I don't know much about NYC, but don't you think that area is big enough to handle a small number of taller buildings without losing any of its vibrancy?

There are already many lowrise buildings in that area. Just not as high and dense as the two skylines.

The areas bordering the river are mostly residential or hospitals ( only exception I can't think of is the South Street Seaport, Downtown) so very little to nothing will affect the vibrancy of those areas which is more focused inland. That's why a little more density there is more feasible and will probably occur.

Did a quick model of this building. Just wanted to show the future presence that we will see eventually of this tower in the skyline.

Wow! I've been having a hard time picturing this building in lower manhattan lately. Thanks for the visual!

Thanks and I was curious how it would look with the wtc;and it looks small compared to 1 wtc... I should do 30 park as well. The skyline will never look like that; 30 park will be there first

This building will do what 8 Spruce Street did and help the LM skyline edge a little more northward.

This building (black 'x' in image below) is in an area with many historic districts, so its views will probably remain unblocked for the foreseeable future:

Honestly in the beginning I was kinda indifferent to this project but seeing this rise has really made me appreciate this tower. Can't wait to see the finished project. It will look awesome.

Strange the mini-balcony looking things on the "more normal" section are being installed later rather than with each floor.

Good catch. You can see some rebar sticking out in parts of the close-up. Not sure how else they could seamlessly attach the balconies.

I was just going to say that; it would have been poured as well, maybe they just cut them from the lower floors. I hope so

Maybe they can build faster thanks to it.

These balconys seem to have a lot thinner floors so I guess they just place them in the end with a crane or something.

The reason they haven't built the balconies yet is that self climbing scaffolding or parapet, They can't modify it to follow the form of each balcony, so they construct the regular form of the building and they can make the scaffolding climb. They leave some rebar exposed, later they attach newer rebar to the exposed ones and then they pour the balcony.

The pace of construction has really take off now. In less than 2 and a half weeks they've built 3 new floors, so it is near to one and a half floors per week now.

From SSP the construction from february 19th to march 8th
