Comma's can be used as valid decimal marks, we just happen to use the '.' here in the USA.

Despite the small amount of cladding, you can already tell that it's going to be high-quality, and pretty stunning IMO. Even better than the renders. Well done NY!

That's a more european way of going it! In Canada anything french is with commas. It get's confusing being bilingual I'll stick to '.' though!

Yes, in Europe we also use the dot to separate every three figures, whereas you use the comma. Too many people don't know that. Anyway, back to our topic please.

Since we have no HD Earthcam, could someone post daily update pictures here?

By the looks of it, they removed some of the glass today. Earlier today, the south face was almost to the SE corner, but by the afternoon it was removed. I wonder what's up.

From this morning.


Later in the afternoon.

Probably because they have to get the first glass floor perfect for all the others to fit right, they may have had to re-align some of it.

It sucks how the EarthCam always seems to go down when the most is happening.

Does anyone have a link to the original design finalists? Specifically Adrian Smith's design? Thanks I have been looking all over for them.

By Tectonic. I love how the glass looks in that sun. I can't wait for some full floors completed.

Standard issued with sun glasses by the Port Authority to enter the WTC area in the future, I suppose?

The collums that changed from red to grey, are they covered by concrete? Or what made them change color.

Yeah it's the spray-on fire proofing. Needs to be done before cladding goes on.
