Unfortunately TalB is right. At the moment they're working on the walkway and the parkingdecks. However yesterday I saw something interresting. They've installed a piece of vertical formwork in one of the edges of the core. Hopefully it will stay there and will get some more friends (in terms of formwork, ofcourse )

Carlos from what angle or where on the site did you take that pic? It's like walking around a maze trying to get a decent angle they way fences, sheets and everything is blocked off.

You are correct!!!....most of the site is covered by that metal mesh screen....but I went to the bridge that connects to the WFC and found a clear opening!!

According to the webcam, that arrow is actually pointing away from the FT, not at it, plus that it is the pathway.

That wasn't a personal attack. More a statement of fact. 99% of the people in here will agree with me.

Anybody see the movie "Click"? I'm always enraged when people suggest twin FTs, but they looked pretty cool in that movie.

I hunted down someone with the movie and watched just to see them in it, and I actually didn't like the way it looked. I used to think It would be cool, but it just made it seem like those towers were...well, placeholders (idk any other way to describe it). I'll stick with one FT and all the others.

I love it when people from SSC argue for half a page over stupid things like if cranes can walk around.

That's why I like SSP better.

Actually humour is better than dead humour, cranes walking around is pretty good.

You and me both. Only reason I come here is because SSC is more international that SSP. But SSC is about as dumb as a box of rocks.
