Oh gosh, it sure is. At this rate it will be easily completed within 1 1/2 years, at least externally....easily!

It doesn't have any major twists or turns in the tower component, nor fancy-shmancy over the top architectural features...just basically str8 up 'n down so the reconfigs will be kept to a minimum.

[QUOTE=hkskyline]Developer, plumbers' union propose test of waterless urinals
By DEBORAH YAO
4 April 2006

They actually have no flush unrinals in the bathrooms at Tompkins Sq Park in Manhattan. You can smell the bathroom from 500 feet away

Gross Idea. I dont know how smart this is in a skyscraper.

I dont think the tompkins ones were intentional. they just have no water and when you go, it just goes down the pipes

The steel has fallen behind lately because of bad weather. Insurance on-site doesn't cover workers slipping off a wet steel beam.

No, Scruffy, that's is literally the case. Walk by the site on a rainy day and check out all the ironworkers hanging out under the CIGNA Annex or by the Wawa across the street..
