Let's see if someone will dare say "no or slow progress"

Now it is getting exciting to follow the construction of this building!

Once the large corner beams meet, which is the widest part of the tower,
It will really speed up from there.

The entire thing will probably be up to where the core steel is right now by then.

I have a similar question: by the end of this year, how many floors will be added? I believe that until then, we probably have reached the 6floor (minimum)

Donaldt Trump finally failed to prevent this "Freedom Tower" from being built...

Has he eventually accepted it or not?

All the 'tridents' are finished on that level. It will be interesting to see how they attach the next level angled pieces, since they connect two stories above. Maybe three.

1 question...

I made a little research but didn't find out much...
Now, as we can see, there are bigger beams on the outer side of the tower...The cladding goes on those beams...And those beams are conncted to the core...So that's how the tower get strenght and stability...But the question is for what is that inner layer of beams? Looks like its about 2 meters in from the outer beams...Is it for extra strenght or what? That was only logical solution to me...But I might be wrong...
Can someone help me please?

That wont be a problem, because there is a horizontal connector beam between those tridents. Have a closer look, its the same at the recent floors.

----------------

Does the lobby count as floor 1? If so, then the highest connector beams between the core and the perimeter columns are to support floor number 7 at the moment. But if the lobby is not taken into count, then they would be for floor 6.
