They have just been installed now! And a third one has just arrived, even if there is not spot left to mount it a the moment.

The Crane parts also disappeared, maybe we are going to see the jump today.

the last picture from onn shows how massive the steel columns are in comparison with a man. The thickness of the steel amazes me.

They were stockpiling steel for the north core late today. That steel will probably have to go up first, since the crane is anchored to it. The jump will probably come later this week.

When they did the south core they jumped it twice. First to the top of the concrete, then they installed the steel framework, then they jumped the crane again up onto the steel. They will probably do the same thing here, since they can't install the steel until the top part of the crane is above the level of the steel.

Sí, la Freedom Tower aparece ser diferente de lo que el resto de al skyline de Nueva York, pero mira alrededor de la ciudad y usted verá un número cada vez mayor de torres de cristal.

P.S. Esto thread es en inglés.

Ever since the original WTC was built, downtown has been a hotspot for contemporary towers. Glassy towers are simply the latest trend.

It means they are going to move the base of the crane, or the top of the crane up, in this case it is the base of the crane. They use jacks to lift it to desired level, then secure it again. Self-building tower cranes have a jig they position lifts the cab & top part so they can lift another tower segment in. THe tower in question is not a self-build crane.

If you haven't been around for a while, the Earthcam has been redone. Take a look.

Now that's just getting to a point of trolling.

Anyway, awesome to see the north core crane jump. Looks like we'll be seeing some steel go up pretty soon.
