Only four more parapet beams to go until the building is topped out! The missing beams are the two on either side of the north corner node, and the two on either side of the south corner node.

haven't heard anything about a topping-out ceremony, so i'm guessing that will happen when the "spire" goes up.

I doubt it. It probably won't top until later this week or next Monday.

Remember when 4wtc, topped? They announced it a few days in advance.

I lowered the North crane back down because it seemed really awkward and impossible to stabilize.

I never really liked that thick fat cladding that they had planned, but it looked much better than the thin antenna that we have now.
It would be nice if they made a thinner cladding. Why wasn't this idea proposed?

They wouldn't have a topping out tommorow. Why would they give such sudden notice on the topping out of such a monumental skyscraper?

They're erecting the doghouses (temporary structures that will allow the cranes jump above the roof slab).

Oh. so that means this whole week, the cranes can't lift anything until they have been jacked up?

how long does it take to jack up the crane?

Hey everyone please check out my new YouTube Channel. It contains news videos as well as old videos of the construction of 1 World Trade Center as well as some other buildings. I show how the skyline looks like from a distance in many videos. I still have to upload a lot more older videos on my channel, but again I will do some videos soon, in fact I did a couple recently hope everyone enjoys. Will upload new videos soon.
