I doubt that it is, but those columns look like they could be part of the roof and parapet.
It def looks taller than 20 feet.

I built cn tower, esb, petronas towers, willis/sears, and shanghai financial building. and burj khalifa.

In my twin towers, you pull the lever, there is and explosion, and then cows jump out of the windows.

Well if they're not at the top of the parapet yet, they're very freakin' close.

I prefer 1wtc pictures from a 45 degree angle except when I want to see progress on the perimeter steel

Question You Guys.
Steel is obviously much higher than 1,334, but that's where the steel meets.
Confussed?

I know! I'm assuming that since the steel reaches the top a month from today and the concrete on Sept. 11, spire construction should be started soon thereafter. That is, if the PA stays on schedule. They tend to try harder as 9/11 comes around the corner every year, so it's plausible.

Why would it dance? I wouldn't celebrate if a thread had to be destroyed because of trolls.

And about the steel, the parapet is much more complex than a regular steel floor, so it will take longer. We'll also presumably be working on the glass and concrete as well.
