He's suggesting it takes up only part of floor 105 and and the parapet. So that would be beginning around 1,323.5 feet and ending at the top of the parapet. (Correct me if I am wrong CN)

Whats so confusing about it? LAF2 Understands it. I'm just trying to say that how can that small portion of the column on the 105th floor be 20ft tall? while the upper portion is 34ft tall? That is just disproportional. The column does not reach to the start of the 105 floor.

Yah that's what i'm trying to get at LAF2.

This all makes sense now. Since the bend in the triplecolumn beam starts about 15 feet up as we discussed earlier (just below 1,334), it would make sense for the straight beams to begin there, approximately at 1,328 feet to accumulate for the difference in angle of the corner nodes and the rest of the parapet.

The parapet columns start at ~1,325' and end at ~1368'. So call them 43' tall columns.

Elevations from Main Ground Floor.

Looks like half of the parapet columns now stand, yes?

TWO CORNER NODES are at the base of the Tower right now! I can see one on the North side and one on the South side! You can see them in the earthcam "Tower 1 base" image.

http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/worldtradecenter/.

I would save and post an image capture, but I don't yet know how to post a picture in these threads yet.

They already built the observation deck. It's not on the roof.

Judging by pictures and posts at SSP, yesterday 5 columns went up and there are now 7 up. It has also been confirmed that there are 2 corner nodes at the base: One on the Southern end and another on the Northern end as WeatherRad pointed out.

Sorry, I believe it is 1,797 as Otie said several pages back. But don't worry, we've all got our minds on American history, and in 1787 was the first signing of the Constitution.
