Please Check page 1696, post number 33902.
We were at 1,313........

Also, I'll quote post number 33924 on page 1697

~1,318' (~401.7m) with some core columns extending underside 104M (don't know the elevation of that mezzanine)

*Add 5'-8" (~1.72m) to the figure if you want to start measuring from the lowest, open-air, pedestrian entrance instead of the main lobby floor (Finished Main Ground Floor Level).

First of all they have a picture that shows some kind of antenna enclosure, which will actually make it a spire. Is there something new about this? have you heard anything about enclosing the antenna?

This Tower is beautiful and the antenna/spire thing has many people wishing it gets the crown it deserves! Please let us know if you have any information.

Again thanks!
NO I have not heard anything about enclosing the spire/mast. An antenna is the actual broadcasting element and they are not being installed at this time nor the transmission lines that would feed them from TV broadcast transmitters. The rendering on the ADF website is old. That contract was canceled for radome provider. I pointed you to steel fabricator so you could see what the pieces actually will look like. You have some very talented people on his site that have done renderings to show you what it will look like.

These columns cover floor 105 and the parapet.
Since these columns are 50-60 feet.
Floor 105 have 20 feet and then the parepet has it's 34.
Regardless- these columns are over 34 feet and range from 50 to 60 feet

The perimeter columns do not cover the whole integrity of the 105 floor though, they only cover a small portion of it. Most of the column belongs the the parapet.

Yes, they cover 105 and the parapet, but most of the steel covers the parapet.
My point i'm making to the other user is before this jump we were at 1,313. These columns are atleast 50 to60 feet

I might be new to the forum but i lived in New York long enough to know that this building will be one of many historic objects that will never be forgotten. Top out might be a few days or a few weeks away but thats just a guest so until that very last piece of steel is place at the top of that building i will enjoy the last few weeks of its construction.

The columns that went up are 55 feet tall. The parapet itself is just 34 feet tall. And it's amazing to see so much progress again.

Sorry Chris,I stand corrected.It's just hard to imagine such immense pieces of steel being erected like nothing.

We were at 1,313. Again, read the diagrams and post from Otie, he has insider info.


EDIT- Saw your other post. Yeah, it is hard to believe, but i can't wait for this to top.

Floor 105 will be completed as the parapet is. Horizontal beams will be placed between each of these massive beams placed (as was in the original two) to make "the roof" at 1,334 feet. No seperate beams will be placed for floor 105 contrary to some rumors/assumptions.

I'm not trying to tell figures here but, I am only trying to tell people that the perimeter parapet columns to not covers the entire 105th floor.
