Not to take away from the top-out frenzy...but wouldn't it be a spandrel beam? I wonder if they will have the traditional tree?

At their current pace, it took them 3 Days to install the 2 parapet columns and 1 node steel.

Since there are 12 parapet columns and 4 node steels.

3 Days - 2 Parapet columns and 1 node steel
6 Days - 4 Parapet columns and 2 node steel
9 Days - 6 Parapet columns and 3 node steel
12 Days- 8 Parapet columns and 4 node steel
15 Days-12 Parapet columns
18 Days- Spandrels Beams

So starting from July 16th, 18 Working Days from now will be August 9th, when I am assuming the official topping out will occur.

Yeah? That's a different tune than you were singing not too long ago. Did something change?

Two cranes on top of One World Trade Center working together to lift the steel for the building’s parapet.

Don't bother with trying to predict schedules like this. It never works out that way.

You don't know that they'll keep that pace, and I doubt they will. Look at how quickly 4 WTC's parapet went up

Huge picture!

I believe that that is the corner node(?) because the other 2 big columns for the parapet were tilted because of the tapering of the building and the corner node is on the vertical part of the building and the parapet(which is slanted), so it must be bent.

Correct me if Im wrong.

This is only a regular beam, just like the first two to top out. A corner node would have a triplecolumn/trident.

Why arent the other ones bent?

(I know, but in the picture the beam could have blocked the triplecolumn/trident)
