    This would serve as a great building to put some of the Media and entertainment companies in considering it's close to Times Sq. Anyone thinking promotion?

    Construction has really picked up at the NYTIMES site, it will be the first in the sky in respect to Times and BOFA race.



    Like the BOFA site there is a driveway on the north side of the site where excavations are allowed on either side. However unlike the BOFA site the tower will be skinnier and they have begun foundation work, while excavations continue on the low-rise wing.





    Close up of foundations.



    Not nearly as deep as the BOFA site, it is however a smaller structure.



    The big mound is not important, itís the drive I mentioned earlier, the orange fencing is where foundations for the central core are well underway. The back-hoe is scarping Manhattan bedrock.



    Construction workers busy as ants creating crucial structural footings.



    More of the same, plus a pile-driver in the background.



    Hereís the southern corner of the tower, the concrete walling the general shape of the building is complete while they are still in forms at the BOFA site.



    Posted at the site is the revised design, while the glass hasnít changed, the screens are shorter, as is the spire which is Chrysler inspired, no longer just a pole. The fabulous Westin is in the background.

    Grrreat!
    We need that building up as quick as possible.
    That area is really void of life and at night, it's really dark and depressing.

    Go NYTT!!

    It's about time we got some real action. I'll just be happy when we get to street level.

    Perhaps the National Review, with a separate elevator bank of course.

    The files are too large for that.

    I, too, am pleased to see this new building go up. I'm not certain the reason for all the excitement about the design, however. It appears to be yet another glass box. I realize all input, here, is personal and subjective, but for those who really really like this new building, may I ask just what makes it so thrilling?

    What are the new heights for the building if they have been lowered ie. top of building, top of screens, top of spire?

    If you don't think the building is "thrilling" already, no amount of explanation would or should change your mind. Its simple, you either like it or you don't.

    Go back in the thread and read about the curtain wall and see the renderings.

    Some of us like glass boxes. Escpecially when it's a Renzo Piano one.

    Great to see that construction is underway.
