Got some shots of the 601 Bond construction site. Hard to believe the building will be taller than this crane.

Are you doing these on your own crinzema or for a company? They're pretty incredible.

Took a picture on Leonard St testing out a camera. You can see it peeking just above the rooftops.

Placed a new image for Plaza Towers on Wikipedia as well.

There's a crane way up there on yonder. 

Seriously, looks pretty cool from center city. Strange that I seemed to be the only one around at around 2:30 today.

Anyone been by 601 Bond lately? They aren't messing around. I thought they'd be doing some light survey work on the site for a while but it looks like they've excavated most of the lot and may be pouring footings / the lower level soon. i hope they put up a fence (and final renderings) soon.

I keep looking for the red tower crane sections to arrive, to try and catch the assembly.  Add to my collection. ;)

Is this assembling the crane or luring the columns? I see the forms are up for the first level. 

Joe

That's the crane that makes the crane.  Hold tight for pix...

We're giving 601 mostly a pass as far as architectural allure because it's going to be tall, right?

Actually some posts have been pretty critical.

Are we that desensitized to long diatribes from certain members about how terrible everything is?  That may not have happened here (yet), but I wouldn't call that giving the building a "pass." :)

"A lot of crane pervs out in the area today." LOL. 

Saw it going up this morning and thought "this is going to make GRDad's day!". :)

I think I've stuck my head in the sand hoping that the end result will be more refined. So far, it's working. It looks AMAZING in my head. LOL

It did! And holy crap it looks really tall amidst all of those short industrial-esque buildings.  My picture was before they had added more sections to it.

It took 5-6 hours to place the entire tower then they took a long break and topped it off around 4:30.   Here they are about 3/4 the way up and one with the cap in place to end the day.
