    Are they encasing the concrete beams with steel?

    Interesting. Blast proof.

    Don't think that steel will stay. Eventually those columns will be clad in glass.

    The welds look pretty permanent to me. I like the blastproof idea. Those columns are integral to the support of the building, and as an added bonus, it saves time for adding cladding brackets.

    Walked the Highline for the first time today (awesome) and got a good look at 10 Hudson Yards going up. Some mightily impressive construction. Hope nothing hinders the masterplan for the site and that in 5 or 6 years this is near fruition.

    Can you remind me why this is reinforced concrete construction, not steel. I know the question came up before, just don't remember the answer.

    Hard to know specifically...maybe they wanted to get the thing out of the ground faster and concrete always kicks off quicker...steel can have a 6+ month lead time.

    They managed to design in an open floor plan despite using concrete so that resolves one of the main reasons so many commercial buildings are steel frame.

    I believe this is the reason Stephen Ross of Related referenced in a NYT interview that I am just not putting my finger on right now. If I find it, I'll post it.

    I like how this is turning out.

    I agree.

    I hope that Related comes up with something nice for the McD's site and that Tishman Speyer hits a grand slam with its 2.8m sf tower on 34th St.
