By GreenwichBoy, WNY. The 43rd and 44th floors have been put up quick. The decking could be done by tuesday or wednesday, and new vertical steel by friday even. Sweet!

Have you noticed how the 7WTC seems to shrink as this tower goes up?

I'm noticing that with every single building in the area. Check shots of the site before 1WTC was above ground, and note how enormous even Barclay-Vesey looked compared to now.

It will not. At the current pace, I've calculated they'll hit the 54th floor by the end of the year. Which will put it 640 feet tall (100 feet shorter than 7WTC). 1WTC should pass 7 sometime mid to late February is my guess.
