There is a core jump in progress. This means concrete has been poured up to apparent level 58 at 899' and the forms now are up to start 59 at 914' 6''

Have my eyes tricked me? I actually saw the core rise earlier. Now, it appears that they actually lowered the core form down to its previous level. It also appears that that either concrete is being poured into the core form, or perhaps the concrete lines are being grouted in preparation for column pours. A mistake?

Currently, the columns are being poured, so perhaps the core form was lowered was to allow the concrete placing boom to reach the column / perimeter beam forms.

I was thinking the same thing.

The only problem I have with this building is that I'm afraid it (and other Central Park supertowers) will take attention away from the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. Call me a NIMBY, but I think the Empire State should have the Empire State Building dominate. Even with this problem, I cant wait for all of the projects to be finished

Outrigger walls

Every 12 floors there are 2 mechanical floors which serve triple purpose: 1) accommodate technical stuff; b) connect the building core to the perimeter columns through outrigger walls; c) let air pass through the building, thus minimizing vortex excitation.

While browsing the internet in search of technical data about this building I have not been able to find any floor plans or construction photos of these mechanical floors. I am specifically interested in the outrigger walls: how thick they are, where are they located in plan and how the outrigger walls are connected to perimeter columns. There are hints about the presence of outriggers, but I haven't found any drawings.

I am doing individual structural analysis on the building and would really appreciate some information about the mechanical floor plan.

There are diagrams in the first 100 pages. I will post any I see that might help.

For those that haven't read the thread and keep asking the same question over and over again, here's how the architects are dealing with the wind:

This diagram will be useful soon to see the floors and elevations.
