Base cladding: Almost all netting on the East side of the base has been removed. It'll probably begin being clad next week.

Mechanical Floor Cladding: Cladding has been finished on the West, Southwest, and South sides above the mechanical floors. The Northeast side is nearing completion, and the Southeast side is beginning to go up.

I think post count is very important to him
He's getting like 50 posts every day which isn't a bad thing i suppose. He's a smart kid and loves skyscrapers and doesn't act his age thankfully. These are the people that could shape the skyscraper world for the next generation

To pinnacle height, yes


HNNG That base cladding never ceases to amaze me!

Technically it's not the true tallest yet in America, I'm gonna wait until it surpasses the tip of the Sears

Why arent the glass fins pre-folded and not just in their folded positions upon installation?

Extended fins would be hard to store, to handle and more prone to break during the installation.

I hate to beat this to death but how can we be talking about 1WTC surpassing the Sears/Willis Tower when I don't believe a decision has been made yet as to whether or not the antenna will count in the total height? From what I see so far it looks very utilitarian and not particularly like an architectural element. In fact the Sears antenna looks much more like an architectural element in this photo: http://static.picuna.com/photos/original/10347.jpg
