Bummer. So how much of a hold up are we looking at?

interesting angle about finding a new subcontractor. If it is because of the time it has taken for this to rise so far, I don't blame them. Maybe the developer should get a 24 hr permit to speed things up.

It is true though that higher floors are faster, although more higher floors are way longer.

It's looks great on renders but why did they choose concrete for so complicated structure ? i think in case of steel structure it could be faster to build this exciting building.

This happened to 432 Park several times in a row early on. Work stop orders don't last more than a week usually.

The neighbors would throw a fit, don't you think? And these are neighbors with relative clout, as compared with those who are so upset over the 24 hour noise at Hudson Yards.

Unfortunately, this remains stalled due to the dispute with the concrete contractor. Hopefully the resolve the issue and restart construction ASAP.

Any updates with 56 Leonard? Have they hired a new concrete contractor?

There are a total 145 units (residences) and as of this past October 130 units are in contracts with only 1 PH available left. That is a staggering 90% sold!

Below is an interesting article of who are the buyers.

In the News: Who’s Buying at 56 Leonard
http://tribecacitizen.com/2013/11/25...at-56-leonard/

Most buildings in the area are zoned 120 feet in height, but 56 Leonard sits on a parcel of land previously owned by the New York Law School zoned for over 300,000 square feet. When complete in 2015, it will be the tallest building in the historic district.

Quote:
70% of buyers at 56 Leonard are from Chelsea on south
Quote:
Over 75 percent of the buyers were from the immediate neighborhoods, according to sales director Liz Unger, who said she was pleasantly surprised with the local turnout.

“It’s different than you can imagine,” Unger said. “When I say local, I mean Chelsea, south of Chelsea, downtowners who are upgrading their current apartment.”
Quote:
Another 10 percent of the buyers came from the rest of the United States. It drew many buyers from California due to the indoor-outdoor feel of the architecture.
Quote:
Of the remaining pool of buyers, they were mostly from Europe, Unger said, but almost all of them already had properties in the city, had lived in the city, and understood the neighborhoods.
“They’ve lived here and they’ve wanted this building and they’ve wanted this location,” Unger said. And the reason the building had such a large European following was because of the Swiss-based architectural firm, she added.

They're making some progress on the exterior, can't really tell if it resumed its upward move from this angle tho. I gotta say it's starting to look amazing!
