Wow. They really have installed a lot of glass since I last was in that area. Those cloudy day pics especially are very good.

You can see the next course of glass on the southeast corner on the webcam which looks like the last level they can put on due to the lack of fireproofing on the floors above - wonder what's going on there, it halted a while ago.

Looks like they might be gearing up to put in another level of glass on the East side today.

I didn't read the link when I clicked this thread, so as I was scrolling down the page in a quick manner, I thought I was skimming through 3WTC pictures lmao!

they were working on the top level the other day. I wonder what is going on up there? No vertical progress so perhaps they are putting down the roof on the top level.

I think there have been at least parts of floor sections that have had the glass panels installed and then they've sprayed on the fireproofing afterwards. I'm wondering if that will be the case with some of the upcoming floors. As you could see from the webcam on Thursday that the next two floors of windows seem to be lined up an ready to go regardless of the fireproof coating not being there.

There seems to be enough room perhaps to get the sprayed material in that space. They'll just have to cover the windows like they've done on some of the other floors.

I've read that the hotel potion of this building is 15 floors. Looking at the pictures above (particularly acumenhokie's from yesterday) you can see there are now 11 of the vertical cages (1 per floor) that frame out the facade on the east face of the building, clearly they're going to need more than 4 more to get to the roof level. I thought all along that the top floor where the restaurant will be will have a higher ceiling which accounts for some of that, but it looks like maybe the floor under that will also be more than the standard height of all the lower floors, is this correct? And what is on that floor below the restaurant?
