Maybe it just seems that way from the picture; if it is indeed slanted, it is supposed to be that way.

The beams were slanted on the earthcam since they were placed.

you lot mean those beams are slanted for these diagonal steel at the base?



How did they exactly measure at what degree angle the steel beam has to lean to the side?

I think its a photo of the older version.

Here is a render of the UC design. You can see that the corners are slanted. The slanted beams are for the corners.

It looks like they are prepping the southern core for another pour in the next few days. The only reason I say this is that the formwork around the southern core seems to be upright as opposed to leaning over at an angle when it is first raised.

Could be, a week ago there were a lot of workers placing rebar in the core. Personally I haven't noticed any movement in its forms, but thats probably I'm too fascinated by the placement of the coated rebar for the floorslab

It makes sense, but doesn't the partner beam for the corner have to slant as well? It doesn't at the moment.

Yesterday's concrete pour, why didn't they pour it further down? (from webcam view)

It doesn't even look like they laid steel rebar in it.

Does that yesterday's pour touch the southern core or looks like there's gap there.

What are they building west of the core between the road and the building site? They made some kind of frame today, it's clearly visible on the Earthcam.

judging the amount of steel it looks like a bridge. Maybe for the 9W underpass they have to dig between the FT and the WFC?

religion is equally as 'knowledgeable' as atheism is--they're both beliefs, so the words 'fraud' and 'mistake' have no relevance--
not trying to get off subject, but when your tagline is that loud, you open the doors

Any special reason this tower is to be two floors shorter than the original WTCs? Just curious...
