Yes, more perimeter columns have been put up today. I'm sure Carlos will have some great pics later of the progress.

Hello folks! I thought I should introduce myself here in the forum to all you skyscraper fanatics! My name is Jesse and I live in Miami! But you New Yorkers laugh at our small 400 ft skyscrapers, hehe!

I'm new here as a member, but I've been following for almost a month now!

I'm very psyched about this project!

Really? I think Miami has a great skyline, with plently of buildings higher than 400 ft.

Great pic as always Carlos! Looks like they've installed most if not all of the perimeter columns. Great Progress! Man I have missed this!

It's just so hard to believe And I've been curious about two things: As soon as the roof tops out, will they immediately begin construction on the communications ring/mast? And will this mast be thicker than the average spire?
