It's clear that the lobby/podium is going to be structural steel (the anchor plates for the columns are visible), but is it not still possible that they throw down a transfer slab and switch to reinforced concrete for the tower section? We've seen that kind of construction before in Toronto (one example is the condo at Dundas/University, and I believe the new Four Season also has concrete over a steel podium in some areas).While shooting the site today, I noticed it was at grade for 3/4 of it and this tower is going to be Structural Steel framing. Since this is a climbing core by itself and can see anchors in the concrete deck, it has to be a steel building. It's odd seeing steel framing when most are concrete these day like 16 York St, One York and so on. The 2 BA towers were steel, with some steel in the EY building. Even 88 Atlanta 5 story building is steel framing.
