That view to the north is really astonishing. You can see the George Washington Bridge OVER the buildings on the Upper West Side. Just beautiful...

I know it's life in NYC, but I would be so pissed if I lived in the triangle shaped building in the corner appartments. they have a GREAT view that will soon go bye bye.

Carnegie 57 images

Some images from Google earth. We may have a better idea of how this building will be from different angles of the city.

It's still amazing that this tower will be build and that it'll be build on that particular location. The renders above proof that this will be an amazingly tall and needed addition to the skyline, and it's gonna add the verticality that's needed. I hope tower verre and the other tall one proposed for MT will be UC soon.

So we're at floor 12-13 now?
For some reason when I look at this thread it always surprises me to see it actually rising. It seems to be growing and growing, but with little fanfare. Once this guys gets some more height to it I'm sure people will start to take notice.

It's moving along at a pretty good clip. This will be a fantastic addition to the Manhatten skyline once it is done.

The triangle building is Metropolitan Tower, and yes they have had those beautiful views for a long time. But remember, that building itself is blocking what would otherwise be amazing views from the building behind it, which is CitySpire. That is indeed the way things go in NYC! If you're not directly on the park/water/etc, you have to enjoy your view while it lasts.

This was true because of the view of Central Park, but with the Carnegie 57 tower you won't see half as much.

This will be no more:





And they aren't going to open an ob deck in this one are they? It would be a good spot because it's really a lot higher than the surrounding buildings. Like in Times Square or in vicinity of Ground Zero the buildings are so high they all ruin your view, but this tower should have a great panorama
True. The 15 Penn building will basically ruin the view from Rockefeller towards the ESB and WTC. There won't be much left. I could imagine that the people from Rockefeller are gonna be pissed. But that's basically the story of a developing city.

It won't affect the Rock's view very much:

Man oh man look how crowded New York is. I can't believe they don't cave and develop Central Park, or part of it, I'll bet some developers have made some sky high offers/bribes for a piece of it.

Man, the world will end before Central Park gets developed!
That's the whole point of it, to give some tranquility in the center of the big city. I'm willing to bet both my legs that it will never get developed.

Looks like construction elevator is placed on the Central Park side, or 58th street above the lobby..Which is logical because it's the only part of the building which goes straight to the top...

Video from yesterday..

That's why it takes forever to build a birdhouse in this country, how can you get anything done if you only work 40 hours a week? And unions, politics, etc. No one can wonder why China, though far from perfect, is on it's way to becoming the economic superpower.

Around here it's the same way, even on the tunnel which is in the middle of an interstate on a island with no residentials nearby, and it's hot here, yet still no work at night or on weekends! Come on! Dig the damn thing!

They can legally work way more than 40 hours a week. if you listened to the narrator he was complaining about 42 hours over the maximum allowable hours, not that 42 was the max that you can work.

As for your tunnel, I assume it is a government project and they don't want to spend the extra money on overtime from using night and weekend labor. If it isn't a government project... Then the "free market" obviously did not demand that they work nights and weekends. When the private sector takes on the function of the government in building infrastructure the contracts are sooo big that getting a work hour variance would be relatively easy, especially with the facts you presented above.

I like the tremendous growth in China, but I love the quality of life in the USA more. I am not a construction worker, but I believe that they should be able to raise a family on their wages. In america we pay for quality, not quantity.

Can't wait to see this building take off!!!
