As the low clouds slowly lift, thin, and break up, I can see from EarthCam that the netting is being removed from the southeast face. They are also working on the base again today.

I'm sorry, but what does "squaring off" the base mean?

Well, the shape of the base is build the same as the higher part of the tower, with 8 sides. But there was a redesign so the base now must have 4 sides, so they are adding steel so that the base is square when the cladding is added.

How do you know? I don't think anyone knows these facts for sure since none of you seem to even work there

Why did they change the base design?

Several problems with the chinese glass subcontractor, the requirements for the prismatic glass were impossible to achieve on the established budget.

They will discuss it and come to a conclusion after the mast is completed as I understand it.

From what I understood from the announcement of the CTBUH they should reach the conclusion at the opening of the tower. But I'm no native speaker, so I could be wrong.

Since I'm not disclosing my sources, you've got a point in distrusting whatever I share to the forums.
