Time-Lapse Video Showcases Construction of 56 Leonard in Manhattan
In a forest of tall and heterogeneous skyscrapers, it can be difficult to make something in Manhattan truly stand out. But when Hines and Alexico Group first released plans to create a Jenga-like tower that would become the tallest building in New York City's famous Tribeca neighbourhood, the project immediately caught the attention of architecture fanatics around the world. The first skyscraper designed by internationally acclaimed architects Herzog and de Meuron, the completed 56 Leonard was given the time-lapse treatment by EarthCam, who condensed the project's 33-month vertical and exterior construction into a one-minute video.

Gotta ask....
They ever put the bean at the bottom of this?
They had most certainly laid out a ring of rebar in the sidewalk for the Bean, but then covered it over with concrete, and there still hasn't been any sign of the sculpture work occurring.
The official website for the building still proudly shows the Bean in renders and has a tab for Anish Kapoor's work. http://56leonardtribeca.com/anish-kapoor/

According to a report on Tribeca Citizen from February 1st, 2018, the fabricator has made most of the slices and is working on assembling them. It will take a while to prepare the slices before they can be delivered to the site, and the sculpture is a lot more structurally complicated than the famous Chicago Bean that built by the same firm.
