    10 HY Doesn't look like it will be done next year though.

    And if they value quality workmanship, they wouldn't try to rush it either.

    But why is their estimate so wrong? Even outside observers like us know 2015 couldn't possibly be achieved.

    I'm not sure why this would be the prevailing attitude. Imagine, once the concrete in the base is full strength over the next month or two that they can just start building on top. Even at a floor a week, it's only about 44 floors to go. That's less than a year. They can start glass as soon as the forms come down from the bottom and it could get glassed to be done the exterior by the end of summer next year. I doubt every interior floor will be fitted out by the end of next year, but I don't see how they don't have the building open the way 4WTC is open but mostly empty. Clearly this is weather permitting, and something could happen to delay it further (I imagine last winter didn't help).

    worth another look if you've already seen it...

    Wow, not bad. Are they advertising these on television, or are these strictly for the internet?

    Love how the glass and steel comes flying outta no where in the first vid. Too bad it's not that easy.

    If it were, New York would jump from 2014 to 2273.

    Though of something. If the platform is the same level as the highline, what happens when it meets 11th Avenue?

    The platform is NOT the same level as the highline.

    Ok I figured it out now. It's the white section seen behind 10 HY below. At SSC some mentioned that that area will contain a Fairway?

    ^^Yes the platform is a flat plane at the same elevation at the high line. What changes is 11th avenue over the rail yards slopes significantly and dips below the high line. Where this slope is, is where the lobby/entrance for the corset tower will be. Then loading/unloading/ and the fairway market will be tucked under the high line facing 30th street.

    Not talked about very much here is the amount of grade changes happening around the site. For example the eastern yards train tracks are really at grade with the west side highway, which is why they wouldn't bother to extend the street grid through to the other side. Similarly they will be completely rebuilding 33rd street to be at grade with the platform/ hudson blvd, which currently slopes in a 'u' at nearly a story deep below where the final height will be. This should also facilitate the underground connection to the subway that was mentioned in an earlier video from related.

    JSsocal You're right, I completely forgot about the slope from north to south.

    I've never seen so much scaffolding.
