The Freedom Tower looks amazing so far. Isnt it scheduled for mid-2013? If so, it looks like it will be completed ahead of schedule

Mind the interior works, the six months which the spire will take, the base cladding, and the surrounding area of the tower, which has to be finished before an opening, and the rest of the cladding.

I am just wondering at what pace will construction go after the last office floor is done will they continued to do four floors a month, for instance the 91 floor will be 30 feet and the 92 floor will be 18.7 feet that's 48.7 feet in just two weeks and to me that rate seems unlikely.

Well, I'm no engineering expert but I'd say there will be some minor delays

There will be some delays, when they reconfigure the floors above the last office floor. After that, i astimate, if they use one stealbeam for the whole length of the floor's height, they won't need much more time to build a floor. For example floor 91, with the given 30 feet figure, the time they need to place a single column is the same they need for a shorter one, maybe slightly more. So the ~50feet in 2 weeks are highly likely. I hope my answer is understandable enough.

Loving it, I wonder how it would look if they chose to use the same facade as on the Trump Tower in Chicago.

Not as good as the choosen one. The actual one gives it a simple, clean and iconic look, and enhances the towers shape. While a trumplike facade would add to much details (vertical and horizontal lines), and distract from the geometry the tower has.

Good answer, although there are some points to clear it up: although these columns will be lighter compared to the ones at the 20th floor, they will be larger and heavier. If one crane can't lift a single column, then both cranes will work together, taking longer to lift all the materials to the top. Also you need to consider that winter is comming, this tower is getting taller and winds are being a major problem. I'd say the pace of 1 floor per week will change to 1 floor per 2 weeks.
