Because it's a parking garage, right?

I don't mean the spiral ramp in the eastern part of the site, but the ground floor in the western part, where the whole (ground) floor is tilted. There can't be a ramp in this part.. maybe it turns out in the future..

Good progress with the steel in the mean time, maybe two months work until the 16,000 has finished its job with the major steel..?!

this has taken considerably longer than I would have expected. There really arent that many pieces in this project.

What is definitely unique are the steel plates in place of corrugated decking. I wonder if that is a product of the specification or it is just easier because of the quantity of shear studs you see. In any case, big pieces, slow erection, interesting..

Armor plate for blast protection. They did that over the underground roadway where it passes under the hub and T2/T3 also.

Where are you seeing this? I didn't see any pictures where it looked inclined.

In this pic, the ground level floor looks inclined to me, the northern part being higher than the southern. (Hope my eyes don't deceive me and I did not use the wrong term for this )

given the tonnage and the squarefootage. less than you would expect.

There are a lot of large pieces here.

Where I am going with this is, if you estimated a production rate for the crane working normally, this job would have been completed a long time ago.

# pieces / production rate = crane days.

There are some circumstances here that we don't know about that have changed the way this job was built. The project schedule for this was around 180 days for the steel. I think we are just about brushing against that now and they seem to have a good bit to go.

I saw the section you were talking about was a portion that tilted towards the viewer on the left side of the picture. I didn't even see that right side of the picture because I didn't realize the poster hadn't resized it to fit the page. Doing that makes everything very confusing!

Now that I see what you're talking about, it's very strange because it's only the top, not the lower floors. If it was a parking garage everything would be sloped. I guess we'll see what it's for after a while.

The sloping exists to match elevations at both ends, this is necessary since there will be a street level access from Cedar St.

Great picture! As you stated it's certainly an interesting perspective, where was it taken from?

I guess from this and other shots by this user, it has to be taken from One Liberty Plaza, the high black building east of 4 WTC..

I hope we see more shots from this perspective in the future, he posts quite regular updates, but usually only tower 3 and transport hub sites..

Hey this is a little off topic, but is that a "stand-by" que visible on the entry platform to the memorial? I know they have been issuing more same-day passes lately.

Looking at the bigger version of the pic, it doesn't really look like a queue, but I think due to security checks you definately have to queue up a little bit when you wanna visit the memorial..

You don't mean the building at the corner of Cedar and Washington, do you?

Yes, I believe the park is going to actually be on top of this.
