I wonder if the western-most central arch will have a column extending all the way to the floor, like is shown here?...

For some reason I was thinking it would be the only arch to have a vertical part (unlike the north and south spines). Obviously it will look much better with them. The one they've installed is truly massive, yet it should only be the third largest of them.

The two biggest ones were delivered in two pieces each. Yesterday they dismantled the temporary platform, so was this big one (third one from the left) the only one which the tower crane couldn't handle alone?

Nice find Otie.

That is a serious power supply for welding and the folks on top of the arches gives a nice scale reference.

Nice effort. Doesn't really look like the finished product though.

Well that's some nice destructive criticism there Zen. (joke you're great and informative!)

It would be great wtcrebuild if you uploaded your completed model and uploaded it on 3d warehouse.

The new Indianapolis International Airport is somewhat similar in respect to it also being a large transportation building, is very big and open with high white ceilings, and has minimal columns.

From the quarterly report:

1st Quarter 2011

Complete Metal Deck to D35 for PATH Hall Roof
Subsequent to the PATH Hall steel installation currently ongoing, the installation of the metal deck will be the precursor to placing concrete in that area. The concrete will serve a dual purpose, as it will be the roof of the PATH Hall and the floor of the Memorial Plaza.

Complete Installation of Super Columns
The Massive Super Columns provide the main support for the steel girders that span the MTA’s #1 Subway Line in the underpass area. Once these supercolumns are in place along the western side of the MTA ‘s #1 Subway Line, steel and decking can be completed from the PATH roof to the MTA’s #1 Subway Line box over all PATH Platforms and Mezzanine area.

Pour Roof Slab for Route 9A Underpass
Located in the western portion of the site, the Route 9A underpass will provide continuous pedestrian access from the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center to the WTC Site by passing under Route 9A (aka the Westside Highway or West Street). Once the roof installation is complete, the finish work can commence in the pedestrian walkway.

Substantially Complete D15 Wall south of the PATH Hall
Spanning almost the entire length of the WTC Site, this critical wall running North-South provides structural support for the PATH Hall mezzanine and infrastructure for the construction of Greenwich Street.

Begin Platform A Construction
PATH’s Platform A will be the first permanent platform for the new WTC Transportation Hub. As work continues, the temporary PATH station will be phased out as new, permanent platforms are built.

2nd Quarter 2011

Platform A Construction Complete
The PATH stations’ Platform A will be the first permanent platform for the new WTC Transportation Hub. Work for this original October 2008 assessment milestone has been resequenced in order to also incorporate work on Platform B as well. The original plan had construction of Platform B beginning after Platform A was complete. The WTC Transportation Hub team is currently in the process of developing a revised plan that calls for work on both platforms to occur simultaneously, but original completion dates to be
pushed back. In the meantime, the PATH system at the WTC site remains fully operational and will remain so throughout construction.

Substantially Complete Core and Shell Construction of Zones 1&2 of the Route 9A Underpass
This represents the first two of five zones that are being constructed under Route 9A and will connect the Hub’s East-West Connector with the World Financial Center. The core and shell of the remaining three zones, being managed by Brookfield Properties, will be completed by early 4th Quarter 2011. The Route 9A underpass will be the pedestrian thoroughfare that connects commuters from the World Financial Center to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub’s East-West Connector, which will ultimately provide pedestrian access all the way east to the Fulton Street Transit Center. The Port Authority’s completion of the core and shell work within the World Trade Center site will correlate with Brookfield Property’s completion of the work in their portion of the site.

Substantially Complete Structure for VSC / Hub Interface Area
The VSC / Hub Interface area is a key location that connects the Vehicular Security Center with the Hub’s Greenwich Street Corridor below grade. In addition, the structure will provide the support for the Memorial Plaza and Greenwich and Liberty Street work at grade.
