ok I don't know what you mean by that but tower four should finish first. Unless tower 1 gets the ESB treatment I don't see that happening.

not perhaps not mean anything by it but I worried about nothing more than good that they can finish first and just wondering because here in Argentina most of our skyscrapers certainly have no adequate infrastructure to withstand an attack

Why wasn't the Bankers Trust/ Duetche Bank Building simply repaired?

At the very least they could have stripped it down to a skeleton and and reused.

it was unable to be salvaged, read about it, it suffered burning, external damage from falling metal, it was actually used for i think about a year afterward, but there were too many problems to continue using it, including asbestos in the building

By GreenwichBoy, WNY, 12-24-09. For some reason the boom has been removed on the new tower crane. I wonder what's up?

I wish they would add two more floors and bring the total height to 1001 feet.

On the rbz cam, you can see the boom has been reattached to the 2nd tower crane. Looks like they're back in business.

Hard to tell, but on the RGZ webcam it looks like the first flooring pieces have been laid out on the above-ground steel on the south side of the tower.

Yes they are putting floor parts in on the one side they have already put up. I wonder if they are going to go higher on that side before finishing the rest of the perimeter columns?
