The four Seasons will occupy the lower floors.; looks like that floor, or above it the residential floors start, maybe the transition made it slow...I'm basing this off their model, I could be wrong

You can tell from the webcam that the last floor they finished was double height, which must have complicated construction.

Also says 82 floors when I count 69; so based off their numbering system I'm not sure where 27 rests in the building

Hey folks, it's a long time since I visited SSC. I had a ton of studying since next year I'm gonna start on a uni, but all went well and now I have a free summer. I've updated my diagram with the latest progress. I estimate the building to currently be 87 meters or 286 feet tall

Roof height used below

Looks like the cam has moved up again!
Also, the cam is now being updated every few hours so we can be updated much more regularly!
Work is about to begin on the 6th floor from the set back

Looks like this floor has been taking a while because it's a mechanical floor. I expect this they will get back to the 1.5 floor per week pace they were at before after this is finished.

30 Park Place Better Hurry if It Wants to Be Downtown's Tallest



Quote:
30 Park Place—if it wants to be downtown's tallest residential tower, however briefly—has reason to keep construction moving along. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed tower, with a hotel on the bottom and condos on top, will eventually stand at 926 feet, but 22 Thames Street is coming up right behind it and is slated to take over the title at 960 feet (depending on whether or not new owner Michael Shvo keeps Vinoly's design). However, while construction on that project has yet to begin, 30 Park Place is chugging right along. Field Condition snapped some photos of the rising tower, which is currently around the one-third mark, and already looking pretty tall. Stern's signature limestone paneling is being installed as the building goes up.

The cladding stone is absolutely gorgeous. This building might not be that tall, but it is one of the greatest masterpieces of architecture I ever saw

I think it's too early to judge. It still has to be cleaned and there's the possibility that they will put a glaze of some kind on it. I hope they do glaze the facade -- real limestone has a certain reflectivity that these concrete panels currently lack.

Because it's a nice refresher to the usual all-glass facade highrises going up in the city. At least, that's why I like it so much. Just something different for once.

The façade looks super! Very happy with it so far. Would love to see the windows installed but I think it will be nice. A fabulous addition to lower manhattan.

56 Leonard is the truly different one! This is okay but honestly not very original in terms of design.

Originality is overrated and overstated. There's nothing new under the sun. Meanwhile, there's no other building like this being built today by any other architect in the world.

TBH I'm pretty underwhelmed as well... of course I also think 15 CPW is dull so I guess that's just my preference. 220 CPS is the jewel of the bunch.

I do however greatly admire the speed at which this tower is flying up, and these panels will probably look a lot better once installation is totally complete (grout, etc).

I think this tower will look fantastic, once you see the glass along with the limestone is when it will really start to look good.

Maybe not at this very moment but there have been lots of postmodern designs in the same vein as this in several different cities. Robert Stern is just another Lucien Lagrange and this particular design while not awful isn't really all that interesting.
