Very soon for sure. Although it's hard to see because they look the same as normal floors.

It looks so tall, and yet it's only one third of the final height...

Maybe it's because it's thin

Of course because it's thin! That's why I even bothered looking at the thread in the first place: to see how nice it would look after it reaches its final height... then it would look more like a stick than a fortress...

So it will be the same process when they get to that level?

#99, what do you mean by the first "opening" level? I'm not that knowledgable when it comes to this building.

It's so crazy to see how fast this is going up, i remember not that long ago i was watching them dig the foundations and start the concrete. I'm sure it will look great with the concrete nice and clean.

I remember not long ago it was just a hole in the ground. Then, I remember it being a few floors high, then I remember it being half its height right now, and now I remember it looking so tall yet so far from completion. It's not that far, it's just that it's only one third the final height.

Im sure someone else will explain it better but as I understand 432 will have 3 levels that will remain open to allow wind to flow through the building.

There is probably a technical term for these "openings"

One thing I noticed about the floor most recently completed (excluding the core) is that it looks much more grey with tons of rebar. I was thinking of suggesting the possibility we may be at one now.

There are five of them, and we've already surpassed the first one.

I think it's just that it's the newest floor constructed, and they'll do something to make it match the rest of the tower. Or it could be that the netting makes it LOOK greyer.

And we've only surpassed one pair of mech floors?

Actually, I just checked SSP, and it appears we surpassed the 2nd MEP floor (by the way, that's what they're called, #99) a few weeks ago.

MEP floor around here?

Maybe the reason for putting the glass in the floor above.

I heard that in the MEP floor, some windows have panels and some don't. Is that true?

I'm almost positive that none of them have windows.

Oh. But are the steel beams in the background supposed to be buildings? Because if they would, that'd be a pretty cool block of Manhattan.

Damn, they grow up so fast.

Seriously, I love the current speed. Hopefully they can keep it up.
