I doubt we'll see that kind of covering on this tower. China seems to require many of their towers u/c to have that hideous looking green cocoon safety netting. But that's not a requirement in the US. Some towers do opt to add a protective netting at the top of their towers (ie. Beekman Place).

Hey MODs, can you please update first post of this thread with completion date, and all same questions that many SSC members kept asking. That would be helpful for them and I know many others are annoyed by same questions again and over again. Thanks!

I'm not really sure but if you look at the webcam, it looks like some more small steel columns went up on top.

Looking at the crane (LOMMA) and the columns, especially vertical ones, i wonder the crane its "outside" of the line limit of those vertical columns, right? Because if its inside, how they could complete the columns around this part of WTC1?

It's not avalible to the public. But check the trash cans out on the streets around Tishman's office at 212 Broadway.

I guess he means this one http://rebuildgroundzero.org/webcam/rgz_000.jpg
Unfortunately it only shows a part of 1WTC.

I was already wondering about the same thing you asked, from some images it looks like the crane is too close to the building to construct the whole western part. However, I could imagine that they extend the basis of the crane a little bit on the northern part after the ground level is poured there, so that the crane can move back a little to construct the entire western side. Just a guess, maybe someone knows more about it?
