Great snapshot! I wonder if they will also use the yellow crane to erect the remaining steel in the area where the 16,000 was sitting or if a smaller one is sufficient for this task?

With all the weight on the LTM 1250 I bet they will use it to erect the remaining steel

From the PANYNJ WTC Progress Report, October 2012:

Vehicular Security Center

October 2012

The WTC Vehicular Security Center and Tour Bus Parking Facility (VSC) is a below-grade structure that will be used to screen buses, trucks, and cars entering the WTC site when it is operational. The above- grade portion of the VSC, located on the southern side of Liberty Street between Greenwich and West streets, will act as an entrance to the screening facility that will connect to an underground roadway system passing under the entire WTC complex. This roadway system will serve WTC loading docks, bus parking, as well as a connection to commercial parking. On top of the above-grade VSC structure in the southwest corner of the WTC site, will be the publicly accessible Liberty Park. Construction is progressing quickly on the VSC, with structural steel erection at approximately 90 percent complete and concrete installation at approximately 40 percent complete. Steel erection is expected to be 100 percent complete by the end of October.

^ "Steel erection is expected to be 100 percent complete by the end of October."

I wonder if that includes the link of the south pedestrian bridge to the VSC?

(Probably not.)

With "topped out" you mean all steel has been placed? Cause the part with the higher elevation on the western part has been finished some time ago (except for the link to the pedestrian bridge..). So topping out means setting the last steel piece, not necessarily on "top" of the building?

edit: just noticed on the KPI TV cam that the yellow crane left the site yesterday..

What about that tower near the southwest corner that is shown in some of the Liberty Park renders? That large notch where it is supposed to go is still empty.

What's going to happen to the vehicle center when a flood would occur in this part of manhatten? Probably it will flood the whole WTC site below ground or not? Is this is even possible?

Yes, it will be used. An older post from IrishInNYC on WiredNewYork:

The "helix" will contain rooms at each level, containing security for the entire building.

Worth noting: the VSC is directly connected to the tunnel that goes through the basements of Towers 2 and 4, the hub, the area just outside of 1WTC and the connector by extension. If the water keeps filling up the small space that is filling in the picture, it'll go over the steel wall on the right side of the screen and all hell will break loose.

If they get the water pumped out in a reasonable time span, does the sea water do any damage to the rebar/concrete? Hopefully not

Looks like one of kpitv cams finally refreshed. Looks like barely any damage on top but real question is how bad is it on the bottom?

and work is at stand still
