The concrete part is TO yes but concrete work is first finished when also every wing is finished.

so now will the steel section start.

only 42,3m and it will surpass the KLVY mast.This should happen this year i think.

NYC will have no problem whatsoever filling the WTC complex.

Yes steel work goes much faster than concrete. But remember that they'll still need to lift all the materials 580 meters and there's only one crane.

Top steel structures are much slower to be build.

Tag, Im sure that the steel structure will be built at ground level in modular form, and lifted bit by bit, so steel erection should be very fast.

Im surprsided that to date there are no signs of any steel fabrication near the base of the Burj?????

remember they can pout a whole level in one night with concrete, but with steel the have to hoist it up peice by peice and it may take longer. anywho, speculation aside, it will make a good change to see how this blends into the concrete and to see it get built =)
