No it won't, Steinway is on the other side of 6th ave.
The view could be blocked by Park Lane if it is ever redeveloped or 31 W57th, depending on how tall it is.

Everywhere you turn around, you are reminded of all the great stuff going up in the city, but this one is just special. A pure masterpiece.

Great to see the entrance part already shaping in to the forms. At level 4 it will be shaping backwards. Good progress en a real beauty.

If there was ever a tower that should have not been scaled back this is the one. This could still end up being the greatest tower ever built.

So the diagonal supports are poured concrete and not solid steel. Interesting. Wouldn't solid steel beams be better because of the diagonal?

The diagonal beams here are not just for stiffnes, but also transfer a lot of the weight of the upper part of the building to the ground. They probably can be seen more as supercolumns that are just not completly vertical and incorporate the function of braces. So there is a lot of pressure loading and that's what concrete is god at.

I mean, it's still reinforced concrete, there will be steel.

The formwork is going to be slow going since just about every floor is unique. This is not like some of those other buildings where a bunch of floors are identical and they can just plop down the same forms over and over again. 30 Park comes to mind, at one point they were doing a floor every 2 days.

I think this is a rather complicated building, from a construction point of view.
Comparable to Hudson Yards 30.

Well, compared to the regular straight line buildings of NY it is. But you only need someone good at math to calculate the angels. Its no the ordinary build but not that hard when you have qualified people working on it. Its like tuning torso in malmö sweden. It was no problem to build it.
