The Tower's 4 spires were scrapped so now it's just 1,079 feet or almost 329m.

I always thought they were scrapped far earlier already when the height got reduced from ~380m to 357m.

It seems to me that the NE crane is already "buried" from the steel around it. Wasn't it supposed to jump? Why is it rising so slow?

And any news about the SW crane? Wasn't it supposed to be up already?

I noticed that too with the crane. The netting looks huge by the way. I remember it covering only two floors with 1 WTC & 4 WTC, but this it covers four.

3 WTC is core first build. The others were steel first. The blue netting was a cocoon while they erected the steel. Below the blue netting was about 10 floors of brown netting covering the open floors.

The Wolff crane (NE) jumped once already but only like 2 floors. Looks like it's time to jump it again.

When is the new SW crane coming?

It looks like they installed temporary supports for th SW crane's lower basket. I guess it'll be up soon.

Does anybody know how long it will be till 3WTC surpasses 4wtc setback it looks so close that's when it will really be noticeable in the skyline.

Here's a Google search with plenty of articles on how to do it.

Looking forward to the photos. Welcome to the forum.

What is the new tower going up on the far right side of this pic? Looks like it has cross-bracing.
