That reminds me of the Bionicles I used to play with when I was 12. You could combine three of them into one uber Bionicle

Btw, did I already say how I absolutely love sunsets

Did you read my edited post? I said you were correct after all. No hard feelings either way. I admit that I was most likely wrong.

As for the staging, you thought that I meant they were going to stage all of them up there? Even when I thought this wasn't the bottom that wasn't what I said. I was just going by what the other man on the site told WNY. I think he may have misconstrued the delivery of the last piece (next Tuesday?) with the installation of the first piece. The first piece has now been hoisted up to the platform, but that 7 feet thick slab of concrete on the roof is going to need some time to cure before they start doing anything else, right? That is my assumption.

I'm going to have an aneurysm. Even when I thought the piece in question was the bottom I didn't say they were going to plop every single piece up top.

Anyway, like you said I also think this is the bottom piece due to the design. No other piece "fits" the design if we go by the 3 diagrams I have in front of me. I admitted I was wrong and you/Voodoo were correct in my previous post.

I'm not usually one to complain about renders, but holy moley what were they thinking? It isn't exactly hard to find models, site plans, and other renders! They threw in some weird 3/4 WTC hybrid on that.

The syntax was odd, yes. I meant to say the last piece delivered will be 1A and will be hoisted next week. Not the last piece to be lifted.

Of course there's always a chance Irish is mistaken as well. That does look like the base section that we see in the diagrams, both in terms of design and size. Upon further reflection I think Voodoo is correct and it is the base section. It's too big to be #7, which is disappointing because now I realize just how spindly this thing will be.

Does anyone have an estimated guess as to when the glass should reach the parapet? April? May?

Just one thing I noticed: 3WTC will be 1,171 feet to the pinnacle instead of 1,240.

And as for your question about the roof height of 1WTC: It's 1,334 feet/ 406.6 metres.

Just a ? of your video,, will that big "Clover top thing that stands some 30-40 ft above the roof", that their setting it on,,, is that a permanant part of the bld? Or will the 1st piece of ant. sit on the roof itself, not standing on the (clover table like thing)..Is the clover thing(sorry I keep calling it cloverlike thing,, but isthat what people refer to as the "Doghouse"?..The clover type piece with the orange saftey netting material, is what I'm referring to,, is that Permanant or just there until the antennae is complete?
