Why is this thing all lit up like a Christmas tree each night? Are they working on it round the clock? Do they work weekends also?

Yes. Have you never seen a U/C building at night before?

It would be cool if they added some new steel today, but they probably wont

The reflective nature of the cladding might be something to talk about. If am right this will be a disturbing issue in Summer for drivers.

Good work above all!

Does anyone know, when this building (and by extension, 4WTC) are completed and read to go and 2 and 3WTC are still U/C, will 1 and 4 workings be moved over to 2 and 3 to help out, or will they get to go home?

I keep thinking about the thousands of poor migrating birds these towers will kill every year. Blue mirrored glass buildings kill way more than black glass or stone facades. Visually these towers will disappear on clear sky days.

I think you underestimate the average intelligence of a bird.

I have seen ZERO proof that such towers kill birds.
