I would think the columns need to have welding complete (full strength) before they will install the climbing apparatus. I also assume they would optimize what they can build before a jump. Right now they are getting close to being like Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel built into a corner/basement. ;~)

Yep more East steel went up today....and some decking. They by all appearances are just about completely out of room to continue without a jump.

The Tower will be 1,079'. The spires that would have made it 1,170' were scrapped. Current height to the top of the core is somewhere around 500' or more...

While Ingels's tower continues to grow on me, the fact that we will finally see tower 2 rise but in a different form feels a little Shakespearian in the sense that we're getting something we've waited a very long time for but not in the way we were hoping for...
Think positively- 2WTC hasn't been built yet, so there could be some height reduction/ value engineering there as well.
This whole development is such a debacle that I have all but given up on any chances of the whole WTC complex being successful architecturally.

Looks like the climbing collar almost completely installed now....just a couple of bits left. Hopefully we see a jump over the weekend? If not sooner?

From what I see, the crane jump will be one of "only" 4 stories. Am I wrong?

Will the whole jumping operation be repeated every 4 stories all the time? It seems to me that it takes a whole week to jump 4 floors while it takes 2 weeks to build them. Does it mean that 33% of the time is devoted to jump the crane?

It's taken a whole week to assemble the jumping apparatus. Once it is completely assembled and operational, I would think an actual jumping operation would be much quicker.....no more than a few hours or a day at most.
