[QUOTE=NYguy;9191139]It's been in the construction forum for a while now. The building has been under construction a lot longer.

But it's moving along now, and I'm thinking it wasn't that long ago when we were at this stage with Vanderbilt. This construction will go by quickly. So enjoy it while it last!






In the Chicago forum, we consider this the Banana celebration stage.

No, it just has a large footprint.

This image that NYguy posted on page 54 explains it well, showing that construction is taking place where the shorter podium used to be:

And here's the other piece of info that explains it...








The base of the structure is what's taking shape now. It will be huge.

Emporis also knows that this building is under construction:

But CTBUH still does not:

I think the CTBUH waits until demo is fully complete. They have classifications for demo, u/c, proposed, vision, complete and on-hold.

they're also fumbling around with transferring their database to their main website so I wouldn't be surprised if the data isn't up to date.

Not really. This tower has been uner construction (by SSP standards) for well over a year, maybe even closer to two. But everything was below grade, where it wasn't visible. To me, it didn't make sense to move it until it was visible, particularly with the 700 ft demo project clearly visible. But now that steel is rising way above grade, it was obviously time to move it. It may have caught some by surprise, but it's been stated it was under construction.

Its looking like they will move quick on it too. Almost like a One Vanderbilt type of deal, will rise quick.

^ I hope so. It has about the same number of floors, but this is a lot larger building.


Here's another diagram for the fire service elevators that shows a breakdown of floors....

a lot of this already looks pretty far along. they arent going to build past this half of the base until the demo is cleared away, are they? although it would be funny to see half a tower start to go up while the other half comes down.

For now, they can only build up to the 3rd level, they're still waiting on the city to sign off on the plaza design. They can't get the full construction permit until then. But they are supposed to get some floors rising on the Madison Avenue side by the end of summer.








The timing on this has probably changed. It could be sooner or later.
