Agreed. I think 4WTC has risen four floors since they started floors 59 and 60. At least the glass installation has kept up.

My theory on why each side of the 20th floor has an extra window missing on each end:

The gaps on the rest of the floor are for hoists to stick out, which will be used to clad the base with the glass panels starting in 2012...

However, the extra space near the corner is to accommodate an extra hoist needed to clad the corners. The reverse slant of the corner does not allow a hoist directly above and as you near the ground the corner widens and recedes inward from the hoists above... Physics dictates that in order to pull a scaffold closer to the building you need to pull from a different leverage point.

Just my theory.

Or, they just need glass at the corners for some reason, and that's just how the spaces come out.

I'm guessing that whenever floor adding slows down, the workers are more focused on interior work ...

Good news for 2wtc/3wtc, that 80 story hotel near the WTC, and other proposals all over nyc.

The perimeter base walls are not load bearing. They'll essentially be held in place by the beams on either side of the panels and rest their weight on the floorplate underneath. The purpose of the perimeter concrete is protect the lobby from a car bomb.
