Path Station ramp to Greenwich street has been removed which was located a short distance north of the south pool. Always good progress.

Is it just me, or has the project looked the same for a while now? If they plan to reach floor 32 by the end of the quarter, they may need to speed up. I don't know much about architecture, so maybe I dont know what im talking about

If they finish floor 24 by the 15th, and continue to average two floors every two weeks they'll be fine.

23rd/24th floor finished by Apr 15*. * That's generous since it's already about half finished. But counting from the 15th and 30th is just easier.
25th/26th floor - Apr 30.
27th/28th floor - May 15.
29th/30th floor - May 30.
31st/32nd floor - June 15. Keep in my they'll erect the steel up to the height of the new floors once they complete the steel and floor decking of the previous floors. So by June 1 they should be up to 32 stories in height, around 346 feet high, plus 4 feet for the splice, and it should be an even 350 feet tall.

Well, they didn't work at all this weekend (it was Easter weekend), but during last week there was a lot of progress made. Also, just today they added several columns on the north side and did a lot of the decking on the 21st floor.

Okay thank you for clarifying that, makes sense now

You can really tell in this pic how 3WFC, Goldman Sachs, and 7WTC are all basically the same exact height (3WFC is 739 feet, Goldman Sachs is 740 feet, and 7WTC is 741 feet).

Fantastic updates, thanks.

In this picture, 7WTC looks 1 dimensional - brilliant!

One thing I noticed this weekend was how floor count does not even come close to total height. Look at the Hilton in that photo above. It is 55 stories. WTC7 is 52!
