Smoke purge fans are on site. First envelope glass panels are being delivered for installation. You can see the last clips being installed within the portals just beneath the arches.

Otie, how long do you figure it will take until the structure is completely enclosed? No way they are going to be able to do the finishing on the inside until the outside weather can't get it, right?

I honestly don't know, schedules I have are pre-Sandy, so they are outdated.
Regardless of the situation on Oculus steel, there is work being done inside. Transit hall columns of the lower portals are being painted with water based intumescent painting, glass store front on the Transit Hall is way underway, among other stuff going on.

Oculus steel will receive 2 coatings: an intermediate and a finishing coat.

Only 11 more to go on the north side, boys and girls! What, say two, two and a half weeks? Very exciting.

We're getting in the home stretch. Very exciting. I hope the two tower cranes will be removed quickly afterwards.

Well, if they continue erecting them in order, the longest rafter will the the last one mounted.

How did I stay at the Millenium Hilton and never notice the Underwood Building?? IF that is an apartment on top, the tenants have some spectacular neighbors to gawk at!

Although the site seems to be down at the moment.
Edit: it appears to be working again.
