It's not a list of New York's most powerful people if a real estate titan doesn't make the cut, no matter which way the economy is headed. And there probably wasn't much hand-wringing in the New York magazine offices over which developer to feature in this week's issue. There's only one guy with the moxie and (foreign-invested) money to break ground on the tallest residential building in the city in today's climate: Extell's Gary Barnett. But with all that being said, Gabriel Sherman's profile of the Lower East Side-born, by-his-own-rules Barnett is still a fascinating read, from his scrapes with Bruce Ratner and Donald Trump (on Trump's lawsuit after Extell snatched the Riverside South land out from under him: "It’s like so stupid, to be blunt."), to his technology-free work routine ("I think the e-mail is very dangerous") to his birth name (Gershon Swiatycki).

Barnett is quiet with the press but not modest—hence his plan to save the world—and of his Carnegie 57 condo/hotel megatower, he says, "I think it’s going to be the *nicest project done in the city." But when, Gary, when???
Yeesh, we'll tell you! >>

The $1.3 billion Christian de Portzamparc-designed blue-glass tower has taken some shots for rising slower than anticipated, but it seems like things are getting back on track. Its 1,000 feet will appear a lot quicker now that a tower crane is in place. Below is the memo sent to nearby buildings regarding the crane's assembly on 57th Street. Carnegie 57 is expected to be completed in 2013.

Great news. It sure seems the crane operator won't have much room to maneuver it.

There is not much space. I can see they made a passage way to replace the sidewalk. Is this common in NYC? Since the city is so dence. How dangerous is this? Personally I would avoid passing trough that tunel.

There are accidents every year throughout NYC from construction sites. Just part of living in such a highly dense area.

My first time visiting the city I was amazed at the amount of signage posted on each construction site regarding 'how to report dangerous activity' etc. It's taken seriously by the local authorities, but accidents do happen a lot.

It seems like with the crane located in the front of the building like this is going to be very difficult to construct the building. Other plans for a second crane in the center or back side of the building?

I've never seen the plans or heard anything, but I'd say it's back on the other side..So they can get materials and trucks from both streets..
