U mean this?



Yeah, now I understand, the columns meet at the bottom of the parapet, not on top of it

I read that article before, i know now that it is almost certain that the radome enclosure will not be added to the antenna,but there are still certain criterias that 1 wtc antenna still could be counted to its additional height,so as i said before Lets wait until the official ruling and not our individual bias.

I am so confused... Could someone highlight where we are? (And the 2 'mystery' white steel) on this blank diagram?

Thanks!

Based on that diagram, those 40 foot columns will be placed all around except where the columns meet.( the triangles) They probably will place 20 foot columns there, and another 20-30 foot column on top. Look at the diagram.

We're now slightly below the spandrel beam in the middle of the parapet at a height of 414 meters or 1359 feet. I have updated my diagram with the latest progress. From now on the link to my diagram together with the numbers will be in my signature so that it is easier to find it and one doesn't have to scroll through the forum

Can you draw what we have so far on the 'blank' diagram I posted? That will help me a bit more. Thanks!

Anyone else going over the summer and looking forward to it?

This will be the 3rd time I've seen One World Trade under construction... July '09, September '10 and August '12. Hopefully it will be topped out by the time I see it next month!
Im not going this summer, but instead in the fall (October '12). And it wont be my 3rd time, but my 2nd time in NYC (First being April '07).

So to clear up the confusion, I used Paint to mark the newly installed columns as Red.

So correct me if I am wrong, but is this where the current height of the building is?

Yes, that's the general assumption at this point.

I think you have the two steel in the wrong spot? Cause on the real picture a few posts above, It shows the steel on a different 'triangle'. Here is my attempt at a diagram. The red represents what we HAVE. The blue represents what we DON'T HAVE YET.

At the very least put Otie's name underneath every renendering you use.

Chibears, you have it exactly right according to the view from New York Harbor. The majority of the steel is at floor 104, but the two steel beams are above floor 105 and halfway up the parapet.

Either earthcam is down and they are giving us a backup image, or they took down those 2 steel thingy's on the top (Dont know what they are called :p)
This is really rather odd...

Yes, I can just make out the steel directly to the left of the left crane and in between the two cranes.
