Pretty soon no more pictures poking through the fence. I can't wait to see the base built, that's the best part of the whole tower IMO.

That's pretty much the site. It's only going to be about 50-75 feet wide at most.

Looking at the pictures on the 1st page and at Google Earth it's actually a bit bigger then that.

On 57th street it's 60m (200ft) wide, on 58th it's just 25m (80ft) wide and it's 60m (200ft) deep.

It's just looks even smaller then it already is because of the buildings around it. I guess we aren't used to this kind of building sites for supertalls anymore with all the big building sites in Chinese new towns or the Dubai deserts. On the other hand you also got the Shard in London and the Abenobashi Terminal Building in Osaka that are U/C on very small building sites.

The small building sites don't look as impressive as the huge ones but they are IMO more interesting, with the city just going on like nothing happens just meters away from a supertall going up.

Nice update btw!

true. in dense cities as HK or NY you watch supertalls / skyscrapers rising adjacent to sidewalks in established (hip) neighborhoods which are already pretty dense.

now we can prepare ourselves for more action since the tower has reached street level!

the architects of these modern skyscrapers get almost all the props, the engineer need to have way more! skyscrapers these day aren't as tough has the square ones in the 70s, all the architects now says leave huge a mounts of glass on the out side of buildings, these new building aren't as safe as we think

Found It!

Here's the site plan filed with the city. You're numbers are close. If I'm reading it right it looks like 159ft wide on 57th St, 78ft on 58th, and 200 ft deep.

I don't see how falling glass is any more or less dangerous than brick/concrete.

The glass is also laminated so even if it breaks it stays where it is.

That thingy on the top face of the tower in the render, what is it? Looks like a coat of arms or icon, or is it just as air vent?
