All I can say is I'm very happy it's not me forming it out, looks complex!

And while were on the topic of concrete, still more bar coming by the truck load. Really is amazing how much they are laying

I really love how complex this project is, in my opinion. Looking back through my time-lapses and seeing all the parts come together just amazes me!

Seeing this picture I took always reminds me how different it's gotten, crazy how it use to be a hole in the ground!

Lots of new crane parts coming in today.. soon we'll find out what the new crane will be used for..
And they start spreading rebar along the eastern end of the hub site.

I have friends that call rebar, "Rebarb." It's so annoying... maybe they do that just to tick me, but they sound like the idiots.

They also have a habit of mispronouncing other words by just a letter or two, such as calling Best Buy, "Best Buys."

So maybe they're not calling it "rebarb" by mistake. Maybe they are idiots.

Yep, and the swing bearing is up even though there's still a mast section on the ground. It got me confused.

Also great progress on the waterproofing on the north side, plus the east "diving boards" are almost done. Lots of rebar being place east and west. It seems that we'll soon be done with concrete. All of that means that we'll finally see those 1280 that we've been talking about for so long.

I think the mast is for the 1900 inside T3, it just seems to small for the 2300 but then again I don't think the 1900 has a climbing cage?

I'm most excited to see how the 1280 is put together and how the parts compare to the trucks they will get hauled in now.

Does anyone know if the diving boards will be erected on the west side as well, if they do then there is still more work then I think

That mast section is the same size as the others for the 2300. Here's a picture of it now, and here's a picture of it a few days ago, at the exact same spot, under a mast section that went up. The 1900 has a climbing cage, it can been seen in this picture. But since the core erection is on hold until further notice, I really don't think they need it for the 1900.

I know there are diving boards on the west side too, but I have no idea what the ETA is on those.

it looks like a 1900 mast and turntable, but its very hard to tell.

If it is a 1900 i will be surprised. A lot of talk of them being shut out of NYC entirely for 'safety reasons' (which is a questionable theory altogether)

Oh wow that is really odd that they didn't add it to the mast, maybe some one screwed up and sent a extra piece (?) It's defiantly a 2300 as it has the centered cab

With the west diving boards not even in it seems it will be awhile still until Koch comes in with the 1280's, there finally laying the east side with rebar but there aren't even any forms on the west side. And what's with them laying that black and blue material on the North side? Anyone know what it does?

325ccr hello .. Google contexx Abode YouTube and you can see a 380 go up. The only differance between it and a 1280 is the machine deck would most likely go up in two sections. Favco cranes were invented in Australia. In Canberra, the capital, they have a Favco street. They were bought out by Malaysians. But two blokes called Favelle and cole got it underway. If you're excited about the 1280 then have a look at look ozscrapers section and the Frasers thread in NSW section. It has a 2480. In fact plenty of good shots of plenty of Favs in various threads. The company that owns the 2480, Marrs, use a Linkbelt 225 to erect most of their cranes. And for those that call it the turntable. It's the slew ring.

They already did that on a small section of the NE corner and they spread dirt on top.

They're pouring a new layer of concrete on top of the waterproofing in the northern part with the lower elevation. But it looks like there is still a height difference to the elliptic part.. we'll see how it will be filled

it's hard to tell but it looks like there's no rebar in there. I wonder if it's temporary like what they did on the East side of Tower One.
