I explained, well attempted to, a few days ago. To make it short, the parapet is vertical. All beams on floor 105 are angled, except for the corner nodes. They are bent, but it is hard to see.

Here is the 105th floor steel from the side (Dots are the sky):
...../
..../
.../
../
./
/

Thus, a bent beam must be placed (Dots are the sky):
.....|
.....|
...../
..../
.../
../
./
/

Make sense??

I think that beam is bent because it is, well, a beam, not a column. It is probably for the top slab on which the antenna and the cooling towers will be housed

Btw, to the post above by LAF2, I don't think the perimeter columns will be that much bent. A bit bent, yes, but not that much

Thank you Kanto. I was just looking back at the two beams close up, and it got me wondering. They are slightly bent, but not nearly as much as this one. I was about to ask what they were but you already had posted.

So you are saying this could help anchor the antenna/spire?

So the parapet will not have the same slope as the slanted part of the building?
Will it look like this? (Very exaggerated)

The other tower has finished growing, and this one will stop growing in a few days. Now onto the 3rd tower!

If you go look at Carlos' latest picture over at SSP, you can slightly see the angled column of the corner node.

YES! I can't wait till this tops out(hopefully this coming week?!) and I really hope that Tower 3 is really going ahead like people are saying.

I think it is a floor beam for the top slab (core "roof"). They probably have to use different shapes of the beams so that they are compatible with the top of the core. To support the antenna I can imagine that the "roof" of the core must be very thick in order to resist the huge shear load that will be placed on it. Though I might be wrong. It is just my guess. Otie or Spectre surely know more than I do, so I'd like to hear their opinions

I like how construction went on this tower.
After it tops out,we get to see the following.
Assembly of the antenna.
Glass rise
Base glass.
Can't get much better than this.

it should be because the other columns for the parapet are slanted.

By angled do you mean slanted or bent?

According to this picture its bent.

Thanks

I discovered this place a while back after struggling to find somewhere to go to replace that sense of the unknown and follow the rebuilding effort. I've never gone anywhere else since. Time and again, I find what I hope to and so much more posted in this thread. The images shared here are awe-inspiring. And while I cannot think of a better recent example than here of that saying about a picture's worth, the conversation is pretty meaningful too. The way the curious, the guessers, and the experts, the optimistic, the realists, and the occasional downers and whiners, all come together here really is something. So for all the lurkers quietly admiring this place and all its contributors, thank you. You've lifted the cloud and it's beautiful.

Saw DKR and man were their many scenes with 1WTC,as it seems 1 Libert Plaza was the Wayne Enterprise Building.

What an amazing movie.
