I would think so. Here is an updated snap from Sunday. This was taken exactly 14 days after my first photo, so it appears it is at about a 1-1.5 floors per week cadence.

Ha! I only just noticed that they added a second crane to this project. Looks like they may have added the crane in mid-April? Why would they wait so long for a second crane? Is that typical? Seems like most multi crane projects setup the cranes at or around the same time. Maybe that's a misconception.

The second crane is necessary because precast panels require a lot of hang time. They waited for installation to start ramping up before erecting the second crane

The pre-cast on this isn't terrible, but there is a big difference between this building and some of the RAMSA buildings that use actual limestone. That being said, RAMSA usually gets the rest of the details right, so this will definitely end up looking pretty decent when its said and done.

I dont know who shop's for materials on here but whats the cost difference between pre-cast vs. actual limestone I dont know if they go by sq foot or by the entire panel. I imagine it's quite a difference but was just wondering price.

Seems to be a pretty significant difference:

Will certain window frames (precast concrete) be painted brown like in the renderings? I thought the precast would have come in the brown color, but so far the building is uniform in its creamy color.

Do any of you have a visual of how they place these facade sheets? I'm just intereseted in the process. How exactly do they place them but at the same time keep them steady while they secure them to the body of the building? If I'm remembering correctly they are using the same process what they did for Ritz Carlton residences? I'm sure it's twice the pain in the ass if they were useing actual limestone.

I love this shot -- the reflection in 500 N LSD is so dramatic.

By floor count it looks like this one could be half way to topped out in 1-3 weeks..

There are many different ways to design the connection for a precast panel system.

Very broadly, the floor slabs and the panels both contain steel components (clips, studs, angles, etc) embedded in the concrete and linked to any reinforcing steel. The facade panel is lifted into place with a crane and the steel components are used to fasten the panel mechanically to the slab edges, using nuts and bolts. This is a relatively quick, temporary connection.

Later, the panels are adjusted and aligned, and the steel components are welded together for a permanent, inflexible connection. Panel seams are filled with some very expensive caulk that is color-matched to the panels, and windows/doors are installed in the openings to create a watertight envelope.

I love the thin profile of this building when looking east. We need more tall and thin in the city!
