Great news. The KPI TV WTC web cam was pointed up to now fully capture WTC 4 again. So we should have a very clear shop of this as it progresses to full completion :-)

So, what do we all think will happen first- Glass to reach set back first or tower to top out?

With the two cranes working again, I think this one will definately top out before 1 WTC.. glass is progressing quite steadily, so I guess in about 5 weeks setback should be reached.. soon we see mechanical floor cladding again like in the lower part?!

The best part about 4WTC that I am beginning to grasp is the way it will reflect the gradient colors and light on the horizon, across the river. This is totally unique to 4WTC with its enormous west facing sheer wall. If this guy doesn't end up being the pinnacle of glass-box architecture, it will be close.

I said it before, and I'll say it again: 4WTC is probably the most underrated near- supertall tower on this forum. Being constantly in the shadow of the mighty 1WTC is a pain in the ass.

4WTC's design is simple, yet classy. And its the cladding is just superb. All in all a great addition to the New York skyline.

I complete agree. If this was in my city, it would be huge and the centre of attention!

btw, can someone confirm if we only have 2 more steel jumps to go before the roof slab? and then 3-storey parapet up to 977 ft? thanks!

I think there'll be three crane jumps left.

There are four more office floors left, so two jumps for that. Then another for the mech floor.
