I don't think its 2480D...

They seems to be staged at wrong place...

Perhaps it's for WTC4 crane jump

Don't forget the T4 crane needs to lift its own sections upto the climbing cafe so there would be no need to bring in a mobile crane to unload them, especially with all the heavy lift options on it. Wait until you see the rest of the favco rig, the carbody is just insane.

GROUND ZERO MUSEUM BUILDING COSTS SOAR

Quote:
The overall price tag for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum has hit $1.3 billion — and could run as high as $1.466 billion, sources close to the project warn.

That’s a dramatic increase over the $680 million that was estimated in 2006.

The cost to be absorbed by the foundation that is developing the museum is capped at $700 million, meaning the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the site, could be on the hook for much of the rest.

Included in the growing tab is up to $120 million on skylight designs, $17 million for features related to the museum’s “complex building geometry,” and $4 million for special tiles that have a terrazzo-style finish, a source said.

“At a certain point you need cost containment no matter how important the ultimate goal is,” the source argued.

While the memorial is complete, the museum is not expected to open this September as scheduled because work has nearly come to a halt as the foundation and Port Authority dispute $157 million in funding.

NOT INCLUDED IN THE PAPER VERSION:'
According to sources, the total project costs now break down as follows:
$457 million base total cost to complete and $139 million in change orders that bring the total construction costs to $596 million. There is another $164 million in memorial "soft costs" that bring the overall building costs to $760 million.

On top of that, there is a $150 million Port Authority infrastructure contribution and another $156 million that is subject to the dispute between the Port Authority and museum foundation. The PA also has another $100 million in soft costs that it is on the hook for.

The Port Authority also kicked in up to $200 million for a sky light to the trees in the northeast corner of the plaza, which was directed by New York City planning and up to $100 million that was for the accelerated construction of the roof to allow the 9-11 memorial to open in time for the 10th anniversary of the attacks last year.

All that would bring the costs to $1.466 billion.

A second source noted the growing costs and the debate over who has to pay how much doesn't even include how the museum's annual operating budget will be covered by the foundation moving forward.

"It's a separate, but related issue," the source said.

I like the stone better actually. Marble, in that rendering, looks greasy and almost like there's water on the floor. The white stone makes everything seem so much brighter

And modern. The marble made it look like a marble kitchen.

I totally agree that marble has a beautiful appearance and would add an element of richness to the appearance of the hall. However, marble is a relatively soft material so durability is an issue. Plus, it is quite porous and would absorb stains more than other stone.

Perhaps in a high traffic area such as the oculus, stone is a good choice. If the right stone is selected, it too can be quite attractive.

No, what I was saying was if you think the 1280 is a big crane, then have a look at this one meaning the 2480. Sorry if you misunderstood what I meant. Yep the 1280 is big. It'll be great to see two if them in NYC.

Jacko5,

Do you know where they are going to erect it? Will it be on the T3 site or are they just storing the pieces there until they can get the 760's out of the hub?

I dont know. A few pages back i threw out my ideas for how to erect the calatrava. I dont think they can erect it entirely from within because there would be no way to get the crane out. Maybe they could do a portion of it from within. I figured they would do the bulk of it from the outside, maybe the T3 site, and thats why they went with such a big favco...

Its awfully awkward iron.

I don't know where this crane is going to sit, since pieces seem to already be stored in front of 3WTC :
That looks like a Bay hydraulic but it also looks like a demag...not a liebherr. I didnt figured they carried demags...only lomma. (a little rambling for the locals on this board...)

As for the size, insane considering it's a tower crane! I took these tonight (6/2/12) and will try to go back during the week to see if I can catch more pieces
Who trucked those in?

Do we know anything other than the appearance of the floor changing in the renders?

The reason I ask is because "marble" is "stone" and can be either matte or gloss finish. It is just a difference in cutting/polishing.

I'm starting to think T3 my self, if so that will be very impressive to see it lift at such a large radius. The mobile is a brand new LTM 1350-6.1, I posted a few pics awhile back when it was in there yard

They were on Harris trailers but I didn't recognize the tractors, they weren't the normal's that always haul stuff there, the yellow truck I thought was my friend but turns out it wasn't, to bad because I would of gotten alot of info. I will contact another person at Harris that I know to see if I can get any info.
