There's one on the north? The only *new* parapet column I see is on the southeastern quadrant.

EDIT: Scratch that, I just examined Carlos's pictures on SSP.

it looks to me like the angles are going to go up to the parapet from here? Is this true or no? Also what is the point of a 60 foot parapet? Not trying to sound like an ass i just truly dont know. Will this only be considered topped out when the cladding reaches the top of the parapet? (not including the antenna)

These columns have reached their final perimeter height, so they are about 55 to 60 feet tall.

I wish they had designed the Tower to be a little taller. It's going to be 1,000 feet shorter than the WTB. Looks good though!

Okay, Lets take a look here.
Before this jump we were at 1,313.
The steel columns that were placed today go up to the parapet.
Meaning, if you add 34 foot columns
You'd be at 1,347.
Which is not the top of the parapet.
Therefore, 55-60 foot columns were placed.

Nope. We were at 1,313. It was mistaken early on that we were at 1,334, but were not. These columns are quite obviously bigger than 34 feet to begin with.
Again, check Oties previous post and diagrams.

I've seen the 40' columns go up,and they were quite taller than the ones erected for the parapet.
