it depends on where the issue is and what the fix is.

from what i understand, when it was set, it did not have bearing on as much as half of the shim packs they set.

(before you set steel, you survey for three main things, location of anchor bolts, pattern of anchor bolts, and elevation of anchor bolts for shimming and projection of the bolt through the steel. You set shims to achieve elevation and for allowing grout underneath the steel)

if the steel itself is our of square, that is not good, but i doubt thats the problem..

Exactly what I was going to say, if the steel is out of square this could be a huge issue however I suspect that is not the case and it's an issue on the tower where it is being mounted.

That said once that is corrected the rest of the pieces would go up without any issues.

Woah, that looks so weird!!! So..unused to it...

But that strip of missing cladding is so aggravating. Is there any use for it?

Ugh, I know. And to make matters worse, it's off-center.

, Yeah, but I wish they'd hurry up with the other 3 sides of the building, too.

I think you mean where the outer elevator used to be.

Yeah, but the hoist on that side only goes up to the 40th floor or so. It doesn't go up the entire length of the tower like the hoist on the eastern face.

IIRC west hoist reached up to the 36th floor, still a mistery for me how they managed to fill the gap, standard panels require a lower one to fit.

Oh and by the way, external west hoist is coming down during coming days.

Good news. I noticed yesterday on the KPI cam that they had started dismantling the roof of the shed just north of the east hoist, and was hoping that meant the hoist's days are numbered.

They removed the covers on the spire sections (at least on the tops), but now some are back.

Btw, if the CTBUH rules this antenna to be a spire it will loose all credibility in my opinion. There are already countless people (including me) who disagree with their measurement methods but I bet that if they say this is a spire that number of people will drastically grow.
I have to agre with Kanto on this 1, because if you look a Sear's it seems to dwarf, the Petronas and Nanjing Grenland just buy pure bulk.. I would love to see Sear's add another lego block and add a 2-300 foot "spire" That building is a monster compared to the forementioned.
