Caisson Installation Underway at Site of Future Brooklyn Supertall
Quote:
JDS Development is evidently moving ahead with constructing Brooklyn's first supertall, a 73-storey tower set to rise above the landmarked Brooklyn Dime Savings Bank. The developer, who has left indelible marks on the New York cityscape, posted a brief video on Instagram last week showing the installation of massive steel caissons, a necessary step to stabilize the 325-metre-tall tower's foundation.

I believe it to be the same, but worth looking at again.

It has that futuristic neo art-deco look that is unique to New York - complementing the old brown buildings surrounding it.

This might be my favorite building being built, period. I like the building, but in the context of the location, it is perfect.

I wish the people that started threads would actually take the time to update them with the most recent renderings on the title page.

After scrolling through multiple pages to find one, this is a nice Gotham style tower.

the angle of that shot makes the excavator's arm look like a cannon.
Fire away, but don't hit the facade

I haven't heard from this one in a while so I decided to go by earlier today and check it out myself. It doesn't look like too much is really going on, but I'll share anyway:

Because they don't need/ want to.
The reason to make a deep excavation is to acomadate a large subterranean instalation, usually used for parking. If they don't want or need a large parking facility and neither they need the underground for other porpouse ( such as Central Park Tower, that uses its large basement mostly for the Nordstrom store use)
In this case it seems they only need like two subterranean levels, and that is all they are excavating. They could as well do zero excavation and do all the pilling directly from ground level, if they didn't want or need any subterranan level, as is the case with many Jersey City towers, that put all its parking facilities above ground, I think because of it low lying situation prone to flooding.

I was just wondering because 138 Willoughby, just a couple of blocks away already has a much deeper excavation for a shorter building. Is there any progress beyond what's shown on the last pic?
