Wow. Imagine they could put the original 4 corner columns back exactly where they were to mark the four corners of the waterfalls. That would be spectacular! And much deeper than the current plan.

B3 - piętro zakończenia kolumny, w tym przypadku to piętro podziemne.

CC - Core Columns
1001 - Placement of column sequence, where 1000 denotes row. In case of WTC2 this is eastern row. Rows 500 and 1000 are key rows for both towers' core constructions.
B - Tower
B3 - Floor on which is column's top ending, here it's undeground floor.

In buildings, towers like WTC B with an number (B3 exmble) its indeed underground floor, 3 floors below...

The above plan was really helpful, to understand in what level works have reached in WTC1. Almost in 2nd floor

I don't think they will put any more beams until north core steel work will catch up to south core. That require north crane to jump twice, then steel work, then resume work on beams. My guess estimate: 4-8 weeks

The camera might be down. It is slightly windy. And a hurricane will be passing near by, so there will be high winds this weekend.

And also word on the street is that the north core crane is supposed to jump this weekend.

That would be exciting to see...

Too bad something as simple as a webcam has to break all the time. It IS at the cutting edge of technology =-)

It looks like they started the installation for the waterfall equipment on the north pool.

Jep, they need them for the north core's crane to jump, exactly the same parts, which are fixing the south core's crane.

The webcam shows that parts of two of the remaining eight Calatrava arches are lying on the future Fulton Street! Think they will be installed soon at the eastern end of the already installed ones.
