Planes in the Background of the Earthcam view

Another plane went behind the top of WTC 1 in that view from the Earthcam just a few minutes ago - maybe they are takeoffs from Newark airport and there is a northerly wind in NYC today.

Technical Facts

I read an article about 1WTC, some information were new to me, probably they are also useful to you:

- only LEED Gold certification

- first cost estimation: $1 billion
now at about $3.8 billion

- gsf. 280.000 m
e.g. 13.000 $/m (Burj Khalifa: 4000 $/m; Taipei 101: 5000 $/m)

- 73 elevators

- energy use reduction -20 % (compared to what? 90.1-2003?)
- 70 % renewable energy (offsite wind and water)

- 12 fuel cells
4.8 MW electrical power
5.4 MW thermal power
thermal power used for potabel hot water and running absorption chillers

- total cooling power 43 MW => 150 W/m (e.g. German standard is around 60-80 W/m - IF the building is air-conditioned)
7000 m/h water from Hudson river for condensor cooling


- Air handling units with a total of 1.400.000 m/h (5 m/(mh) = quite normal)

- average rent: $100 per m and month

As of today, it is now the tallest building in New York, surpassing the 1250 ft of the Empire State.

Congrats

Well, as long as any planes stay a safe distance away from the skyscrapers... congratulations to the workers and planners on this big milestone in the construction of the building!

Why do some reports keep saying the building won't be complete till 2014 or 2015...isn't it due to be complete next spring with tenants moving in end of next year or January 2014???

Got to update my page today!

http://newyorkyimby.blogspot.com/p/n...de-center.html



Quote:
One World Trade Center will be the pinnacle of the new WTC complex. Featuring 108 floors and designed by David Childs, 1 WTC is an office building that will soon be the headquarters of Conde Nast. If not the most iconic structure of the new WTC, 1 WTC will certainly be the tallest. While the building itself rises to roughly 1,400', a massive mast atop the building will bring the structure's total height to the towering figure of 1,787 feet. One World Trade became the tallest building in the city on April 30th, 2012, finally passing the Empire State in height. Topping-out should occur in June of 2012, with completion scheduled for 2013.
Will be sure to grab more photos this week, as well.

The confusion probably relates to the precise definition of "complete". There is still no firm set date when tenants will start moving in. It will take sometime for the interior offices to be built out. I also doubt we'll see the observation deck opened till sometime in mid-2014. Also they will be constructing temporary loading docks near the podium until the underground VSC roadway is finished. That's dependent on the transportation hub's progress.

A late '14 or 2015 completion date isn't that far fetched. The building should look mostly finished "exterior" wise by the end of this year. Save perhaps the areas where the external elevators are attached.
