I think it's time to change the title to T/O

There are a few different definitions of "Topped Out". On this forum though it's customary to wait until the building reaches its full height. Lest there be confusion seeing a title proclaiming T/O when in fact its still getting taller. There will be a row of glass completing the parapet on top of the steel. We're about 13 feet shy of reaching the full 977 feet.

The glass should reach the top later this year, fall is my guess.

Is that the beginning of base cladding near the bottom left corner?

That certainly looks like some mullions going in...although I am certainly no expert.

Construction Worker Impaled in Fall at 4 World Trade Center Updated 2 hrs ago

June 26, 2012 2:58pm | By Julie Shapiro, Maya Shwayder


"LOWER MANHATTAN — A construction worker at 4 World Trade Center fell and impaled himself on a metal rod Tuesday afternoon, fire officials and the construction company said.

The 37-year-old worker was helping to build the new skyscraper at 150 Greenwich St. when he slipped and fell 4 to 5 feet about 1:20 p.m. Tuesday, an FDNY spokeswoman said.

The worker landed on a small steel rod he was carrying in a pouch, said a spokesman for Tishman Construction, the contractor on the site...."
