    It seems too tall for a tower crane and too wide for whole sections using gin poles. I'm wondering if they might build it from the top down, jacking the whole thing up as they finish a section.

    Interesting vid!! Hope that they find something suitable and pretty for the base.

    That looks like scalfolding being set up around the base, BTW. It IS. I can see stairs there as well.

    Thanks for the video link. Chris Ward is enormously impressive. I'm glad Cuomo's not firing him!

    That would be my guess as well. The whole antenna is made up of ~8 foot high modules. Given the narrow top, I'd guess they'd first lift the top 30 or so feet and start adding sections beneath.

    Is when it is brought to life. Can't wait to see Tower 4's mockup do the same thing.

    Could we be seeing vents go in the west facade where there is that strange gap in the placement of the curtainwall?

    I think they're staying clear of that blue stairway until some of the lower segments are disassembled.
