I was banned permanently from the skyscraperpage in the summer of 2008 for noting the slowdown at the Chicago Spire site and for my "unfounded and pessimistic speculation" that the building might not be finished.

You have to watch your step at these skyscraper fan sites it seems. The moderators operate on a hair trigger.

Uh oh. The above might be considered too negative and off topic. Did I mention that NYC and Chicago are the BEST CITIES on EARTH and that the World Trade Center is going to be the best building ever built in history?

(There. That'll oughta do it.)

I think that's when it passed the Empire State Building in terms of height, becoming the tallest in the city.

That's when a beam was raised to the 103rd floor, making it 1,271 feet, taller than Empire and tallest in New York, but not topped out. That's why everyone was so excited.

If you're talking about Carlos's photos on SSP, I think the latest one (not including the southern corner node that just went up today) actually depicts 8. If you count them on the surface, it looks like 7, but one of the northwestern perimeter columns is almost perfectly blocking one of the southwestern perimeter columns at that particular angle.

His watermarks ask that the images not be reposted, unfortunately, but just examine, for example, his photo taken July 27th, 2012 7:11pm or earlier. The northernmost perimeter column on the northwestern side is blocking the northernmost perimeter column on the southwestern side in that shot. Thus, there were actually 8 parapet columns in that shot, and 9 total as of this moment.
