Wow, this is my first time to see this project. I must say the cladding itself got me so excited for this project. What a gem! Wished it could have been a bit more taller 'cause this needs to be seen

the erector was thrown off this job today.

I would expect a halt to work starting soon and lasting at least a few weeks.

Though from the GE building you have a magnifficent view onto this, but for panorama's it has to be taller.

i know for certain that they have been disqualified as an eligible erector from a couple new projects because of it.

with regard to gem. they were kicked off and Cornell has been contracted to complete the tower.

with regard to DCM as a whole, there is word that they have laid off nearly their entire fabrication shop because the mills will not fill any more orders.:

i also understand that they are desperately behind on their union benefits payements.

im not sure how this will affect downtown due to the political implications of a major work slowdown/shutdown at wtc, but its a big problem....
