There's at least one horizontal beam in place above the mech floor.

ok, so if I understand the picture above correctly the east side stays the same as does the north side. But the west side now goes from the north west corner to something along the south east corner?

Is that how it works?

Anyways, are we clear of the mechanical floors for a while so normal construction speed can pick back up?

If you think of the corners it's more clear. All three corners remain the same except the NW corner is now moved east to halfway between the NE and NW corners.


High Rise Floor Plan: Floors 48 - 63 (34,000 RSF)


Low and Mid Rise Floor Plan: Floors 7 - 46 (44,000 RSF)

I think so. Barring some bad weather, I think these two floors could be largely done around Christmas. We should see the first couple columns for floors 59 and 60 before New Years.

I think top out is a real possibility either late March or early April.

Hey folks, I have a new diagram which marks the recent progress

Roof height used below!



1WTC = 347 meters or 1138 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 227 meters or 745 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 184 meters or 605 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground
entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Looks like the steel that's gone up in the last couple of days are the core columns for the setback. Perimeter columns should be up shortly

Might be, but hopefully they don't spend too much time with this process.

It looks like there are two floors worth of exterior steel (vertical and horizontal beams) up on the south and east facades, but the one that will really highlight the shape change will be the western wall. I don't see anything for the north or west sides yet.
