It has been over five months since we last checked in on the progress of 3 World Trade Center. At the end of August, the glass was nearly halfway up the supertall tower. Since then, it has come much closer to the top.
On Saturday, four concrete pumps descended on a web of rebar to conduct the first pour for the foundation of One Vanderbilt, a 58-story, 1.7-million-square-foot commercial tower under construction adjacent to Grand Central Terminal in Midtown East. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits have the 1,401-foot-tall tower measuring 1,755,814 square feet.
A major step forward for the New York City skyline was taken on Tuesday morning. Elected officials joined developers to celebrate the official groundbreaking for One Vanderbilt.
