They are starting verticle construction again. They are in the process of finalizing and securing private financiers for the tower. They released $150 million a few weeks ago with $50 million immediately available to kick start construction and the rest to follow. This is going up.

Indeed, a lot of activity the last couple of days on top of 3WTC. Definitely prepping the core for vertical construction.

3 WTC is rising again thanks to a deal between Larry Silverstein and the Port Authority. It was a big news like two weeks ago. Please go to the corresponding thread about it:

12 and 13 SE are back on, and 11 is being welded. hopefully things will keep moving from here.

WRT T3 they seem to be working on cleaning up the rebar on top of the core, and I think I see some new rebar added in the corners. They had a crane there earlier on Greenwich delivering stuff to the roof too.

Four more large rafters arriving in the dead of night (sorry for bad image quality). Site's getting crowded again...

In your pic it looks like someone is on top of the WTC3 crane tower inspecting it.

They've been on top of 3WTC for a few days now. They have been prepping rebar, adding scaffolding, and bring materials up to the roof.

Nice work, Ken.

New Jersey gets to have the best views of the complex.

It was just strange the pic weidncol loaded had a guy on the crane tower. No one had been around or inspecting the crane tower until then.

I donīt really think somebody was on the crane...it looks more like the person is standing on the top floor of 3 WTC and it is just an illusion...
