Equilateral Octagon

It just struck me. At around 8oo feet up, this building is going to be an equilateral octagon. I can't believe that has not occurred to me before.

BeanHead,

You are the best! Those are exactly the shots I was hoping to see today. Especially the closeup of the corner beam showing how the top of it begins it's division into two. Awesome!

Thank you!

Great News Folks! The answers from www.wtcprogress.com regarding One World Trade Center are now on there. According to Lynda Tollner, program director in the World Trade Center Construction Department with design and construction responsibilities for One World Trade Center, she projects the Tower will reach between the 55th and 60 Floors by the end of 2010 and it will have a total of 105 Floors. So feel free to examine some of the questions and answers.

Will the core start rising above the steel now? Or, will the core and steel be constructed successively, one floor at a time rather?

Just interested to know, seeing as London Bridge Tower's core shot up 20 floors and then the steelwork was erected...

^ The core will always be slightly below the steel.
