A pic showing new core columns should become reality before the end of the week

Looks like steel height for floors 90 and 91. I'll want to see some more angles to confirm though.

It'll be confirmed when we see the tapering section, look like it is coming closer together, on top. When it comes together to make a pointed shape on top.

Tower 1 is up to the 90th floor (1,130' 8") and some extra feet added in there for the column splice. The two floors they just finished were 87 & 88. However, some of the steel reached up to the 89th floor and now the perimeter columns extend to floor 90. If these floors go quick because they are still office and possibly mechanical too, it's safe to say we should hit the 92nd floor by years end or (1,181' 8"). I was hoping for it to top 1,200' but there is still time so anything is possible.

It was floors 87-88 they just finished right? because 89 and 90 are still offices so that must be what they just installed today correct?

Spectre, why did you delete your height data? Was it wrong? I can see 2 long columns on the PA cam so there has been a height jump but how tall is the building right now?
