By GreenwichBoy, they've started to remove the formworks on the SW corner of the base.

Seeing the 2009 photo raised a question with me. Are those the same two tower cranes that are there now? Did they repaint the "livery" or are they different cranes? They look the same except for the name on the sides.

It did rise, about a week ago new vertical steel was placed, and a few days later the cocoon system (that blue screen on top of the building) rose as well. Two days ago they placed another new steel beam, which increased the height.

Alas there is no 1500 footer in Midtown. That means NYC skyline sucks. It's amazing how Dubai, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Taipei must have "Greatest Skyline In The World", because some building is over 1500 feet. It's nice that these cities didn't have to invest in over 100 years of building skyscrapers between 100 and 1250 feet tall. If you want to do a battle of skyscrapers: stand at Rockefeller Center and look down 6th Avenue, left and right, then stand at some important intersection in Taipei or stand along Connaught Road or some 12 lane highway in Dubai named after a hotel chain. Tell me what you see. NYC may not have the tallest building in the world anymore, it hasn't since the early 70's, but it does have the densest selection of skyscrapers bar none. Yeah Shanghai has more buildings 12 stories or higher, yay!!!! go British Imperialists. I really don't even know how this is even a discussion on these forums, save for Chicago and what they have given and still give to the architecture of "skyscrapers".

In my opinion the appearance of a skyline has nothing to do with a single building which might be 1500 feet high... it does not matter - that is the reason why i dont like the skyline of taipei - however i like the taipei 101!
if i would compare skylines all over the world i would never say that dubai or shanghai has the best one because it does not look well. for me it is clear that new york, hong kong and chicago have the best skylines. even if they do not have as high buildings as dubai!

If you all want to discuss about skylines, lets open a thread about it. Meanwhile, stay on topic.

They were re-lettered when they were bought by DCM.

Remember the crane accidents back in 2008. Lomma/New York Crane has some legal issues stemming from that and was removed from the PA's list of approved sub-contractors.

Can anyone tell me if there is an observation point on a skyscraper in the downtown cluster like there is at Rockerfeller and ESB for the midtower cluster? Where's the best place to view the downtown skyscrapers?
