Exactly right. One skyscraper that the financial crisis HAS had an effect on though is the Chicago Spire, which has been put on hold indefinitely until the mortgage crisis improves (which could be years). Though, I lost 100% of my interest in this project months ago due absolutely no visible progress happening in well over a year of "construction", so I couldn't care less. (That's not straying off topic TOO much!)
haha lol, keep up your american chin, well get through this

Great pictures, but you really need to give rid of your window so we don't give the reflections off it!

Well it seems like the guy may be taking those pictures from the World Financial Center, so I doubt the window could be opened.

Anyway, another section of the floor was poured today even though the northern core is behind the southern one. Once they finish working on that floor they will start working on the ground floor, but it seems like the northern core will have to go up first before they can work on the ground floor.

That's what I was going to say. I wish I could get into the WFC. Lucky guy.

Has what risen though...

I can see top floor visible is spreading around the core and now the north core is actually sinking into it.

Nah, you're about a year too late; the core first started "rising" in the area of November 2007 and the steel long before that.

I think that the floor they are working on might go over part of the northern core since both sides of the core will be symmetrical by the time they reach grade.

He wouldn't get same view unless he had a jetpack. (helicopter would be too dangerous of course)

Its only a floor away from reaching a ground level (the west side, not east side where its 2 floors away) and the white arches would be under the ground floor. But aren't the white arches suppose to be in the ground floor? I can't quite make sense of it.

They work at night on different parts. The lights have been focused on the northern part of the core a lot recently.

They've started some of their concrete pours at 3-4 AM.
