its actually really different.

this is a core first building. 7 wtc and 4 wtc and 1 wtc all had steel+ rebar cores that were poured after the steel passed by.

Core will rise up to the 14th floor, then steel will follow.

After being the way it was for so long, watching the core go vertical again is a breath of fresh air.

I think 7 stories are already complete with steel and they are working on the walls to the 9th floor now. So the core would rise 5 more floors above the highest point of the core now.

As i understood till now, core is the toughest element of building. It also supports and bears whole building. Regarding this, i really don't understand how core can be built without steel. Maybe i didn't understood what you meant in your posts, did you mean that core will be built without steel at all, only with concrete? This would be impossible, because concrete it self doesn't have any supporting capability. Maybe the core in this case will be built different than in case of it's previous neighbours, but without steel at all, i don't think it's possible.

You get a few whiffs of piss from time to time, but hey that's called life. Aquablue did indeed get banned. I for one was a bit sorry to see him go, despite the fact that he annoyed the piss out of me.

Does anyone know when they're actually gonna get this crane up? 5 more floors of core before steel, fine. But when's the crane come??
