230 Park Ave cam from RXR Realty.
once you see several floors fireproofed, glass should follow shortly after.
And there’s three floors already fireproofed. I can feel that glass coming in a few weeks
what a great morning to photograph - wish I could have been there!
It looks so imposing already and it’s not even halfway up.
OK guys, calm down
Dimon’s Palace is coming along very nicely. Just keep in mind this is the second of many massive supertalls that will be going up in the Midtown East corridor.
Only in NY!
I don’t want to get hopes up, but I believe façade installation is extremely near now, what appears to (most likely) be façade clips are being installed on the tabletop floor.
It’s quite possible that once the fireproofing rises another floor and/or we see clips being installed on the 2nd trade floor that cladding should follow imminently. I guess our first preview of the cladding won’t be through a mock-up but the actual product.
You’re not wrong at all, it’s definitely coming close unless there is some sort of supply chain issue, which I imagine a project this high budget will not run into. They usually clad very quickly after fireproofing, because it speeds up the time to begin interior work which takes a while
expect bracing along the steel columns before any glass. That needs to go first, then the curtainwall can be installed from the bottom up.
I’d love to be able to go see the construction (and possibly climb once topped out) but with school, then San Diego there’s no way.
As for the glass, I can’t wait to see how it looks, even just on the base.
Man this thing is just so freaking massive, and it’s just getting started
For some reason I don’t expect to see secondary support structure added to the columns for their cladding covers, it’s probable that they will be simple unitized panels that just attach to clips around the columns similar to what happened at 50 Hudson Yards and a better example being 3 WTC. If it were a different material (like stone or something heavy) I’d more expect to see secondary structure added like on the podium of 601 W 29th St.
But that’s just speculation at the moment, I don’t doubt that the column caps will be unitized panels though.
I’m looking forward to seeing street level photos from a distance, so you can get an idea of its size without forced perspective. The up close photos are great, but I’m ready for the longer shots.
