I was looking for the elevator shafts too. And we've known for a long time, that there's wasn't going to be a core.

A supertall without a core? That isn't very safe. I wouldn't want to live in a supertall without a core

There's loads of supertalls without cores, there's different options that a concrete core. Besides this building is concrete not steel (well it's re-enforced) so the strength is much more stronger

If it wouldn't be safe, this building wouldn't be under construction..

I'm guessing that it is under the wooden platform to the left of the floorplate in these photos... The platform seems to be built through the floor, indicating that there is a rectangular opening in the concrete in that area.

The only other place it could be would be behind the crane in the photos... But I don't think there is enough space there, and it wouldn't make sense to put the elevators near the outside edge of the building (that is very valuable window space). So under the wooden platform would be my best guess.

So you are saying the shaft is that part in the center where the wood is coming out of the floor?

This red steel is part of windscreens..It's not part of the building..

And about the shaft..It's hard to say because big area is not visible because of those windscreens on the left..I'll wait for the next update from up there to see what's behind those windscreens..I wouldn't be surprised if there's some kind of wooden platform to cover the shaft so workers can run over safely..

Did the residents in the upper floors of the Metropolitan Tower have conniptions over this building, or are they starting to now? One57 is going to block a huge portion of their park views. Views from CitySpire Center may also be affected.

I think the shaft is probably behind the crane. It would make sense to have it in the centre of the buidling.

I doesn't really make any difference since those are full floor apartments..

Plus, it has to be back on that Central Park side since this is the tallest part of building..Elevators run to the last floor, sometimes even to the roof..

I forgot that these were full-floor apartments. This is why it would make sense to have the shaft on a side or even a corner. Sure, it is valuable window space, but these are apartments, not offices.

If I had to put money on it now, that is what I would guess... But others have brought up good points - could be behind the windscreens or the crane. Maybe if we can get some photos from a different angle we will be able to tell.
