Steel skeleton[edit]

Does anybody know of a good source for up-to-date information on what floor they are up to with the steel skeleton? The source at Footnote 48 seems to get updated every Friday, and yet according to that source the steel was up to Floor 92 on Jan. 13, Jan. 20, and Jan. 27. It seems hard to believe that the steel had not been built higher in all that time, so I am beginning to doubt the accuracy of that source. Tesseract12 (talk) 20:09, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

I would have to agree. According to this article, the building has been gaining one floor per week, but from Dec 31, 2011 to Mar 5, 2012, it has only gone up one floor (in 13 weeks). Jesseschulman (talk) 01:31, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

As someone who works in downtown Manhattan, I can confirm that the building is not being completed at the pace it was in the fall. I came here to see if anyone knew why. However, it is about the same height (steel structure) as it was in January. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.43.109.30 (talk) 14:32, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
