank wall means that a future scaper will almost join it on that side, unless 325's blank wall will either be tiled of painted.

Usually that is the case. BTW Loving the the semi-cirular features atop of the original renders posted on page 1 of this thread.

I know it's because another skyscraper might rise there, but why not clad it in the same junk thats on the rest of it, still with no windows?

I'll tell you why, this building is sooo cheap, yet the condos are soo expensive. I would want more for my money

I just cannot believe this! How fast do they construct in NY? This project was at ground level in August 05, and within 2 1/2 months, its almost ready. This gives us a ratio of almost 4.5 floor a week!!!!!

Time = $$.
The quicker it goes up, the sooner they get paid.

BTW, can concrete even dry that fast?

Yeah concrete can become rigid within four hours, it all depends on the type of concrete. If they really want it to set fast they can put in admixtures that accelerate the setting. Concrete however takes forever to fully cure and can take months to reach its maximum strength.
