That's generally how they frame the floors in residential towers in NY.

Looks like a big steel column left of the stairs. This scaffolding will support the 1st floor I think.

NYC residential towers don't use steel. They're just concrete. Only office towers use steel in NY.

If this is a concrete tower, won't that make it the tallest one in new york?

I believe so. All taller towers in NY are offices, and therefore, they have steel frames.

BoA Tower is a concrete building. Though you could argue it's more a composite structure. Still it was made using concrete and cement slag.

Clearly it used a lot of steel. It's listed as a composite structure on Emporis. So I'd assume concrete/steel. The building is touted for its use of recycled materials, especially the concrete that was used.

Carn. 57 should probably get the title for tallest all concrete building in NY. But I believe Trump Tower Chicago will still hold the title for tallest concrete in US.

Why is that?
Or could it be encased in concrete?

I don't know. I guess it's just what the NY Building Code stipulates because office towers are always steel and hotel and residential towers are always concrete.

What's with the lobby in this tower? There has to be some kind of lobby at the ground floor..

There's an interesting overhead shot of the tower which shows the L-shaped plot on the architect's website: http://chdeportzamparc.com. I posted it below.



Note that the 58th Street side seems to have a base that extends to the street. I wonder if this is what the base looks like on W58th.
