12 more to go (11 office and 1 mech floor). There on the 35th floor (or 44 using the new floor numbering).

On a side note, I don't believe they are numbering the mechanical floor (formerly 47th *original floor count). Meaning it will be an "invisible" floor. The new numbering of the office floors are 16-55. Then the trapezoid floors are 56-71.

The glass they're using for this thing was not what I was expecting, but I like it. It's dark from some angles, but very bright and reflective from others.

Here's the current view from NJ. We can see some of the glass now.

Very nice.

I think new steel should be going up today. Too bad the webcams aren't working.

Oops, let me take that back, it is up and running again :-)

Crap, as of this morning no new vertical steel. They are falling behind the new steel every two weeks pace.

Not true. Actually they have been averaging 2 floors every 9-10 days for the last couple of months.

from what I have seen of the last couple of months new steel goes up (for two floors) every other Thursday. It least the last 3 jumps they seem to have been very regular with that. But it didn't happen yesterday.

Could be the strike impacted things.

how beautiful

I think it would be kind of cool if they added some outdoor something on the lower roof to complete the world trade center, I mean, they gotta have something put there! In a way, 200 greenwich street and 150 greenwich street are like similar buildings because their roofs cut off towards the memorial.

They should put a lounge on the top of WTC 3 or WTC 4. No joke, it would be awesome.

New steel went up this afternoon. That's floors 36 and 37 under the old numbering. Floors 45 and 46 under the new system.
