I think that the portal placed today on the north side of the Oculus is actually the centrepiece portal (N 0) according to the blueprint Otie provided some months ago...

Absolutely amazing how much progress there has been on the superstructure in just one month!

Does anyone know what these new pieces are? Shims of some sort?

So exciting! They could finish the upper portals tomorrow if they really want to! Can't wait to start seeing these rafters go up...the thing is pretty huge in person I'm in awe every time I pass!

The things in the red boxes are the metal things in between portals used for construction workers to stand on as the place transition segments

I'd like to take an opportunity to thank any and everybody that figured how to get a link to the rest of us so we could see the (soon to be) completion of the Hub. Just think how disappointing it would have been if we had missed these last weeks of progress.

My hat is off to you.

+1 That's certainly the easiest option for everybody. These huge pictures are even difficult to look at the overall site on laptop screens.

+1 I guess most of us check the direct links with the ultra HD image regularly anyway, so that there is no need to insert the full size images in the thread all the time, especially for those who live somewhere without a speedy internet connection..

As someone who now lives in Valencia, Spain (birthplace of Santiago Calatrava and home to his amazing City of Arts and Sciences) I appreciate that some thought is being given to those of us without a speedy internet connection.

Also appreciate the speed of construction. None of his projects in Valencia ever went up this quickly, especially the Agora, which looks a bit like the WTC Hub, but never got its "wings".
