I was in Inchon recently and even it might be in the running. Pyongyang (I am told) has a much taller skyline than Boston, so probably a good relocation spot for height boosters.It says U.S. in the article. Otherwise we'd also be including Calgary, Edmonton, and then heading over to Europe for London, Moscow, St Petersburg...
Montreal has 1 cheater building considered taller than 678', but in actuality it has a ridiculous side spire that shouldn't count a lick. The roof is 650's and its otherwise tallest is 673'.
Those are South of NYC so don't qualify. However... Add Frankfurt, Warsaw, Milan, Paris, and Wroclaw.I was in Inchon recently and even it might be in the running. Pyongyang (I am told) has a much taller skyline than Boston, so probably a good relocation spot for height boosters.
I'm confused. They're pouring concrete that looks to be on parking level -1 based on recent pics from @hubcrawler . I don't understand how they can continue to excavate when already pouring the concrete slab.Top-Down Construction. I'll bet the guys down there appreciate a roof during the cold months. Or maybe not.

Welp the core is finally rising and the columns are around ground level... were gettin there. Pretty soon itll start rising.
Yes, for the rest of the lower levels, that makes sense, but for the core, it seems to me as if that would have to be built from the bottom up. There's a lot of force going into and down that core when this thing gets built. Having it float/be underpinned seems like quite a challenge/nightmare.^^They'll excavate/scoop it out via precision handiwork, pour more slab/s--and continue downward--while building out the columns below grade to their full size.
"The columns below grade are not yet at their full width...."
You can be confident the considerably extensive load bearing structure will be fabricated below grade for some months--
while the super structure above slowly creeps ahead. At some point--the time saving measures will become evident.
I think of this as two projects - the unbuilt vision of Tommy's Tower and the Millennium Tower IV we're getting. That one has actually been pretty smooth sailing once the BPDA announced bidding for the garage.Not gonna lie, I still can't believe this is really happening.
