From What I Heard, Tower 3 is being constructed. Tower 2 isn't.
But either way, towers 2 and 3 need to fill the large amount of space.

I found our answer on why we have not topped out on July 4, Cause they have NOT worked on the outside of the tower since Early June!!!! I just did those comparision pictures that I do and noticed, There is no difference from Today, till last week:

So Then i went to two weeks ago and STILL NO difference. So a bit questioning i went a 3RD WEEK Back! Still NO difference! So I went back ONE MOnth from Today!!! And guess what? No difference! No new glass, NO new height/steel, no new anything from the outside!

That is rather odd...You'd think they'd want to finish everything so they could take the cranes down. Aren't they expensive to rent?

I agree. I wonder if someone in here who has connections with the workers can provide us with an explanation. I mean, a month? Really?

I think it's heat related. Honestly, it's been a extremelly hot summer for the Northeast, There have been two heat waves between June and July
Work should resume tommorow, tems are in the upper 80s with lower humidty
