I think they just moved some cargo elevator out of the way. I'm sure those pieces will be filled in this week.

What are some of the innovative new safety features for this building? I was joking around in the WTC2 thread that they ought to have slides, in addition to stairwells. Could a safe slide be utilized in some way or is that stupid?

Best Wishes,
Matt
