Yes. That's the parking ramp spiral, or at least the beginnings of it.

Hey, great pictures!

Can anyone fill me in on how high they are taking the cement structure and if they are going to use steel?

I have watched since day one and will be here 4 years from now still amazed at this tower. It is the best tower the U.S has developed in many years

Trump seems to be rising in a different way than most. The Core is only 1 floor ahead. I wonder why?

The parking levels will take a while since they are so massive. After that the project will hopefully speed up a little.

The scaffolding/temp. support is being used to support the decking/forms to pour the concrete floor plates. So until the building gets thin enough to be able to use a slip form system, they will keep the temp. shoring. Most likely for the entire large base section.

Whoa!!! I haven't checked this thread in a while either. This is coming up pretty nicely. I know the Donald has to be on their ass making sure the builders/developers are getting their shit done quickly and correctly.

That is quit a bit of scaffolding being used. Looks like that is taking the most time per floor.
