Summer is almost done. And they say the spire will be done by summer? When is summer officially over? September, no?

So we should see some very exciting things happening within the next coupe weeks

If base glass is going to be installed in October, why haven't they started to square the base off?

Delays again, i guess.

The Woolworth Building is an entirely different building, they're both beautiful.

try 1913
It's true though, today masterpieces like the woolworth building are a rarity. Compared to it, 1 WTC is a glass clad monstrosity.

Monstrosity?

in reference to it's huge size. Guess that wasn't a good way of putting it

I suppose that all depends on your definition of topping out. Once those last four pieces of steel are in place (how long could that seriously take? a day?), it will be topped out enough for me.

The official topping-out ceremony will probably be announced shortly before the spiretenna is erected, probably since they want to pitch it as worthy of inclusion into the architectural height.

Ever closer to the base cladding. Nice catch, and thanks for the screencaps. Some of us don't have Silverlight at work.

Yeah, it really depends on the person, since I'm not counting the antenna, I'll say next week, but since they are saying that the building will be 1,776 I guess they will wait for the antenna.

If concrete reaches the roof by then, then maybe?

I'm not sure how soon it'll be complete but the sooner thr better! When both towers are complete there should be a ton more life at the world trade center site. I hope this can help attract the much needed tenants for towers 2 and 3
