Extell Unveils Crane for 80-Story Tower at South Street Development Site
This image has been archived or removed.
Down at the Extell waterfront site, the big guns are ready for the next phase. As previously reported, pile-driving activity for the eighty-story tower just concluded, with foundation work not too far behind.
Rebar tentacles – like alien fingertips- are now clearly visible above the plywood perimeter. Yet the real eyesore obstruction is the new tower crane posted at the southwest section of the development site. The equipment was assembled last week, but will presumably rise with the overall height of the One Manhattan Square superstructure. It’s gonna be a long few years – completion date for the market-rate monolith is 2019, a year after the “poor door” dwelling debuts.
Meanwhile, Extell is owning up to its responsibility regarding infrastructural damage to the adjacent residential building at 82 Rutgers. Inspectors are conducting apartment “tours” for assessments in the aftermath of nine-plus months of earth-shattering excavation work. The developer will reportedly foot the bill for repair costs, including cracks, crumbling, doorway tune-ups, etc.
