They do seem to have it in high gear - that is awesome. And yes, they probably do want it to be as far along by Sept 11 as possible.

That's awesome to see level 74 already. About 910 feet tall. Getting close to passing 40 Wall Street.

81°F sounds so nice, we are getting more than 100°F daily.

And progress at the tower seems to be fastening up! I would love to see the other buildings of the complex growing upwards on this magnificent pictures.

I don't know for sure, probably around 27 feet. Each floor is 13 ft 4 in. You can't factor in the column splice length because that only counted on the 20th floor's columns. All columns since are just bolted on top of the previous floors. That should make each new column approximately two floor heights in length.

^Magnificent! Even though we know you are the photographer, SSC requests a link to the photostream in order to accomplish our agreement with the Flickr staff.

Great video, Bunky!

Conde Chooses 1 WTC Architect; Yotel's Luggage Robot Speaks

Quote:
FINANCIAL DISTRICT—The latest development in publisher Condé Nast's many plans for its new office space at 1 World Trade Center: choosing an architect! The company has chosen Gensler to design the space, according to a Condé press release. Other Gensler projects we're familiar with: the InterContinental New York Times Square and the Shanghai Tower. Neither of which tells us much about what Condé's new office space will look like. [CurbedWire Inbox]
