Nothing is out of scale, the shard is just minuscule compared to the WTC.

Does anyone know the status of the spandrels? Last thing I heard about these was 2 or 3 days ago when there were 4 left. Any progress made?
Will this be considered topped out when all the beams are installed seeing as the antenna is no longer the architectural height?

I think the spire/antenna is about to start construction. On this webcam: http://www.video-monitoring.com/construction/kpitv/

It shows the antenna/spire, or something that looks really close to it.

I think the mast isn't going to be installed until early 2013.

Concrete must reach the roof, then cooling towers,etc, don't count for the spire anytime soon yet.

Well skyscrapers often times looks different in person then in renderings. I like it how it is, but it still seems like we only half rebuilt :/ we need to patch the hole in the skyline.
