225 W57th, the site where Extell will construct another 300m+ tower, is visible in this photo. It's the building on the left covered in black netting next to an empty lot on which Extell already razed the existing structures. It's amazing that two very tall towers will sit so close to one another.

The only steel 157 uses is rebar, it's a relatively simple no core concrete structure from what I know (if anybody knows more detail I'd love to hear it ) so I don't think that the dubious status of the steel industry in NYC would affect it in any major way (though I might be wrong ). The slow progress lately might be because of weather. I remember that in the middle of December or so they were at floor 48, now they are at floor 50 so there is progress but it's slow

I guarantee you it's the weather. It's been rainy and windy all month, and recently snowed.

Ah yes, I forgot it's a concrete building. As Uaarkson said, it must be the weather then.

I walked by the site on 24 Jan 2012, and the glass looks stunning. By the way, the curvy panels at the base that have been depictted in photos had a protective covering on them and look completely different in person (without the covering which has been removed).

By the way - awesome 57th st cladding :0
It isn't taller then 1 New York Plaze or GE

Uaarkson is right, it's weather. Snow, rain and even on days where it's been clear it's been very windy. This tower has a loan from Bank of America. No need to worry.

And I know it's hard to believe, but as much as the photo updates are appreciated they don't do the cladding justice.

Before I start talking let me note that all of what I am about to say is only hypothesizing of a non engineer. I think 157 might use the grid model which was used in older buildings like the ESB. In the tube model you have a core and perimeter columns and beams or trusses connecting them but in a grid model you have a dense grid of either steel columns or in the case of 157 concrete walls and columns that hold the building. From what I heared a building with a core is stronger but I can imagine there might be problems to incorporate a sufficient core into a building of this shape
