I was just looking at the Trump Webcam and came across that there is light inside the tower. Seems like a waist of energy to keep the lights on if no one is home... Does construction continue at night too?

It has just reached the second transfer floor. Don't expect this baby to start growing for two months.

A couple of reasons why I think it may not take as long as the last transfer floor. The floor area is smaller. The workers have already completed the first transfer floor so they are more experienced in knowing what they are doing. Just a theory but hopefully I am right. The last one was around three months I think?

Actually, there is a guy on SSP (JuniorReb, I believe) that works on the tower that said that this next transfer floor will take approx. 61 days to complete.

I'm just interested what do they do so special that it takes 10x~ more time to complete a mech floor than a normal floor. the concrete should set approx the same time as normal floor so where the is the extra x9 that is needed.

Reconfiguration? they need to reconfig all the core, all the pillars, the walls, the beams, the everything. just to settle the uncoming 4X (dunno how many floors on this section)floors

The building will stop rising for 2 months for sure then. I cannot accept this.

Indeed this is terrible news. I love heading up to the river every week and seeing that thing rise a little more- no reason for me to do that for 2 months now.

Well, it's a necessary evil. But there's some "good" news with that - in two months it will be June. Then they will have have many months of fairly good construction weather so this thing should rise considerably.

ditto. I was basically joking when I made my "unacceptable" comment, although I do hate waiting 2 months. So with the start of summer (meteorological), so shall start again the rise of Trump.

Unfortunately, this one isn't going to be rising much for the time being as they complete the second transfer floor.
