There's new steel up today and it looks like they've almost got the cladding up to the setback.

Here it is again with better light.

@thejacko5: It's not the lighting, it looks like shiny, unpainted steel in the full size photo.

By the looks of it, the column by the tower crane reaches up to the 72nd floor (932' 10"/284m). Add several feet for the column splice, we're probably looking at a height around ~937 ft/285.5m.

and where will the parapet begin in relation to the mechanical floors?

I've updated my diagram with the latest progress

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i49.************/14mtmr.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 404 meters or 1324 feet out of 419 meters or 1374 feet
4WTC = Approximately 286 meters or 937 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 268 meters or 878 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 419 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Love this tower, but cladding is so boring.
