they wouldnt erect a lone column like that without tying it into something. it would go against standard practice.

The perspective is bit deceiving (to me at least), but after looking more closely, I see that it must be a vertical column rather than a diagonal support. The base is way too far away from the wall. And if it were attached to the wall, it would be attached a little further to the west given the location of the base.

Yes, looks vertical, probably the first column of the part which will hold the circular ramp.

The 888 is gone, now the 16,000 can take care of the eastern portion!

There is a new smaller crane sitting in the western part, also a taller one east where the crawler crane (888) used to sit..

Seems like the 16 000 stays in the middle, finishing the big steel in the eastern part of the site from there..

At the current pace, his job could be done by the end of the year..

One of the workers took a fall onto his head this morning, but it sounds like he'll be fine.

I admit that I'm avoiding the WTC complex until they finish it.
Too many years of a hole in the ground makes me sad.

I won't be the first one to say how proud I am to see the progress so far!

So that's the parking deck, right? Where will the entrance be? And how long until it they finish with that steel and seal it underground?

Good question where the entrance will be, the renders on the first page don't give a clear answer to this (at least to me). Probably on the eastern part where steel is still erected, I don't see a gap for an entrance in the western part.

Interesting view:

Nice pic, Otie! Thanks for posting.

Interesting to see that the ground level floor is inclined, any info on the reason for this?

Coming back to the question where the entrance will be, IrishInNYC, who is working at the site, posted on WiredNewYork that the entrance will be on Liberty Street, approximately at the position where the 16,000 is sitting right now. The cars are then turning left and go down the helix ramp which is constructed right now..
