The PA is taking a new round of questions from the public regarding 1WTC's construction on their website.

hmmm...

Does anyone know the dimensions of the tower now, and how close to a cube it is? because it looks like it is about as high as it is wide.

To look at the latest picture, it's hard to believe how intricate the construction is below grade level. One would never know looking at the site today.

It nearly is a perfect 200 ft cube. I think height wise it's just shy of 200'. Probably 190-195' high. The floor is 200'x 200'.

Of the USA's major cities, ISTR that the ones in Texas are at the least risk from earthquakes, also the MStP area. Chicago is at relatively minor risk and has a 3 to 4 or so shaking every few years (one hit them a couple of weeks ago). When the next 'big one' hits the New Madrid zone, I would fully expect some tall-building sway and minor damage to smaller buildings (some cracked walls/foundations, fallen chimneys, tipped bookshelves, etc) in Chicago. Also, taller buildings are much more earthquake-worthy than shorter ones.

The cities at greatest risk are all of the ones along the west coast, plus Memphis, TN and Saint Louis, MO.

Steel trucks lining up for off-loading this morning! Hopefully this is the beginning of weekly growth!

Is there any possibility the high def cam will be angled up as the construction rises?

I've got a question to Zen or anybody else who could answer this: when will the core start to change shape?

I would expect them to put up the remaining corner node parts before fully standard floors start going in.

As for the cam, its main purpose is to show the construction of the memorial museum and plaza. I guess they could raise it a few degrees or even better, set up a dedicated 1WTC cam, but I doubt Earthcam is willing to spend that much. After all, 1WTC is also visible from the street, the memorial is not.

I hope this question doesn't sounds childish or naive (and I did re-check all the posts for the past 7 or 8 pages) ... but does anyone know the actual Floor Count by now?

The first of the office section core steel is in. It looks like three floors at one time.

I was thinking the same thing earlier, when the core columns looked big enough for three floors, but now that they have the beams in place it's definitely just two floors at a time. The columns rise a bit further to the connection points but just a few feet.

Looking at the first core steel above the base. The steel in the foreground is of WTC 4.
