Yep it is definately centered! Amazing progress so far on the spire. Still wondering if they are going to paint it or coat it with something to protect from the elements, or if the material itself is weather-proof.

I was told the mast WON'T get any type of coating, since the steel is already galvanized.

How will they attach the bolts on the next piece without raising the platform,, Climbing?

Thanks to you all for the clarification. Silly me.

The antenna doesn't look to bad.

Here's a picture of the Twins from nearly the same angle, probably in the same place, back in 1998. Kinda eerie.

Chapelo, that's quite a shot you took. Did you wait for the sun to shine through onto the WTC for the picture? That seems to be why the towers stand out so much.

Interesting to compare what has changed and what has stayed the same.

That slotted glass makes all the difference. Makes it look much taller than before. Thinner, too.

Looks like some glass progress was made today, despite the weather. A few slotted panes have appeared on the SE side.

Tell ya this tower will look 10x better/bigger when the glass reaches the top it will transform it... still not sure about this mast though don't like the walk ways

.... now it's not getting a coating cos it's galvanized but on some of the close up's of the antenna when they was shipping it in you could see surface rust....?

A perfect example why people should date their pics sometimes creates confusion.
