Here is an example of how I completely lost interest, "structural drawings would read as "#5 at 8" o.c. "

How does that benefit my knowledge?
#5 is perhaps the rebar size???.... 8"o.c.... meaning 8" on center (center of rebar to center of rebar)
And that rendering above with theoretical neighbors around 432 Park Ave is NOT entirely crazy..... subways and commuter rail are the life blood of skyscrapers..... once East Side Access is complete - AND - once the next economic upturn cycle returns it's possible to see many more super talls in Midtown East being built.
432 Park Ave if built today would stand pretty tall in Midtown East..... but perhaps in 30 to 50 years it might be commonplace.
Aaaaand that's my first posting in nearly 5 years. ;-)
