Well, that's why I mentioned dominance, not the height. Although 432 will be slightly taller to the roof, 1WTC will keep its dominance over the other Manhattan skyscrapers in the skyline as it's much more massive and also has a spire on top.

Here's my stop-motion video of 432's climb, updated as of this morning. This now shows just over a year's worth of progress since it first came into view from my apartment on 7/26/2013. As Marcatio pointed out, the progress made in the last month has been absolutely remarkable:

...and here are a couple shots of my current view:

I love the angle in this second one. It's the type of angle I like to go for in my own photography work.

And yet another jump!

That would put the core at 1240 ft / 378 m. just 10 ft shy of ESB, which it would pass by next jump...

It is crazy, they just raised the crane on the 23rd, and it seems they already catch it again!

The floor slab of the first mechanical floor in the last set is now being pored. Not sure what level the core is at this point.

I think it is indeed at 1224.5 ft/ 373 m.
I made this with two pictures, one is from july 24th (after they made the first jump post crane raise) and the other is from today.
Look that the growth of the core is exactly two floors of the building (comparing it with the floors at the corner at the perimeter it is slightly less than two floors, but those floors are nearer than the core, so they must appear larger, comparing it with the border, at about the same distance, it is exactly the height of two floors) and remember that the the climbing system thing at the top of the building is taller than a floor.




In your picture, I think that the core was already a bit raised, comparing with the picture of the 24th, it is a bit taller.

Indeed you are correct, and comparing that difference with the most recent jump (earlier today), you have proved me wrong so thank you!
good to see someone else is on the ball

It's hard to tell now from the angle of the cameras, but I recon we will now only see a partial core rise until the crane jumps again

That was insanely quick to say that the crane only jumped the other week!

Only 48m to go!

The core made a full rise, not partial. Please do not forget, that now the vantage point for the camera at the Bloomberg Building on Lexington Avenue is now lower than the elevation of the top of the exterior climbing form and top of the core form, therefore giving the impression of a partial rise.

Another point is that the crane tower centerline is not aligned with the corner edge of the core form, as depicted, but rather located midway along the south portion of the floor slab.

I have included the diagram below. I have added the component nomenclature showing the locations atop the building.

P2000 - That shot to me shows 432 dethroning the ESB; the other buildings are leaving the ESB behind and crowding around the new king: 432PA, the sun acting as like a halo

It would be really nice to get a new Kanto diagram showing progress of this building compared to others. It's been a long time since we've seen one.

This tower looks awesome on the skyline. If, as some suggest, it's now about 375m, it will be amazing to see the skyline when it is joined by 30 HY and One Vanerbilt whose roofs also will be about 375m, let alone, Nordstrom, which will be taller.
