My kind of construction. ;-) Looks like they're possibly relocating a sanitary main (or rain leader) or laying some new connections for the tower utilities to connect to. Some good ol' bell & spigot piping.
Between this and the slab pour shots at the Wynn, I'm seeing lots of sexy sexy drainage piping pictures lately. CISPI is getting a chubby.

Bout time!!

Looks like they're working close to 24 hours a day here, from their latest tweet.

Part of the old roof (?}.









Looks like they are building a new column. Not sure if this is temporary (during demolition) or part of the new tower.

How many times does this make that this garage was given a facelift?

Impressive marketing video released today. Looks like they really want a tenant.

Certainly an impressive video. I love how happy the guy on the bike looks when the building starts to rise. Kind of like my face right now! Excited this thing is finally happening. Any form over the current garage is better than nothing at all.

Watched the video and realized just how massive this project is. Cannot wait to see more cranes popping up.

Cool video.

This will go a long way in drawing your eyes away from the gawdawful JFK and Center Plaza.

Both the JFK and City Hall need a good power washing.

i like it too, mainly due to the exposed, well-lit stairwells on 2 sides. The lowrise portion needs to be redeveloped into something else.

It now looks tired and out of place, but as for its architecture by itself, I like it as well. It looks best in photos of it being constructed. All that being said, it is so out of place and dated I would rather see it torn down at this point (at least the long, low building).
