No, its just a sign that one of them is complete and there's less to talk about as before.

No one's sure. They may have to install the next level of core steel to anchor them securely. If that's the case it could be a couple more weeks.

If they don't need the core steel then maybe as early as next week.

This project seems to be a 21 century version of a 20th century building... They should build two of them.

They've been pouring all day on the south side of the tower. Does anyone know what exactly they are pouring, is it the walls beside the core or is it on one of the lower floors?

I think it's the core. If you notice on the cam, the north core is taller than the south core.

I'm so glad that this building is being built, and not on hold. Great Pictures, Great Progress!!!!!!!!!!
There well be refuge rooms within the core on every office floor. The vent system draws air from the top of the tower so unlike '93 the tower well not fill with smoke.

That almost works, (70+187)/13.3=19.3233. That's is the best reasoning I have herd so far.

PS: the base is 200 feet square (column centers) by 186' 8" high, not 200' high.

Is this base larger than the former world trade center?....from aerial views it looks larger than the footprints of the memorial.

Spot on.

Can anyone confirm or deny if the corner nodes need the next level of core steel to be anchored?

And the memorial pools are a little smaller, 187' square I think.

It's so frustrating watching this tower grow at a snails pace, I was in NYC 6 months ago and it's not changed that much since, anyway with the base almost finished hopefully it will rise a lot quicker, and surprise me when I come over in May.
We have the Shard U/C in London, and it's rise from basement to almost the same height as this in under a month!!
