I don't know exactly when the perimeter columns well be extended, there is much to be done on the north side, not just the core. The PA tends to be conservative on dates so maybe we'll see columns going up this summer.

As far as the core steel goes it's a drop in the bucket compared to the perimeter columns. What's up so far is less than 200 tons, compare that to the next section of the perimeter columns that weigh in at over 32 tons each, 6 per Tower face. Plates are in blue, beams are in red.(Second from the left)

Then there are the branching connections at the 3rd floor, massive !

Lots going on today. They are pouring the north core, erecting more steel over the south core, are starting to take down the foundation of the revamped temporary PATH entrance and are supposed to be putting up a new tower crane over WTC4.

Don't know if for you it's the same (I am not in the building field so probably I can't fully appreciate developments) but for me it's the first time that I can see so evidents developments on the FT, week after week.

And I'm checking this since 3 years. Now we're going up! .

yey they finally starting to pour north core but I don't think they will put new cranes this weekend. I detect no activity on WTC4 today.

...and even still, the Sears Tower has a much taller roof height (1386' F.T. versus 1451' S.T.)
Even if the spire of the FT will be taller, I think that it is fair to say that the Sears Tower is more imposing than the Freedom Tower will be.

Traitor lol with out it spire chrysler building isn't over a 1000 feet. And Twin towers where more imposing then the sears tower could ever hope to be. Not picking any fights but the sear tower is by far the ugly piece of crap I've ever see. So yes the freedom tower will be the tallest because the spire counts.

Antennas don't count. The antenna of the north tower.

cmmn, this spire vs roof discussion should be settled by now. For me though personally, the roof height looks more appropriate. E.g Federation tower is taller than sears tower with the giraffe spire.

well the "more imposing" debate is also quite relative... even the Woolworth would look very imposing in let's say Albany today, while in NY u can hardly see it anymore

You mean the 792 feet masterpiece of lower Mahattan. It was the tallest building in the world into 1930. And woolworths the 15 tallest in the city, it's pretty hard for it to get lost.

...in Baltimore it would be the tallest by 263 feet. So yes it is still quite imposing.
