For some reason, it just doesn't look that good anymore to me during the day. The night pics make it look amazing though.

Have you seen Carlos' picture on SSP? The columns look taller than usual.. don't have any idea why because I thought these columns were gonna be the last normal sized ones.

EDIT: I guess they just put up three floors up this time instead of two. In Ken's pic you can see the normal spacing for 87-88, then the larger floor 89.

New steel around the core. Looks like they're ready to make another jump.

Thanks for the great closeup!

That looks like floors 87, 88, and 89. So the height should be around 1,111 feet to the column splice.

Maybe if they would just spend more time putting new steel up instead of working on the colored lighting...... http://qq.fbi1.net/A

At its current rate, this building will top out sometime in March 2012. Given another 6 months to finish the outer wall and the tower mast. That will take it to September 2012 and add in 3-4 months to finish the interior.

I guess the building will be ready by early 2013.

Pardon the interruption but, MODs, do you think you could delete the spambot posts before some poor, unfortunate soul clicks unknowingly or accidentally?
