Sounds good!

I can see them having musical performances and other type of entertainment services there.

What's the deal with those huge white boxes they keep lowering into the oculus?

It looks like some scaffolding is rising on the East side:

Those white boxes are air handler units and are going down to B4 level on Central Fan Plant. (just below the stairs that connect PATH hall with Transit hall).

CFP is located below this photo.

It looks like the planters next to the Hub have taken on a new look today:

Yes, it's waterproofing for the tree pits. Please remember the final design package eliminated the proposed planters and instead replaced them with normal granite seats, trees were repositioned from the area where granite seats are now to the stepped terraces (adjacent to Tower 3).

I was disappointed when I noticed there were no planters on the final landscape general drawings, the proposed plan included groundcovers and special plants for every season throughout the year.

Thanks Otie. That's an awful lot of air handlers, they must have delivered at least 20 of them already.

How are they getting them down from B2(?) to B4? And why didn't they drop them in there before they poured the floors above?

OTOH if they would have been down there last year they would have gotten ruined by Sandy and it would have been an even bigger mess.

Why would they do that? There's such a lack of color besides green around the entire site. It would be nice to see flowers or something around.

Personally, I wish they would plant evergreens. The place is so dreary in the Wintertime... all grey, no life.

At least two more large pieces are arriving tonight:

They must be getting ready to shift into high gear.

For winter, they would use cardinal dogwood and green beauty boxwood. Meeeh, hopefully Cortland Way will have planters.
