It's absolutely fascinating watching the construction of a skyscraper's core.

I didn't realise that core has risen so much already!

The crane will need to jump soon at this rate!

The climbing cage was delivered last week so it should be soon when they will jump a crane.

Not much longer until transition happens to the "tower" portion and mechanical sections, so progress will be slowing down significantly in a little bit.

3 more immediately once tower portion begins. Those in the podium are strictly for Transit Hub infrastructure.

For those that didn't already know, this is using Doka as the formwork contractor.

What I really like about this building is that it actually has interesting character. I like the bold, commanding and sleek shinning industrial look. I especially like the exposed silver framework. Retro cool in a smooth and cold way.

This was my favorite New WTC tower but the glass looks cheap though.

Lots of construction flood lights west side of Tower 3 and on the current floor.

There's a crane there that definitely was not there a few hours ago, so I would assume something is happening tonight/early tomorrow.
