I doubt your ears are deceiving you VG. As in most demo jobs, all the action at this stage is happening in the interior so we won't see anything till those parts of the buildings are about to come down.
Let's also remember that there won't be much digging needed for this tower based on the structural renders we saw ( which still kind of puzzles me). So most of the action there will be demo work.

^^ I know the site is actually much wider, but it's a friggin' trip looking at that lot and imagining 111 rising there!! :nuts:
I hear ya, lol... when I visited the site with my friend a few weekends back it was just jaw dropping how really a sliver that space is. Obviously like you said there will be more of a footprint as they use some space behind the lot I Believe but even when finished it's going to be a trip how skinny that high flyer will be!

Construction Update: 111 West 57th Street

http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/05/construction-update-111-west-57th-street.html/1#



Excavation is finally beginning at 111 West 57th Street, where on-site machinery had previously been sitting idle. Digging is already making quick progress, and a comparison of yesterday’s construction shot with a photo from one week earlier reveals that earth underneath the site is slowly shrinking away. JDS and Property Markets Group are the developers, and SHoP is the architect.

Fresh progress at The Steinway Tower means that work has now begun at all major ‘supertall’ sites on 57th Street. Excavation is further along on western rivals at 217 West 57th Street and 220 Central Park South, but the smaller scope of initial work at 111 West 57th Street — given the project’s confines — could mean that all three developments begin rising out of the ground simultaneously, either late this year or in early 2015.

New signage is also up at the site, indicating that construction is expected to be complete by June of 2017. 111 West 57th Street will eventually stand nearly 1,400 feet to its pinnacle, and contain approximately 80 residences.
