I assume the panels don't have to be flush against the building.

I wonder how they'll get the corners to end up looking like that?
The base cladding will be a cube, the tapered octagon edges were scrapped.

Btw, I have more pics

There's a post on the SSP forum that workers at 1wtc did not get their paychecks today and they are striking tomorrow. Anyone got more info on this? Bad news if it's true....

There are little birds talking about how the erector is significantly behind on the ironworker benefits payment and that is causing some problems.

But this is hearsay, I have no evidence to corroborate this.

I find it hard to believe that the political nature of this project would allow it to get shut down.

Oh please don't tell me that they don't pay the workers again. We had this situation in summer already. What is this PA thinking?

Yeah if you're not scared of heights, otherwise there would be a lot of this going on, in my case!

I actually am scared of heights but only if I'm standing somewhere unprotected. But if I'm protected behind a window or even outside behind a railing I'm perfectly fine with any height

How many floors will it actually have when build?
I can read the "108" in the title but afaik this is a pure marketing number. I see 105 on wikipedia and 104 at CTBUH but I think to remember from this thread that it has only about 80.
And can we change please the title of thread to the correct number?
