I seriously doubt that. It hasn't been confirmed either way, but I find it very hard to believe that there would be a plastic cover and that it would still be there after three weeks.

Wow maybe at 700-800 feet I could see this work of art for the first time, the same way I saw the original WTC everyday & night. I need to get some binoculars so I could have a more detailed view of it.

The cladding is looking good so far.

Renderings almost never do the final result enough justice, but renderings are only meant to give us a good idea of what the finished structure will look like.

It's exceedingly rare that I've seen a rendering around here that even approached the full beauty captured in any average photograph taken of the finished structure.

Early 2012. There is still a lot of equipment to install in the mechanical levels.

It is odd. Floors 20 through 30 are randomly colored, floors 31-33 are all blue, and then it switches to mostly yellow with some blue in one corner.

It's incredible. I spent four days without access to the topic, and when I return, I'm astounded by the great change that occurred in a short time. The glass is rising very fast, and I think now this will be the speed will go up.
