Not exactly...on the "meaty" west side yes....but not yet on the north, south, and east sides....although today ALOT of steel was set in just one day on the north and south sides.

The "podium" is the 11 story structure located west of gridline 309.7 - so yes the structural steel in this area has been completely erected.

What has not been erected is the steel in the high-rise part of tower, i.e. on the north, east and south sides of the concrete core.

Boom length and the number of falls in the line are completely independent of each other when it comes to lifting capacity. A single fall line can lift the same weight at a 10 foot radius that can at 100 foot radius, same for a 2 fall line. The capacity of the boom drops as the lift radius increases.

Lots of steel going up now on the north and south sides with the makeshift crane configuration. Still none on the East side, however. Which makes me wonder....could they not at least temporarily get a heavy crawler crane (such as that big Manitowac that was used on the early stages of Tower 1) to erect at least a few lower floors on the east side?

They could... but that won't happen. We just have to wait until everything is sorted out with the Wolff 700B tower crane so it can finally be installed at the NE corner.

The Wolff would install north/east parts of the tower and the replacement Favco at SW corner would do west/south sides.

Hey people!

I just realized you can "follow the action" that is going on on the South side of 3WTC by looking into "the big mirror" which 4WTC happens to be.

By looking at the pictures shown by earthcam

http://kerrigan.synology.me/earthcam.php?view=3wtc

It sure brought a smile to my face !

No concrete yet. Are they waiting for the rest of the floor diaphragms on the remaining sides to be installed before pouring the slabs? And are these reinforced slabs, like 1WTC?
