The big boxy office building in the centre foreground is looking as bland as ever (can't remember its name - a Federal building?). It's certainly not the architect's finest moment. It looks like a shorter version of any of those three lookalike and boringly anonymous additions to the Rockefeller Centre in the 70s of which Exxon was the tallest.

Kirkland and Ellis [at law] is the anchor tenant. They are moving from the Aon building east of town.

Sorry that took so long.

The steel erection at 41-43 is very challenging and may take some time to complete.

Watergate
I was told this is a "watergate" used to trap debris in the water comming into the building, it is installed veritcally in the intake.

A set of screens set up in a big chain.




(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
I didn't know these were available at Home Depot.



The intake vault

the best is yet to come, I guess (the crown).

it's a bit of a shame the facade doesn't look like in the rendering. or maybe someone should take a picture during sunset ...
