He is right though. Interesting stuff gets spread all over the pages with this annoying chatter. Try to constrain yourselves,
at least reflect about the value of your post for the international and construction-minded audience.
I think it's real cute you can see 1WTC from mile 41, but frankly: not a lot of people who frequent this thread care.

Nice diagrams. You should also update 3WTC.

On the base of 1wtc, are there only 24 columns, or are there more in the core?

For example, the 20th floor, which date they reached that at, and then the 30th floor, which date did they reach that at.

That will just give me an idea on the construction pace of this building and where did it slow down.

Just my curiosity.

According to NBC news in the Kansas City, Kansas metro area this morning, the topping out beam was lifted at 8:00 AM New York time. That is what they said, even if it makes no sense to me doing this before the rest of the spandrals are in place.

News about topping out ceremonies are total chaos, take the news of 157 top out ceremony as an example, that was announced a month ago even though 157 isn't even now topped out

I called it. I think I heard them word it on the news as "At One World Trade Center workers are planning on raising the top-out beam that was signed by Barack Obama. The lift is scheduled for 8:00AM New York time." Some other news: I'm going to make six [maybe more if I feel like it] 500x500 sized renders of my model with its new cooling towers and permanent rooftop crane.
