Going back to the floor numbering, lowermanhattan.info says we're already above floor 91.. others stated some pages before that Kanto's pic below is right.. so what is correct?

*The following information was last updated on December 9, 2011

- Facade installation is now above floor 67
- Tower steel is now above floor 91. It is expected to top out in the first quarter of 2012.
- Concrete is now being installed above floor 84

The Glass adds a really nice ethereal quality to it. That and the angle the facades slope up at make this appear to be a genuinely massive crystal shard from space !

They've messed with the numbers, the current steel is at 90th (1130' 8" above the main lobby floor), or to the splices at ~1140'.

Welcome to SSC!

They average about a floor a week for the glass.

Why the windows are green? According to pictures on this topic, the windows are blue.

Because it's a rendering from a year ago. The facade was probably still TBD.
