I don't know if it's just because of the perspective, but those nuts and bolts look absolutely gigantic.

Judging from the spikes on it they'll still pour concrete around it.

PHP Code:
Judging from the spikes on it they'll still pour concrete around it. 
The "spikes" are actually known as headed studs.. The steel column shown here is comprised of plates welded together to create a solid column, the studs welded to the exterior are then embedded in the concrete that will encase the steel column, creating a composite column. These same studs are also welded at regular intervals on horizontal steel beams that are embedded in concrete that is poured on metal decking to create composite floor slabs, often seen in the construction of office buildings using structural steel framing.

Proof that you don't have to post a picture to add value to this forum. Thanks for the explanation, marcatio!

The non-picture posts tend to be a lot more valuable, especially when a lot of the pictures are just being taken from various social media feeds, or are one of 100000 other skyline shots already posted.

Photos Show Foundation Work Progressing at 53W53

Quote:
Since renderings were revealed nearly ten years ago, architecture fanatics have been eagerly awaiting construction of 53W53, a 77-storey supertall tower located at 53 West 53rd Street in New York City. The luxury development by Hines entered sales last year, and construction on the site has finally been spotted by passersby.

They are of course on the foreground. You don't think they are next to the workers do you?

Verre should be 1,550ft and Nordstrom 1,050ft. But you know, life is not fair.

I was really hoping that was the case but for some reason it wasn't making any sense to me. I wanted it to be possible!

A solid built up steel column! The floor plates have reached street level and the top of the column is now above grade by about 25 feet.
