...I don't see any deck chairs anywhere. It's the best we know how to build. That said, the 100th aniversary of that infamous event is coming up very soon...

I hope you're right. I hope all buildings in the future will be made with this standard

And here's a pic. These floks should really clean that camera

It never stopped. In fact they completed the 75th and 76th floors in 10 days.

Impressive tower, and as you go along.

Is clearly seen in the skyline height.

The One world trade center looks more amazing each day. My brother-in-law works there and he says that they are going up at a very fast pace. Makes me proud, go New York!!!!!!

cladding passing one of the WFC buildings :-)

Can't wait until the cladding passes WTC 7. That will be a significant milestone.

Oh yeah also, its not even HDR. Not going to start a war, but I thought it would bring some variety like others said. Its all the same photos over & over, thats great but I thought I would mix it up a bit. Thats all!
They are your photos. Do whatever you want with them. All I was saying is that imo it makes great shots look kind of cheesy. They looked way overcooked so to speak, so maybe at least tone down the effect next time.

If you look at the topic title, you can see it has 108 floors. Although people will say anywhere from 105 to 110. Right now, perimeter columns are up for the 78th floor. And who was dissing Dubai? No one said anything about it.
