Tower crane is pointing right at the mast right now. Could they be getting ready to install the guy wires, or do more temporary platforms need to be removed first?

No no no, I was still talking about the panels with the fins that extend outwards, 42 of those still need to be places around the entrance. The point where the Large entrance ends has already been established, all the other empty space is to still be filled with the fin panels.

All of the panels inside the red line still have to be placed.

Kinda eerie, actually. Like looking into a mirror at my own past.

The top of the spire, is just such a good design, it reflects art deco and ESB lookalike elements! Congrats with this amazing tower!

I wish the panels in the line were indented slightly, in the actual tower, to give a bit of depth to the base.

WTC Progress

Workers lower One WTC crane boom that set the final pieces of the spire which now stands a symbolic 1,776 feet high.

When do you think we'll see a new King Kong movie, 1 seems to come out every time there's a new Supertall in NY.

Hey, did they turn the beacon on?? You can see the light in all of the Earthcam shots - although, the light is pretty dim here.

When this thing is lit up, we will know it without a doubt. All we see now is the FAA, red light at the top

my guess would be that the dark blue glass is clean because it was covered by an elevator or was installed recently after the elevator was removed. The other glass is covered in dust. It should all be the same color once they clean the glass.

Yes, I also think so. This glass raw is much newer and that is why much cleaner.
