That is some extreme structure on that scaffolding. Of course, it has to go up 800 feet!

The lot size for this is shockingly small. I would never guess this would be a skyscraper on such a small lot if not for this forum.

Nice. Until the end of the year should reach 10 floors.

Hey folks, I updated my diagram. According to the latest pics it looks like the building is approximately 35 meters or 115 feet tall

Roof height used below

Seriously. Although I think once it gets past the first several levels, and the floors become much more regular, this will start to rise much more rapidly.

Not sure why would you think that because each floor plate is different... Look at pictures on first page.

Not true. Except balconies, after some point, half of the building is quite boxy really. Only at the top third section of it real craziness happens

That's great news. It shows that Downtown isn't some sort of second class Manhattan. I hope that this will mean that we will see more and taller residential towers proposed in Downtown in the near future

Yes, that's why I've said after some point. By the look on that render I posted it seems pretty much square above that flat roofed low-rise.

If my patheticaly drawn silhouette () of the building is accurate, the irregular floors should end at 40 meters. Currently we are at approximately 35 meters

YIMBY reports: http://newyorkyimby.com/
http://newyorkyimby.com/2013/11/stop...rd-street.html

Quote:
The city has issued a stop-work order at 56 Leonard Street, and the violation looks like it has to do with the site’s scaffolding – in DOB words, ‘work without permit’. YIMBY reader Richard reports that workers have been absent from the site for the past week, and his view overlooking the site is above; indeed, it appears that all construction activity has temporarily ceased.

A YIMBY reader sent in an additional tip that the project’s concrete contractor has been dismissed, and a new subcontractor is actively being sought; whether this is because the first few floors have taken 8 months to complete remains to be seen, but there is clearly a shake-up in the works.

Many projects receive stop-work orders over the course of their rise, so the problem is far from abnormal – especially at a site like 56 Leonard, which has so much scaffolding because of the irregular floorplates. The forms and metal-work must be kept in place for 90 days post-concrete pouring, and the process of building Herzog & de Meuron’s Tribeca masterpiece is far from simple.

Once 56 Leonard resumes construction, it should begin to rise at a faster pace; forms have now passed the most complicated of the lower levels, and the tower’s mid-sections have relatively uniform layouts.
