Your welcome, Im trying to do a 1 year comparason shorty, but first i want to note something.

They added 6 rows of glass in one month, but now 3 rows of glass in only 1 week! So that may mean that they are speeding things up alot, and will get up to 10 rows of glass by july! And i think they only need like 20 more floors with glass.. So I would say the glass will be complete (Again excluding lobby) by August.

And where are his sources for that information? He probably got it from the Obama visiting the World Trade Center Site and how it said there is a preview of the topping out ceremony but not the actual topping out.....

It will most definetely not take until July to erect the topping out columns don't worry lol, they are scheduled to go up in the next week, we are looking at topping out in the next 7-10 days, probably a few extra but regardless we will be topped out this month.

So just to clarify, when might the official topping out ceremony happen? Seems like the PA would want to let the media know, because it will be a pretty big deal...Will it be on June 14, at the Obama visit? But I thought topping out meant the parapet, rather than the top of the steel? Don't see how they could get the parapet up in only a week? Unless they mean the topping out will be when the parapet's first beam is installed?

Well, they celebrated the WTC becoming taller than the ESB with just one column... so who really knows?

That's not true, you probably got that "official" from SSP. They are only beginning the first beam if the parapet on Flag Day hence why the said Obama will be there for the *preview* of topping out. Topping out is when the last beam of steel is put into place.

The ironworkers on top (my husband included) were told an 'official topping out ceremony will take place on June 14th'...they've been working 10hr days and are working both days this weekend.
