It probably won't be elevator shafts only.

Agreed. The core will probably house all utility stuff like toilets or similar stuff. I think the area between the perimeter and the core will be exclusively for office space

Wow, the photo with the person identified for scale really demonstrates how massive this building is. That said, the core at the present area does seem to take up an excessive amount of floor space. Is this a core surrounding an inner core? So, at some point, does it step back and continue rising within a smaller core? If so... one heck of a bomb shelter design!

Yes, it will get smaller as the setbacks come.

As you can see on the picture on the first page or 3WTC Website how many setbacks their are and how much of the core is going to be cut off

Thanks for the link. That site has floorplans that tell the whole story.

The construction method kind of reminds me at the one is used at Wilshire Grand Center in L.A, except that the one in L.A. is not that huge, i wonder if those floors are going to be used as offices, the remaining area is quite small, compared with the size of the core.

It looks like parts for an external climbing cage which is odd because this crane was not supposed to jump

The crane will indeed jump and be retro-fitted with a longer boom to allow some steel erection around the core.

Initially it was supposed to erect the podium only, but since the other cranes (SW and NE) are nowhere near ready, this was done as a contingency.

Besides mechanical every floor from the podium to the roof is office space. There is 100% enough space.

Glad they thought of that and progress will continue.

If it is going to have a longer boom and it will be lifting heavier steel, they will also need a 2-fall line.

Why are the crane sections done in such small sections?

I seem to have the idea that conventionally each crane section is delivered of a certain height and to specification so that all the components are within the tower section when delivered to site. This usually allows the crane sections to just simply slot into the crane climber and become bolted up to the crane in one go, as opposed to rigging the sections into the cranes bit by bit.

So why are they not taking up this convention by breaking up the crane sections, which could otherwise be prefabricated to cut construction time?

Hey folks, time for a new diagram update. I estimate the building to be 76 meters or 249 feet tall at the moment
