This thing is going to fly up pretty quickly now that this more complex structure is being put in place.

I wonder how soon we’ll see the retail space handed over to Apple to start building their store. While there has been talk about retail opening years in advance of the tower being completed, I can’t see Apple opening at the base of an active construction zone.

One thing I noticed once they got super column bases shored into the ground, was how quickly they went from there to grade before the city put the breaks on them. (And this was long before that discussion when readers started comparing the pace to this to the that of the building of the Great Pyramids of Egypt.) So it was never really the construction of the thing that was holding them up, rather the fine print and unfortunate timing of it when it kicked in.

...but yeah, I can see this moving fast.

How does one post a short video here. I have a two minute video of one of the cross beams being lowered into place but I don’t know to upload it here.
Try this:
