Unfortunately, not yet. That is the temporary construction elevator which will be removed.

Pretty sure its not structural.. but there is something sticking up in the photo that seems to indicate how high the cooling towers and mast will be.
Seems gone again today in the webcam, but the horizontal pieces are about a "floor" height apart.
Also noting that the windows on the south side have started to rise above the fireproofing, as someone suggested they might.
I wonder if the wind causes extra problems at that height?

^^That's the antenna on top of the PSFS Building--it just looks like it's on top of CTC in that photo because of the angle. If you follow it down from the top, you'll see that it is connected to the supporting tower and base on the roof of PSFS. It's easier to see if you click on the photo and go to the flickr page, and then click on it again to blow it up.

Thanks! I wondered why it wasn't showing up in the webcam.
However I think it make a nice measuring stick for visualizing the height of the spire :-)
It should actually be a little higher than this.

The person who handed me the slides mentioned that there are some hurdles to meeting these dates but that's the desired schedule in any case.

I can imagine workers pondering. "These nerds won't stop asking when the spires being added!" "Here give them this it will make them stay away for good."

Ha! I see a track for the window washing crane. That's a first since the building is so wide that a single boom wouldn't be able to extend to all four sides. Cool stuff!

That's the one about playing mind games with the folks on the Skyscraper Page forum.

So should things stay on schedule...

We'll reach 996 feet by July 10th, and will officially have Philadelphia's and Pennsylvania's first Supertall Tower and well as the new tallest building for both respectively, topping the current tallest Comcast Center at 975 feet tall.

We'll reach 1,121 feet by August 10th, and reach the official topping out of the building.

From the webcam it looks like they're working on installing windows on two floors at the same time. It looks like they'll spray the fireproofing on after the windows, similar to what was done around floors 42 and 43 after the crane was removed in that area.

That's awesome! No more speculating about how long it's going to take to get things done.
