It's just an guess I guess. But without whether delays a very accurate one if you ask me.

So now we probably won't see another segment until a week or two some of you said?

Section #9 is now up. Sections #10-12 have been on site for as long as the rest, so I don't see why they (and the temp stairs next to them) won't go up soon. The crane is tall enough for them, I think.

^ I thought #9 was the last one,so if you're right on the pieces being at the base,than we'll probably see them rise tomorrow,weather permitting.After #12,the process will halt for a week or less.

In less than two weeks, all of the 18 spire segments are scheduled to have been shipped via flatbed trailers to the World Trade Center site, and during the three weeks or so after that they’ll be hoisted to the top of the skyscraper and installed, Floyd said. But that process will unfold at the whim of Mother Nature, with winds at the top required to be under 15 mph before work can proceed.

Epic...

What about the sections higher than the cranes, especially the beacon. Are the cranes even tall enough to reach that height?

It is stated on the Wikipedia article that a plan to built a new restaurant near the top of One World Trade Center was abandoned as "logistically too difficult". Is this true? 'Cause this hasn't been confirmed by any other sources.

This question has been asked here many times and from the answers I have seen this is it: They will have some smaller restaurants/food bars at the observation deck, and a full restaurant similar to Windows on the world is still possible.

We approach the "countdown" to the top!

It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna WTC ONE Spire)!

From what I can see from my building the bottom section up 456m is correct so far.

The tower looks amazing. The antenna is really going to pop! It's quite wide!

Yes, the great Europe, is a "classic"! Very appropriate for the moment approaching!

Btw, how wide is the spire actually? Is the second to last part (part 16) wide enough for a person. About the size of the Burj Khalifa spire.
