Did they give up on straightening the misalignments? The work platform seems to have been removed yet the alignment is still off.

Personally I always had my doubts about that whole heating/straightening process, although I'd like to be proven wrong...

So no information lately about the changed configuration of the PATH station (exits at T2&T4, closing of the Vesey St entrance). Would have been nice to have that this winter with the cold. Does anyone know if it includes connection to the E train or Dey St Passage, or does that come with the full opening of the oculus area?

Thanks - I walk by every day, sometimes down to the passage to WFC, and there are no notices about pending changes, so I bet nothing happens til late March at the earliest.

.

I don't think they where using the heatingproces, this does'nt need spanners, it just happens by changing tensions in the material itself

It would be great shame for the multi billion project if they would not fix that
How it was possible not to control this issue during assembling? 8 most eastern gaps all not equal one to another. It's very obvious at this picture.

it seems less noticeable now... though that could be the white snow playing tricks on the eye. The 5 on the end are still wonky.

First glazing panels should get installed anytime soon. Anchors are already installed in nearly all pockets of the portal frames.

They're definitely doing something



About the skylight, could this be the first sign of its installation?
