Yup, you're right. 1 in each corner. I'm sorry that I used wrong words to describe it, I forgot to add that they'll be just in the corners

I've been touring Downtown Brooklyn and Pine Street for the past hour on Google Maps, so I figured I'll see if there's any more progress, and we've added another whole page and a corner node.

It's all good Kanto, I'm glad to see the progress happening so quickly.

1. They're using special anchors for concrete called halfen connections, not sure what type of halfen they're using though.

2. Yes.

No, somewhere at the middle of parapet. My model is based on the previous structural design, meaning that my renderings of the top depict a whole different thing than what's currently being built.

Does this diagram only show steel, and are there only 24 columns supporting the base or are there more not shown?
