Steel Tops Out at 4 WTC
Posted by Tasha Weiss on June 25, 2012 at 4:30 PM.

The rebuilding of the World Trade Center has reached another significant milestone: The final steel beam was lifted atop 4 World Trade Center today, ceremonially signifying the completion of its structural steel framework.


During the topping out ceremony, ironworkers and public officials signed the beam before it was lifted 977 ft by a crane and installed on top of the building. The 72-story tower is scheduled to open late next year and is expected to be the first tower completed on the 16-acre site since the 9/11 attacks.


Last December, DCM Erectors provided AISC Regional Engineer Jacinda Collins with a tour of 4 WTC. You can read her observations in our previous news post, here.
