Good to see some progress on this. Arguably the most important skyscraper going up in the country right now, if for no other reason than finally ending the Sears Tower's 40+ year reign. :worship:

It's started rising again finally!

Wow. No I haven't seen those before. That is very impressive curved glass facade. Thanks NYguy!

Not really, just very small height bump in the last two months.

Ooops, I was fooled by 220CPS which looked like it was part of 225 from that angle. Very little progress. I would have thought with the new Chinese financial backing, the pace would accelerate. Guess not. :(

The pace hasn't changed, and has nothing to do with financial backing. They're now building the cantilever, and there won't be much vertical movement for a while.

Once cantilever is done this will shoot up, but it will take a while.

I walked by the site yesterday and you can really imagine how beautiful Nordstrom's undulating glass curtain wall will be by what's already been completed.

That ended with One World Trade, so you're a bit late.

Plenty of construction photos. Just scroll through the pages.

Okay. I will look into it.

NYguy Sep 26, 2016 5:12 PM

Fact: The Central Park Tower will be about 100 ft taller by roof height than the Sears (Willis) Tower.

Fact: The Freedom Tower (1 WTC) will still be the tallest in the country.

Fact: Central Park Tower will be tallest in the country by roof height.

We know all these things. I'm not gonna keep deleting commentary that drives us off topic.

According to Barnett about a month ago, this was 300 feet approximately. So right now, possibly 340 or so. So 1/5 of the total height.

Crawford is right, the lower end of cantilever has already been constructed.

Hey Chris, thanks for posting a pics. I appreciate that. Keep doing it! We need more construction photos.

Where CPT height wise is at right now relative to its surroundings. CPT is in the foreground to the right, and the taller tower is 220 CPS.

We can also see a hotel tower in which the name reflects a very small handed man. With tiny, tiny hands over in Columbus Circle. ;)

220 CPS is clearly a problem for the expanded views from CPT, though the views will be great anyway. Looking at these old elevation drawings and that last photo, things have changed a bit...

Closer to this one...

Couple of older comparisons, roughly a month apart...
