There's not enough floor height to promote another crane jump. They'll either jump to the 20th floor if there's enough space, or to the next floor that they'll start sometime this week.

But I do like that the tower is squared out this morning. Things have finally caught up.

This is basically the first time the building has been fully squared out since the north core got its first cage steel.

Maybe the weather has slowed them down. I don't see any red steel, or brown core steel prepped for installation. You would think they would complete the final two 'levels' of the base, then work on those for a while while preparing for the standard office levels.

Uh, that is exactly what they will do. Bad weather = no steel, since they're not allowed to erect it in the rain.

Wow the Port Authority on their Flickr Page says that Freedom is at the 5th floor and that it will be at the 47th floor by the next anniversary of 9/11

One full floor and 2 mezzanines. Or 2 more core steel column lifts to get to the 20th. Or 2 perimeter column lifts plus the revers of the 3rd floor branching.

PS: the 20th floor isn't normal, but the 21st on up is.
