That would already make it a supertall with 302 meters or 991 feet

That'd be really nice! But when I book a dinner in February, I'll have to book for December

Not sure, probably some kind of propaganda from the fireproofing company Island International Enterprises

101 floor is a mezzanine floor + there's a core mezzanine at 102.

Where's the next row of cladding? Feels like it's been a while.

The lonely column has become a tradition of 1WTC, I'm sad it still isn't there. Especially since with it 1WTC would be a supertall (302m)

It looks like they are putting scaffolding all along the south face of the base, not just in the southeast corner. I wonder what they are doing, since this scaffolding has been up for about 2 months now.

A column is part of the building, cause it will hold floors in the future

Btw, I bet it'll be there before I know it's there. We lost a lot of contributors so good angled photos are rather rare now So hard to find out if they're adding new steel now

New steel as in building additional floors? If so they are. I can see the cranes hoisting steel for the new floor being build at the moment. I can see from my office right now
