got a closer look today from the One Liberty Observation Deck, looks like a little bit of activity - some welding going on about half way up the hotel portion, saw maybe 5 workers in total spread around though nothing on the roof level. Not the greatest pictures but with the binoculars they have mounted up there you can get a pretty detailed view of everything & from what I could see it looks like they're welding some beams that fall somewhere between each floor presumably to attach the windows to. It looks like they're working from the top down, there are maybe 4 sets of these.

Did they top this one off today, save the spire? I looked at it and it seems to me the last top structural beam has been placed.

The roof level was topped off in January. There have been several columns placed on the west end of the building where the cooling tower/lantern will be if that's what you're referring to?

'Tis indeed. I'm hoping they get at least part of the cooling towers up before the NFL draft, but that is probably far-fetched.

There have been lots of rumours about why construction slowed to a crawl once they got the glass and fireproofing to the bottom of the hotel section. Although this is nothing like FMC's design (with steel transitioning to concrete), I get the impression that mixed use projects have "transition" issues in general when moving from one section to the next.

I thought I saw steel cross-bracing being constructed in the atrium/restaurant/bar section of this build. Can anyone confirm?

is it just me or are there more than 15 floors in the hotel section? Is that count supposed to include the top floor, which appears to have a much higher ceiling that the others?

I think I missed a memo

The higher ceiling top floor is the restaurant.

Aaaannnnd, now it's back up. And the crane seems to be loading stuff on or off the roof--after 6 PM, no less--so I guess THAT'S good.

Nice update: It appears that the top floor is higher than the nearby Comcast Center.

Anyhow, my interests have shifted over the past year.
I am more interested in Philadelphia than New York and the Comcast Innovation & Technology Center is leading the way!

It's not higher. But the top of the cooling tower will be. And of course the spire.

I think he/she meant the top of the highest floor of CTC is higher than the top of the highest floor of Comcast Center, which appears to be true.
