Hi Charles.

Not sure what your talking about but the progress is pretty clear to me.

In Nord's post above we can see all 4 cranes have been raised. They have put up a number of the next double level columns (levels 31 and 32). The structure is above the floor of level 33, only 2 levels below the third belt truss (levels 35 and 36).

The cranes should be higher in the diagram since they've just been raised.

Culwulla thanks for the diagram, I always wondered what's the roof height of these two buildings. Now I finally know the answer

Well, for me it'll have the title far longer since its roof is taller

If you don't have anything nice to say then keep it to yourself and troll somewhere else. I'm sick of you bigots.

Have you seen the stuff that kid says on the WTC threads?

I do not want him on this thread. This is my favorite tower going up and I don't want my experience watching it grow ruined by him.

I think it was more about his ongoing talking about roof height vs. spire height. (He started this already in the 1WTC thread)
