I believe the columns are 2 floors tall and they are a continuation of the new perimeter columns they started putting up a few days ago. I'm glad to see that they mean the height jump seriously, LOL

These are mechanical floors that are 21-23 feet tall each. So they're only two floors in height.

I know the feeling, once you've seen the tallest in China and ME, this one seems almost quaint.

Alan - Will there be more steel put in tomorrow or were those 17 the last ones? When will they raise the cocoon? Thanks for your answers in advance, it is great having you on this forum.

Black cladding wouldn't fit the aesthetic of the area at all IMO. It would make the tower stick out like a sore thumb amidst the other buildings, unlike how it is currently where it compliments the stylizations of its neighbors and nicely tapers to a centralized focus point.

I've seen the SWFC in person, it didn't seem much more than this with another 200 feet or so stacked on, The Shanghai Tower and Burj Kalifa go way above 1WTC though, those would be something else to see.
