If only they were sticking to something resembling the original design and not the boring flap in a box.

I think the new design is more appropriate for the location. The stacked boxes design was too attention-drawing.

I just find the new design boring and by the looks of things another cost cutting exercise. The older design complimented Liberty Park across the way very well. It desperately needs a bit of color!

Looks like they building a base for either crawler or large mobile crane on right side.

If there were any doubt, steel columns are on the rise.

So the shown steel is not a remaining structure of the former PATH but actual underground structure construction for the PAC?

I am very excited about the translucent marble cladding.



The sight of that, especially at night, will hopefully silence criticisms that it is just a bland squat box.

The London skyline is an example of how too many buildings vying for attention creates a discordant jumble. With structures such as the Oculus and memorial nearby, it is great that this building blends in the New York grid, comparatively, while standing out with high quality cladding. And once you look more closely it has plenty of subtle high quality design details.

Obviously I would have drooled over another supertall, too. This is SSC. But when that is not in the cards, this is a beautiful design for this location.

The tall columns are new, but it also looks like they are retaining some of the existing steel as part of the new structure.

Glad to see the eastern side of the 1WTC base finally being patched up. Though what is the purpose of this structure right next to it? Will it come down at some point in the near future?

Temporary loading dock for 1 WTC because the Vehicle Security Center's connection to it isn't complete (the Temporary PATH Station Entrance where the Performing Arts Center is going to go was blocking the completion of 1 WTC's VSC connection).

I guess that no direct (sheltered) connection to the mall from the PAC will be provided because the VSC is hogging most of the footprint? Isn't there at least space for an elevator or something?? I suppose that they're okay with half of the buildings on the complex not being connected to the mall (1, 2, 3, and 4 will; 5, 6, 7, and the museum won't). I really think they should try to find a way, somehow; shelter and transportation are super important for visitors.

Actually, construction on the northern VSC had already started before the latest temporary PATH entrance was even built. They built the foundation for the northern VSC, including that visible steel, and then built the final temporary PATH entrance right on top of it, in anticipation of demolishing it and once again revealing the VSC's foundation so that work on the permanent structure could continue.

It looks like earthcam has discontinued coverage of the WTC.

Use the app. The website doesn't seem to be updating correctly. Lots of new steel has been added lately(worth noting that they also seem to be finishing the VSC connection to 1 WTC).

Thus I recommend bookmarking This Post and clicking on the links within. (If you click Quote on this post, you'll see the URLs for Beber's links start with kerrigan.synology.me.) The Earthcam archive image links have the date/time within the URL showing when the picture was taken, such as "www.earthcam.net/archives/[...]/2016/09/11/0915.jpg". The time is local New York time (Eastern Time).

After you click on the Memorial or Jersey City links you may still need to reload the page, else your browser may show an old, cached image.
