Even at its early stages, this is already an exciting build to watch.

There's something romantic about the building of a steel skyscraper. Hearkens to iconography of earlier American industrial-commercial power.

Depending on the weather, the rest of crane 2 will be install. Huge base for the crane.

Only 2 more floor beams to be place on the west side. The corners are not what I was expecting, but will wait to see what the brackets are going to be used for on the columns and beams.

Its to allow for pillar-less corners, when they pour the concrete floorplates it will probably square out, that or they place some smaller non structural steel beams to square the corners.

Is it just me or do the floorplates seem really small?

Elevator core takes up a lot of space at the lower levels. Floorplates open up as the core gets smaller the higher up we get. One of the reason its more efficient to build office towers at 44 storeys rather than 80 which would require a much larger core.
