Well I didnt know, I joined in june, so I didnt know that was already brought up... I have been following the WTC progress since 2006, but not the forums..

These columns reach the final perimeter structure height. Stainless steel parapet is a few inches (maybe a foot) above the top of columns.

It's an exterior beam that connects two perimeter columns, when worked together with the filler beams they carry the floor and transfer the loads to the perimeter columns, these have anchors to support also the curtain wall.
