Yup, always about 10 floors behind the steel..

Thanks for the photos.
Thanks Otie..I knew it was too weird for this video to look like the last one..

Sorry about that. Here is one that actually is from yesterday. I'm going to have to check to see where else I did that.



I tried using a shorter lens (200mm) this time.

Actually, the next section of columns at the corners will be two columns. That is the whole point of the corner nodes, transition from two to one then one to two.

The current top of steel is 728' 10" the next lift will bring it to 746' 8" or 5' 8" taller than #7. Plus the column splice, just add 4 feet.

DinoVabec, your telling us that your going to be renting the space where the resturant was going to be placed. If so, how much are they going to be charging you. I mean to live at Tower 1 WTC is going to be pricey.
