Someone correct me if I am wrong but the entire mode of construction now seems to have been changed. Previously they would work on a couple distinct floors at a time and so the building would always be "jumping" by increments of two floors.

Now when I look at the pictures I can't tell how much any given beam is raising the height of the building. They seem to have steel beams that span different floors and different heights at the same time. That is, maybe they currently have steel up to the 91st floor yet the new steel they then put in goes from anywhere between 89 and 93, with each beam covering different floors. In sum, instead of having splices neatly ever two floors now we have splices all over the place.

Don't know if this is true but the pics make it look that way. Is it true? And if so, what is the reason? Would it have anything to do with the floor space getting smaller?

Actually sources show that there is no sign of 432 Park Avenue being ''Approved'' status, it is still only proposed.

i said the same thing like a thousand pages back and got hated on for it i still think its a wonderful building along with the rest of the plaza but the costs i dont think are worth it considering the results of other buildings with lower costs. lets just hope some miracle happens and its done soon

So that's why they're well under way with preparation and about to start construction?

I just saw them on SSP so now that it's confirmed I can update my diagram

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i41.************/207avys.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 353 meters or 1159 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 235 meters or 771 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 196 meters or 642 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

They recently removed the shipping containers being used as changing facilities on top because of 'lack of real estate'...they need to frame in that area in order to complete the floors.
