It has a separate jump, so i'll assume that the parapet will contain of steel.
But it won't need, floor beams, decking, etc. Considering that it's open.
True. That could easily be erected in 1-3 days

I just checked out the TorchCam over at EarthCam. At first glance the crane looked like an antenna, and I thought, "What?"

More glass cladding has been put up. I believe we're past the 1000ft mark?

The stairs that are covered in blue netting on the outside of the building. They rise as the tower itself rises. Figure it out. That picture certainly doesn't show them raising part of the construction elevator.

Don't tell me to figure it out, it was pretty obvious that your comment didn't make sense without further details.

that's correct. The movie was filmed months ago, so 1 WTC is shorter

It did make sense, at least for the rest of us.

"for the rest of us" because you know every last detail right? I know just as much about this tower as most people here do, but when something like that is said its a bit questioning. I'm not here to start arguments but when we're talking about the rising glass then referring to stairs, it's a little strange and confusing. Nice picture too

Simply writing "stairs" is not enough information to those who don't know what stairs your talking about. Some do, others might not.
Regardless, this floor seems to be taking a long time.

Exactly, I wasn't sure if he meant stairs for interior work like emergency stairs which seemed absurd or the outer stairs for the workers.
