Is this tower still known as the Steinway Tower?


#1159

I don’t think it was ever known as Steinway Tower. That was a nickname that caught on.


#1160

Really? It seems like a legit name and it fits well, I think it should be its official name. Deffinetly better than calling the tower by its address


#1161

I prefer Steinway because of the tie to NY history here in Manhattan and Astoria.


#1162

Hopefully they don’t brand it as the New York Staircase. Oh wait, that’s already a thing! (Yes, I know they’re looking for a new name for the Vessel)


#1163

What’s wrong with Vessel?


#1164

#1165

Oh I knew that. My question wasn’t at you. I just think Vessel is unique, memorable and works just fine. Why change it?


#1166

#1167

I wasn’t expecting the 88th floor to take this long, but I understand it’s because of the tuned mass damper. I expect concrete to be done in late March


#1168

Isn’t there also a transition to steel at some point near the top?


#1169

Yes, scroll up a few posts and you’ll see some information I provided about that


#1170


A visual of the future progress…again


#1171

It still quite amazes me how much is left to go on this and CPT.

#1173

Thats why we need to follow as many ‘under construction’ projects as possible, at the same time: otherwise these forums would be about as exciting as watching grass grow…hehe
