^ Yes,Pnapp said fireproofing was the issue,thus causing the window panes to slow down.Either way,glass is going to go slow since we are about to start the mechanical floors.

Indeed, that thing is relitevely easy to assemble. I think they can easily lift and put in place one piece per day (or even more, but let's say one per day)
They just have to lift each piece, place it and then fix it with some bolts to the last.

What do you need an escalator like that for such high up?
It's normally used in buildings where a lot of people visit.
But I don't think that high there will be alot of crowd with no
observation deck, restaurant or anything else open to the public.
So what's the use of this? So the CEO in his corporate double-level suite
can travel between his office floors more easy?

HAH. When this thing finally opens, there'll be a million people filtering through the observation floors per month...

Sorry my bad. Haven't really been keeping track of this thread with all the trolls
and "build 2 towers" discussions in it. Thought it wouldn't have an observation deck.
