You are right, this is mini excavation done by mini construction equipment.
Anyway, most of the work on the site will be demolition not excavation. I will try to get more pictures next weekend.

You can rent one of those little loaders for a couple hundred a day....Hardly evidence...jeez I want this tower to go vertical, best supertall design proposal in NYC IMO.

Agreed love this tower...I thought I should post a few of these here. The future of the skyline is bright!. I made models of 111 west 57th street,520 Park Avenue, 220 Central Park south, tower verre, 432 park avenue, one57

All the nervous nelllies should know by now that designs, especially of this scope, are always being tweaked.

Why would it not be?

Right. As you all already know, this project involves more than just digging a hole. There is much to be done, and if they've begun, they've begun. But let me just state that even if nothing had begun on site, in no way would the development be "languishing", and applies to both this site and the Tower Verre site for those concerned about that one.






The gap with 432 is why I want a tower of 900 ft or so at the 31 W. 57th street sight.

These images are like porn. This and Torre Verre must get built.

Why would the architects have gone through all this presentation reigamarole inf they were *even at this point* unsure of what the thing would *even remotely* look like???

Enough with the hysterics. This building will look like the images. There are still lots of details to work out, but nothing fundamental is changing.

My point was that construction documents are not ready for the building (I get the impression that they still aren't through 100% DD), so even if JDS was ready to pour concrete tomorrow we just aren't at that stage yet. The design and documentation phase is still ongoing.

Why all the presentations? They want the buzz, the publicity, the prestige. Why buy a place a One57 for $80 million when you could hold out for an even sexier place down the street?

Sorry that the dog and pony show isn't geared towards nit-pickers on the Internet.

Awesome work. Please keep it up! :tup:

Does 31w 57th street include that dumpy building three over from the Plaza? I know it was recently sold and I believe the rumors were that it would eventually be demolished for an ultra luxury tower...

That's the Park Lane Hotel, which is on CPS. Not part of the 31 W 57th deal.

We will usher in the 2020s in grand style. :notacrook:

But beyond that, there is still much to do here. Both interior and exterior portions of the building are landmarked, and portions of the building are in the process of being altered/demolished.

The lowrise portion in the background will be demolished, but more of the building will be left intact due to revisions from Landmarks. That alone has altered the design.
There are other details that are still being worked out, for example revisions to the design on the façade (see below)...
