I saw the same on other pictures and others skyscrapers, and somewhere is already some protection (grey colour). Do they put this later and why; and what kind of protection is this (against rusty or fire...); and why they dont do this before in some factories.

Not the most easy construction!
Pure pornography in steel V.2.0 ...
I wonder when this one really goes "vertical".

Who writes on the steel beams themselves? It looks like I saw non-English writing, a love note, equations and random numbers.

This is weathering steel. The rust is stable-- it will not rust any further-- and therefore does not need further protection against rust, which is the advantage.

This one looks extremely beautiful. The towers looks like giant precious gems. I like the design.

Yeah that's the view from the Northwest; you can't see the crown from that angle. Go look at photos of 10 HY and you'll see the same thing when viewed from the Southeast.

It's a new skyline inside the Manhattan skyline.

The amount of steel is crazy! I bet it looks like a vertical steel jungle when the height reaches three digits When is the tower going to be completed?
