I would expect them to put up the remaining corner node parts before fully standard floors start going in.
The core has already changed shape, though the walls are not in yet. It is much smaller at the 20th floor than at the 3rd floor. It won't take on an octagonal shape untell somewhere around the 65th floor.

The construction of the 21st & 22nd floors well look almost exactly like the 20th with the corner node sections going in last.

Yea, the column splices are 3 to 4 feet above the floor beam conections, less moment stress there.

The new side beams on the South side do not appear to be red coated.

Yeah I'm happy things are moving again. the best view has to be from the FDR after the Battery Park Underpass. I hadn't seen it from there because I usually take the Brooklyn Bridge.

I dont know if anyone has asked this question, but when are they going to start with the cladding? If I'm not wrong, some towers began when they were almost completed and some of them, when they were between 10 to 40 stories high.
