Thanks for posting all these great pics. This one really brought up some old memories as a kid riding the train down into the city and catching the 1st glimpse of the skyline. Most of us probably can relate.

Beautiful skyline. You fellas have been spoiled with great projects ;)

^ Do we have any Skip Elevator experts in here? How is it possible that the cross-bracing "columns" at the bottom of the skip can hold 1500' of skip structure above it? Or are the loads distributed laterally into the adjacent structure?

Elevator skips are supported almost entirely by the parent superstructure.

One57 went from dominating the skyline to being dwarfed in record time.
