Yes, it's only on the first level. However, corner cross bracing very similar to 3WTC's will go almost 450 m up.

Actually there will be 7 X's going up the sides of the buildings, one of them is done and portions for the next X are going up. The top of the last X will stop at ~525m.

I don't claim to be a construction guru, but I imagine the I-beams are the massive one's on the corners? The steel on this sucker does look like it can survive a nuke, like a forumer said on the previous pg.

Actually, the aren't I-beams. The ones with a top in the shape of an "I" are I beams. Ta-dah!

You realize CNTower made that diagram, don't you? He's the guy to ask any questions to about the building's design.

I didn't make that, the developers did. Though mine diagram on SSP looks very alike, because I used multiple pictures including that picture as references to make mines rather detailed. Though there are many difference between the 2.

But thanks for mistaking my work for professional work!

Many differences? They look identical other than coloring. It's definitely my favorite of your diagrams.

Awesome diagram, whoever made it,, thanks L.A.F.2. for the feedback, I thought for sure the thick beams was what you were referring to. Talk about some thick steel.

So if the diagrams are correct apparently x-bracings will go to the top, they just won't be visible from outside except the first one.

some decent structure diagrams here at SSP
probably the best one:

(actually, it seems to have been quoted from SSC))

The middle render makes it pretty clear what is going on with the structure.

Hmm, I would've expected it to be an X not just a large slanted beam, because of this stress movement picture,

But now that I look at the construction photos clearly it appear the building will indeed end up having the zig zag pattern in MatTheTubaGuy photo.

Not sure if posted before:



This tower eats 1wtc for breakfast I always believed that old twins were better thanks to the details of the facade. And this tower finally offers something close to the quality of twins design-wise at least, but with much stronger structure. I really like this tower a lot
