I think thats a third spandrel beam or parapet beam. It doesn't look like a triplecolumn.

EDIT - My bad! I didn't see it behind the elevator shaft. I was looking at the beam being raised.

And yes, NYSkyline117, they are.

So this will put us at 12/16 if i'm not mistaken.

I'll miss watching the steel rise.
But atleast we get to watch the glass rise, base glass, and antenna.

wow thanks, can't wait to see this done.

And as for how long it takes for the cranes to lift, about 8-10 minutes at current height, more time for a tandem pick

Can you confirm that the middle perimeter column on the southeastern side has been installed?

EDIT: I think I see it lying next to the base. It's the only one that looks like a perimeter column.
