Wow... I just realized, 4WTC really will have only 4 perimeter columns on each side. The Twin Towers had 57 perimeter columns (or thereabouts) on each side. I was surprised to see that 1WTC would have only 7 perimeter columns on each side (which don't appear to be any thicker than those in the Twins), but now we see 4WTC with only 4 perimeter columns on each side! I'm sure the engineers know exactly what they're doing, and that the building is still a lot stronger than the Twin Towers, it's just kinda weird actually seeing it... 4 columns per 200 foot span!

Sorry if I didn't pay attention but are these steel beams for the office floors?
And at which floor are they now, and how high is the tower at the moment?

You're seeing the office floors now. They start on the 7th. The floor with the red tower crane base plates is the 7th. Looks like they are up to the 9th floor.

Probably once it gets around the same height as 1wtc, and it gets fireproofing

Yeah, at first it seems kind of minimal, but then the old Twin Towers supported a large amount of their weight through their perimeter columns, as well as their core. I would bet that the vast majority of the weight distribution in 4WTC is directed at the core instead of the outer columns.
