Maybe that'll become an iconic view, like the former WTC with the Brooklyn Bridge in the foreground

Perhaps it's someone who has permission to access the site and we don't know. I'm sure there's security staff at night.

Great updates everyone!!

Floor plates getting closer to the top of the core

The new crane position scares the hell out of me though!!

Being a skyscraper crane operator must be one of the best jobs in the world, I heard some shard crane operator quoted in the paper saying that being alone up there above the whole world tends to induce spiritual experiences.

Wow. It is so easy to forget how much there is to go still. Brilliant comparison.

It's looking a but more chunky than in the render but I believ that's because the upper part is still missing.

that dark blue of the cladding makes this tower look even nicer than the renders. ive got a question though, and if anyone could answer it id appreciate it. that "shard" section at the top (the top part with just the glass), is it going to be shaded or is it going to be completely (or as close to completely) transparent?
