Do we have an estimate on topping out date?
I think just before Thanksgiving

wow, those are some of the best photos yet, thanks for posting them. The lantern is looking great, between its completion & the removal of the elevator system hanging off the west end it'll slim this guy down a bit, this is really getting exciting

Cool. Looks like they're almost half way done the spire in height. I'd say the building is at 1,051 feet right now.

^ If it's 1,050, it's taller than the Chrysler Building, and the third tallest in the country outside NYC and Chicago. It's only behind Salesforce in SF and Wilshire Grand in LA.

About 10 feet taller, so 1,061 feet

TK, can you add the remaining spire to one of the above images? So we can visualize the height to be added?

What do you think it means? And why is that funny?

Excluding buildings in New York and Chicago, CTC is now the third tallest. The only things taller are Salesforce Tower in San Francisco and the Wilshire Grand Tower in Los Angeles.

I was at home depot on Oregon earlier today, and from the south it looks really strange since the cooling tower part and lantern are the same width. I think it's going to look like it's missing the other side when all is said and done. Hopefully the color differences are enough to make it not look so two dimensional (little rectangle on top of big rectangle.)

NEW (or at least To me it is)

A different version of a video we’ve all seen a hundred times over. The details here are more pronounced however!

https://youtu.be/5Sx16QVr5gA
Video Link


Sorry for the mess-ups above, I was trying to learn how to imbed YouTube videos and the first two attempts came out all wonky like.
