You don't know that for sure(you're gonna take the word from 1 forumer, where no one else has mentioned a thing of it being "off centered") I would believe with "professionals, probably the best in the world" then the time and work about "2 weeks" before they set the damn thing. I wouldn't believe anything from 1 user.. unless someone posts a real article or a briefing from a supervisor,don't worry about a damn thng from until that actually happens., wait to get the real news before having the forum panic.

Just look at the photo. It's closer to the left side, and it's supposed to be, because that couldn't be avoided in this case. The center of this side is between the line of missing panes and the vertical line of panes adjacent to the spaces on the right. Nevertheless, it still doesn't look so hot.

Too be honest that is extremely unecessary to bring up. That is such a minor thing to worry about plus the building is too beautiful to even notice it

The east hoist will remain up several weeks until Thyssenkrupp finishes installation, test and inspection of high rise elevator banks (one bank to the skylobby and another above), I believe these intern elevators won't be on time to assist Benson crew for curtain wall, but maybe for interior finishes like bathroom work)
West hoist is no longer in service since low rise elevator bank is now running.

Yeah, it was just becoming faded. It'll look just like it did when it was built with a rich black coat on now.

So far One World Trade Center can be seen from 45-55 miles on clear days. A great figure for all of the tri state and Pennsylvania to see

I think there is a miscommunication here.
LAF2 was talking about the elevator hoist hole in the cladding which is clearly visible that it's off-center, not about the spire.
