They have to put in the communication rings first that would not be able to be installed by tower boom being obstructed by remaining upper spire sections. meanwhile 5 star electric is busy working up the top two sections with revolving beacon and aviation beacons which is a few weeks worth of work. Then we need a few days straight of low winds to jump the tower crane, set the top sections and jump back down.

This explains why they don't lift the next mast piece which has been sitting on the temp platform for weeks. Also interesting to hear that the tower crane will jump..

I thought this for a long time! It's a pretty building, set on top of a bunker with a spike put on top to make everyone think it's really tall!

I must say that I truly love this tower. It really looks powerful and dominate IMO. I personally don't find anything ugly about this tower, even the antenna/spire/mast is growing on me.

The top of the communications ring starts to take shape.

1 wtc communication ring gives you a good sense on how tall 432 park ave is going to be by roof,but 1 wtc ring will be taller by just two feet then 432 roof.

When will they install the 12th spire piece?

Pieces 13,14,15 and 16 are the elongated ones.

And the 17th piece is the rocket ship

I thought the tower would have to jump. But I have no clue how the climber will be assembled without removing the crane body. Hopefully the custom looking towers sections of the platform crane allows the climber to be assembled around it and then moved to the top. I hope they do a generator powered beacon test on the ground, even though that would make no sense. We shall see.
