Local 793 business manager Mike Gallagher and business rep Jeff Hewitt toured a residential skyscraper under construction at 220 Central Park South in New York City on April 5.
The building, located in midtown Manhattan, is one of the tallest presently under construction in New York.
It was designed by American architect Robert A.M. Stern.
There are two tower cranes on site. The building will have 65 floors and include 150 units. It is now 27 floors high.
It will be 1,000 feet when completed.
The building is being developed by Vornado. Completion is expected in 2016-17.
When completed, the tower will be the tenth tallest building in New York City, slightly shorter than Four World Trade Center.
Gallagher and Hewitt toured the site with IUOE Local 14 operators working for Pumpcrete. The Local 14 members from New York are operating tower concrete pumps for the building.
A trailer pump being used at the base of the residential tower was previously used on the Freedom Tower, the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City.
The Local 14 operators included Mark Ferwerda, Mark Olcott and Ron Kirk.
Gallagher was in New York to attend a general executive board meeting of the IUOE. Hewitt was there to attend a session on business rep training.
