That part I figured. but I couldn't see shit inside and since they were really busy no one allowed me to stay in the only little doorway into the site and make pictures. So I could not understand what and where exactly they are installing these. By the looks of it - the underground phase is over. It was well over the grade at the time I looked at it. The whole street is open in front of the future building and something going on there as well, but nothing can be seen from behind the fence.

Yeah, I know, it's a mess...It would be really great if someone could take a photo or two from buildings around the site...So we can see waht's goin' on from up there...

Foundations are the most boring part of the construction, so I will rather start getting excited when they'll come out of the hole and we will see some more exposed results of their work.

concrete doesn't fall near as easily, older buildings were supported from the outside newer building form the inside in some sort of central core, this isn't near as sturdy, Vancouver is due for 9 earthquake and all of our high rises are built like this, in the Chile earth quake most of the building that collapsed were new and built in this way
any ways this is off topic lol

A 9 earthquake? That would turn the city into soup.

The glass ribbons are beautiful! But the render makes the sidewalk look very small.

Guys. The odds that the cladding will look that good are infinitesimal. Don't get your hopes up.

I thought the same thing about the Shard, but the cladding there is even better than in the renders...

Is it just me, or does this building have a sort of a 50's vibe to it?

I get a deco feel from it.

I don't think it looks art deco due to the curved roofs.

No, it is modern, but it has classic New York vibes thrown into it. It looks good.

Yeah, it has some basic art deco inspiration in the shape (setbacks), like many modern skyscrapers in NYC do (Beekman Place is a recent example, which is more art deco-ish than this one by far, of course), but in style it is of course greatly different, it does not have the individual windows, and, as RobertWalpole already said, its setbacks also have a curved shape, which art deco towers do not have. So overall it is a very modern design while as Blue_Flame said, retaining a distinct NYC-ish feel. "Old and new", as they say.
