Well in a few short years, that earthcam isn't going to matter, because that big son of a bitch is going to dominate the skyline. (Tower #1 or unofficialy "the Tower of Freedom")

Floors 2 through 6 in the base and floors 91 through 93 and 103 and 104 and the roof, floor 105.

If you were to expand that to "any floor where a major part of the floor is equipment for the MEP systems of the building" then the answer is 21. ( this does not include any level above the roof)

If you were to count every floor where part of the floor area is taken up by MEP equipment than one would have to count every floor. (fan rooms, water tanks etc.)

Also, the end of the MTVA deal does NOT mean there well be no broadcast equipment in the tower, only that there well be no TV broadcast equipment.

PS: many of the mechanical floors have windows.

so floors 91-93 have windows? that's good, vents would have been a bit worse

The earthcam doesn't suck when it's actually up!

I think this last month has seen the most visible progress to date.

I wonder how much longer the 16000 on the east side will be able to help with the project. Steel should start rising beyond it's reach soon.

In this photo, i noticed those small silver columns which part of them are in the lobby and the floor above in that part of 1WTC (in the middle of those there that guy). What are those, for the future cladding?

Thank you Earthcam. I hope this HD cam stays up and working. It also keeps this site less likely to fall into political BS, since we can all see the progress anytime we want, and then talk about it!

Not 100% sure, but I don't think so yet.

The horizontal silver line near the top of the lobby is the edge of the second floor, which does not extend all the way to the outside of the building.

The vertical posts appear to be light poles attached to the end of the trailer in the foreground of the shot. It's just a trick of perspective that makes them look like part of the building. Check out this shot from a different angle.

WOOOOOOOW, just a min. ago all you saw was the core. Now its surrounded by steel. You can really see how big this building is going to be. "Gigantic".... Now imagine next yr from this time. They should be at least be around the 40-50 floor by then. Look how the fast the Beekman Tower has gown this yr alone. That tower should be finished by the end of this yr.. (topoff)!

YES! I feel like adding 50,000 dancing bananas and other happy icons to this post, but I will refrain.

I hope the local photographers don't forget about the core and can manage to get zoomed-in closeup shots of it as it progresses. Lighting will be tough now with the floors above blocking the sun.

I didn't say that, there well be vents on those floors, but they well blend in. Like the base they well have a curtain wall in front of the vents so visually they well look almost like the rest of the tower.
