    Couldn't agree more.

    Ha, I may have overstated, but they are going to be pretty close to 43 stories in 3 weeks (even with the current weather). There aren't that many floors left to go. Guess we'll see how much they...

    Hey All -

    Here are a few pics I took this afternoon. For reference, I'm on 24th floor at river place, so these must be between up to the 25-30th floors. Funny thing is I didn't really know these...
  4. Been ever so long since I've been on, but this...

    Been ever so long since I've been on, but this building and the rockrose one on w37th are going up insanely fast. I honestly didn't know about them until about 3 weeks ago when they broke the the 10...

    I was way off before -- they are just starting on the 18th floor now (with the white tarps drapped over the 18th).

    Here are a few pics of the RPII site and the site next to the Atelier (they are...

    I'm still shocked that Trump could build something that didn't look like new jersey just threw it up (ie clad in fake-looking gold).

    Well done. Bring that class to NYC.

    I'd say that sounds right about the blasting -- I noticed the horn-blast guide on the site walls (ie one toot for clear the site, two for ignition, etc etc etc). Going to be some fun walks to work!

    Indeed, they do start early, but I figure the earlier they start, the sooner the building is done. I face the south in RPI and I get to listen to the beeping of buses at the MTA depot all night --...

    And it just keeps cranking along...

    From BurjDubaiSkyscraper.com...
    Burj Dubai is now 574.5 meters tall at level 154, it is 65 m ahead of Taipei 101 and 21 m ahead of CN Tower.

    ^ went up this past Saturday.

    Two tower cranes makes the two tower Silverstein plan look more and more realistic (not that it was doubted).

    There is a sign up at River Place I saying 41st st, btw 11/12th aves will be closed one day this coming week because another crane is going up. They're really cranking at this site the last month. ...

    Paris, Paris, Paris (and some Versailles, too)

    Well...I've been absent for a month plus, but at least I return with some pictures from Paris. By 'some', I mean 600 pics, but they turned out well, so I posted them all. They range from the cool...

    They are working away, even on weekends. There is now scaffolding going up on the edge of the site, along with Derek's pic of the crane, there are a few smaller cranes in the pit...rather exciting...

    That lattice work on the SF concept high rise being integrated with farley would be amazing -- the classic marble building at one end, arching, classy lattice building at the other. Yum.

    Oh la la, such a big'un. There was a segment on 'Very Big Things' on Discovery or National Geo or History or Science or whatever channel in the last few days, and the dude went to the top of the...

    NYC and the rest of the world should really take notice. Look at the above, the soaring entrance compared to the bunker that is 'Freedom Tower' (such a paradox -- Freedom Tower is in lockdown...). ...

    Hey, there is a Cinnabon there, that's almost enough to make 2 Penn Plaza and the dark corridors all ok! Well, maybe not, but they do have great cinnamon rolls.

    I agree -- NY Times crown looks horrible when you can see the mechanical stuff up there, window washer, etc. Same for the Orion -- such a beautiful building, but I hate seeing the window washer...

    Completely -- unique & classy. NY used to have that tagline when it came to architecture (ie over half a century ago). One day maybe it will return...

    The more cladding I see, the more I like it. Lets hope this trend continues and the whole building looks great completed. Really nice, classy sign too for the building...

    Sounds pretty much like I heard. And thats about extent of what I've heard as well. High end caterer in Atelier, possible Whole Foods in Atelier's sister.

    Personally, I love Whole Foods, but...

    I remember when that first popped up, still my favorite -- i can deal with my gothic Pierre clone elsewhere for ^ instead.

    Not sure if we're mixing each other up, but, I was meaning the lot to the left of the photo (east of tunnel tower -- since this is looking south). Either way...most the time that parking lot west of...

    Now that's too funny -- I was watching Live Earth, looking out my window at the ESB, wondering why the hell St. Patty's Day lights were on. Sheesh, I blame the heat.
