Butler,

I assume that the building is still on the transfer floor . . can you confirm this? Also, I'd really appreciate it if you or someone knowledgeable would speak to the engineering feats that a transfer floor requires. I've always wondered what made it so time-intensive vis-a-vis the rest of the building.

Thanks.

will the smaller square footage of the high floors

-and-

the height of lifting materials towards the top of tower..

cancel each other out and keep the rate of consturction on the upper reaches similiar to what we've been experiencing on the lower ones

-or-

will the balance tip towards faster rate of growth due to the smaller square footage really makes for quicker construction

??????????????????

it would go faster, cuz it's a smaller floorplate. since it take a floor a week, it should be cut down to about 5 days after the last setback occurs
