yeah I saw that the view from the earthcam had been adjusted because of the tower's growing height. the downside is that 7wtc is no longer visible, so we lose the sense of scale it gave to the rest of 1wtc.

I also am looking forward to seeing the glass installation resume. apparently it will continue again on April 16?

I believe it has to do with how the podium glass is installed - some had to be left out to access the areas needed to complete that installation. (If memory serves.)

Which leaves it just a few feet shy of ESB.

It's not going to reach roof height by Earth Day (Apr. 22) like originally intended because of "strong winds" back in January.

That's a shame, but indeed that was a pretty long time on-hold.

So, I guess the question to ask is when will it reach roof height then?

Just to save the inevitable disappointment, I say mid-June when it will be topped off.

On one of the webcams this morning it showed a worker painting or spraying something gray onto one of the jumbo columns near the base. Presumably this is setting them up for cladding later?
