US Cranes just told me they’ve started jumping the crane! Today they’re putting in tie beams and tomorrow they do the final jump adding 3 more mast sections. The construction has been halted because they’ve been waiting for approvals to jump the crane, just like I said weeks ago!
it’s about time!
Haven’t been paying attention, but has the cladding continued to climb while steel construction is paused?
Steel is currently paused, but I believe they could finish it this week or next because the crane is about to be jumped
This building reflects the sun like no other. Sometimes looks like a rendering. The moire design was such a good choice.
This shot taken yesterday: the crane not in operation. The site seems to be somewhat dormant: maybe the interior spaces are now the where all the activity is now happening.
I can’t get past the paywall to read these articles: would like to know the current legal/financial status, construction budget/timeline, projected completion dates. Any news you (or anyone) can offer would be appreciated.
I’m no insider, I’m just a teenager who finds sources scattering the internet. I have asked US Cranes about the situation again, waiting for a response
Got it: just a request to the WWW - world wide web. Not you particularly - but thanks for all your great information.
I’m currently looking at the Midtown skyline and thinking to myself how if we had a few 2000+ footers paired up with the current giants I could die happy.
From Field Condition website: best view of current conditions I could find.
I see this has been done on this thread, missed that - sorry. It is so good we can show it twice… I don’t claim to know how long these things are ‘supposed’ to take to complete - but this final stage seems to be moving at a slower pace. I am wondering what the projected ‘occupancy date’ is on this project.
