...not that I have any problem with all the great PR this tower is getting, but let's remember that it isn't actually built yet. Bearing that in mind, let's get back to construction updates, at least for a while.

Having said that, the 21st row of cladding is going up today on the "east" side of the tower!

I believe that is the crane on the side on Tower 1 (Hanging off the Northwest corner.)

In the future, tower four will appear near the exact middle of that view.

thanks,

from germany
All of these floors are for the building's Sky Lobby. Most of this space will be a single, enormous room. Effectively, the workers are reaching the virtual midway of the vertical construction phase.

They're actually gonna announce it INSIDE 1WTC? That's really cool
Perhaps the first event ever to be hosted inside this building?

Of course not! Lower Manhattan will never look like that. There is nothing futuristic today about putting Ads on buildings, it is quite Old Hat. Today it has been done before in China and Japan and could be done, but there is no need and it is in the wrong location. The eye candy may look pretty and colorful to us, but it is hardly futuristic anymore - maybe in the 1990's - and is not necessary. Many people think it is tacky consumerism and there is hardly a need for so many Ads down there. It is a matter of choice, and Lower manhattan is becoming more residential. More residents in the USA does not = times square signs on every building. Think about that. People don't want major light pollution near their homes.

Lower Manhattan isn't becoming more Residential. Maybe you could say if they wasn't building 4 huge office buildings.

See, look at that! Amazing! So much more impressive than just the one tower! That's why I wish they'd built the twin towers right back!
