    We're gonna get stores!!!
    I read that a bit differently.

    " BofA will have a large retail branch on the avenue:" That's a bank branch.

    "and there will be 14,000 square feet of stores to browse." Doesn't state where they will be. On the street or Anita's Way?

    Sorry, I should have specified: no restrictions on either height or total square footage.

    Whatever. Just because FAR restrictions exist everywhere doesn't mean it can't be amended in specific situations. I think this should have been one of those situations.

    They were pouring slabs today on the upper floors (they're up to #15 there now) at the new building going up at Houston / Ludlow.

    Plus they had a big pile of coal-like briquets in the street.

    Must get F***ing freezing working in a building like this on a day like today.

    I'd last about 20 minutes

    Making it not so different from the rest of the area. But that block has been a dead zone for a while, even a bank branch would give it some life.

    But this is what I want to know...

    Designed by Cook + Fox Architects, it will be one of the city's tallest towers, rising 965 feet to the roof. An ornamental vertical spire will soar to 1,200 feet, taller than the Chrysler Building's 1,048 feet.

    "The spire is being built as we speak," Durst said.
    Where is this spire being built, and when can we at least get a glimpse of it?

    REALLY weird seeing the tanks steaming as they are spinning. Don't know if that is from the wash water, or the thermal energy from the last bits of concrete left in there going through curing, but it almost made the tank took hot...

    Oh, added note. Some of those admixtures effect the final yeild strength of the material. Also, slabs are important in modern building because of the newer seismic design requirements (you need a good diaphragm to transfer force from the masses in the building to the lateral resisting elements like shear walls and brace frames.)

    But the biggest reason(s) they do not liek admixtures like that is that they cost money. Both in material cost and in what you have to do once you get them (application). There are many effects these mixtures have and some require special construction considerations which ALSO cost money.

    So if the choice is delay a few days or pay an extra $$ for admixtures sometimes the former is more desirable than the latter.

    Default is there some kind of internal mall on the corner?
