Don't expect to see the mast before Thanksgiving,at the earliest.Some ironworkers down at WiredNY believe it will even be until late December,early 2013.

If you mean the "spire"...it won't start for several months. There is a huge 6' thick base slab with embeds to be done first...the south crane is to be taken apart and demobilized and the north crane will jump up into the "doghouse" at the top of the building and from there climb up for the construction of the spire.

I don't think we'll see a hint of the spire this side of 2013.


The question was once again asked in that specific thread,and he replied by saying this:

IrishInNYC:

......The antenna itself will bring in plenty of revenue also but it's some way off. As I said before, you won't see any antenna (on the building) this side of the new year. That said, a major overtime push on steel and concrete at the top of the house is expected over the next few months.


I think they should just stop putting dates on anything,as it's always delayed.

I've been beaten to it, but IrishInNYC at WNY is really the guy to listen to here. He is working at the site every day.

What do you mean by remnants? If you mean the tip of the beacon then that is impossible...it's gonna be half a year before the antenna is finished.

On america's got talent tonight, each time they went to commercial they showed a faded Statue of liberty, with a faded 1WTC. It was cool!

@ Chibears, there a thread on the Memorial, that's the appropriate place to post that question.

It's been a while I have visited this thread. It is amazing looking at the progress made so far.

It would be a brilliant idea to have some colored LED lighting for the building when completed, like the type I saw in Shard.
