No, seriously, it will probably be awhile; not until construction is at least uniformly higher all the way around. East side steel still has lots of catching up to do.

So in the latest photo, the NW corner of the core, where they put that column, has had all construction materials removed from it, including the climbing formwork apparatus. What happens next?

I believe it is more for architectural aesthetics more so than for actual structural integrity. Though I'm sure it serves some purpose for retaining additional rigidness and strength.

Whatever happened to the climbing mechanism for the Wolf crane? it seem's like they are running behind in their crane installation.

Will 3WTC actually have greenery on the large terrace as depicted in the latest renders? Or are the trees and greenery just to make it look more appealing in the renders?

Could anyone explain why it seems that these two floors look significantly shorter then the rest?

Just curious, it might have been asked before, but why aren't the floorplates progressing evenly around the building?

Perhaps this has been asked before, but isn't that core huge compared to the usable square feet outside it?

I know that 1WTC has an exceptionally strong core. But here it seems as if the core is twice as wide as the metal construction around. That doesn't leave much room for billable office space?

No, it's petty average; 45 feet from the core to perimeter. 1 WTC is about the same.

Took a long time for the East crane to be placed.

Yep, East side steel is playing catch-up. Now they need to get the climbing mechanism installed on that East side (wolff) crane or they're gonna fall behind again.
