These towers are seriously undermining my faith in NY and it's future. I'm seriously losing interest in the city if they are building boxes like this. Time to force these conservative, corporate fat cats to design something for the city, not just for their shareholders.

It's interesting how similar they are in plan. Convergent evolution.

Relax. They build these. But they also build 111 W. 57th St., One Vandy, and Verre.

An odd outburst. On a smaller scale, assuming you own a house or 3-flat or whatever, would you ever spend your money on a design "for the neighborhood"? Would you open a public park on your front lawn? To put down an extra million on fancy shingles or unnecessary structural bracing would be absurd if asphalt shingles and 2x4s will get the job done.

Oh you're right. I thought I was seeing double.

Fun phase of the construction, still low enough to look down on, but high enough to be noticeable. Hard to believe this use to be parking lots and McDonald's.

Steelwork For Norman Foster’s 50 Hudson Yards Continues To Rise

Quote:
The steel superstructure is continuing to rise skyward at 50 Hudson Yards, the number-nine project on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York City. Workers have made a significant amount of progress since we checked in one year ago, when foundations were just beginning to make their way toward street level. Now, a mass of steel beams, columns, and trusses for the wide floor plates are ascending around the reinforced concrete core. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the 1,011-foot-tall commercial office supertall is the final segment of the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards complex. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are developing the 2.9-million-square-foot structure, the largest component in the 28-acre master plan by volume.

Installation of the curtain wall has not begun yet and will not likely commence until a large amount of floors have been sprayed with fireproofing. There are currently four construction cranes on site: one on the western end, two on the eastern half, and one atop the rising core.

The footprint of 50 Hudson Yards is massive in scale when compared to other skyscrapers like 15 Hudson Yards or 35 Hudson Yards. Foster’s design takes up an entire rectangular parcel between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue and will rise right across from the wide northern profile of 30 Hudson Yards. The flat roof parapet will be only 120 feet below Kohn Pedersen Fox’s cantilevering observatory, aka “The Edge.”

50 Hudson Yards will be completed around 2022.

Four cranes on one building. Like each of the Twins back in the day.

Is it true that a seasoned, union crane operator can make seven figures in NYC, with overtime? I would imagine that would be before tax though?

I recall figures around 300-450k. Base pay that is. With overtime some of the lucrative and coveted positions could push 500k. Pretty much brain surgeon pay.

NYC is one of the highest paying construction markets in the country. Those union workers make killer pay. I use to deal with Con Edison as a client, and the people that hold the signs for traffic at construction sites can make $37 an hour. Just for holding a sign and telling pedestrians when or when not to cross. Not bad!

Skilled foremen and apprentices can make decent money, with overtime, most than your usual F500 office worker.

Pretty much laborers at high profile construction sites are making 100k+ easily.

And then you have southern Italy, my home, where anything over 12k a year is considered "living handsomely" LMFAO.

And no, our prices aren't low, at all. Used cars and most electronics are actually more expensive (and when it comes to overall costs of keeping a car, much much more expensive) than other countries.
