    Glad someone noticed the progress! On the left, taken 6-29-11. On the right, 04-11-12. Less than 10 months, that is some dramatic change.
    Yes, I notices many changes recently, too.

    Irish,

    Is that a AC40 city crane the 16000 lifted into the pit? I assume to tandem lift the 888 car body?

    Some of the steel for first segment of the helix went up last week.

    An AC-55, taking the 888's place for the next few weeks. An LTM 1100 will also be set up on the south, above the T5 wall. 2 cranes needed to replace the 888 work horse.

    What will be at the center of the helix? Open from bottom to top?

    The circular slab is the center of the helix; steel will be installed around it like pie pieces, then steel will fill the middle. It's not open on top, the church essentially sits on top of the helix, 30 feet above ground, centered a little closer to the north.

    The "helix" will contain rooms at each level, containing security for the entire building.

    Does anyone know of any active video camera feeds that show the VSC? Since KPI TV went haywire and EarthCam doesn't show even the west end of the VSC anymore, we are (or at least I am) blind as to what is going on there.
