Roofing is gone except for the steel plates. Also exterior clad and windows are coming down

It doesn’t look any different to me. I see a full roof still in place.

Day 5


#49

They removed a dumpster from the roof?


#50

That too, but like I said, they got rid of tiles on the roof an the small antenna


#51

Oh I see. I had to blow it way up to notice, but the roof texture is quite different. They did get rid of a few layers. That wasn’t clear to me without zooming way in.


#52

Yea, plus they have a few chalk lines layer on the small and big roof, I’m expecting cutting be next week


#53

You have a great eye for detail Thomas. I also didnt notice the difference until i zoomed way in. ( also when you said you saw the concrete pour at 125 greenwich. I was like “what!? I dont see anything”. But sure enough it was true.).

Cheers,

It’s such an insanely complicated site… there’s so much going on below grade that fits together like an intricate puzzle. These are just three levels… it goes deeper!
