I believe the base stays naked for some time. The main tower isn't due to be topped out with cladding until late January 2013. Given the shear amount of activity and loading still required all around the base, I think they'll hold off putting up material that will no doubt be damaged. (I could be wrong, it's very "PA" to put something up "just because" and not care amount the damage or inconvenience).

Current schedule:

1: The 2 cranes jump into the "doghouse" by the end of this week.
2: East and West cooling towers go up.
3: Build north crane support platform by Labor Day.
4: Relocate north crane by mid September.
5: North cooling tower by Sept 20.
6: 2nd tier of temp platform for south crane.
7: South crane relocates to support platform by end of October.

While IrishGuy is a great source of info. I doubt him on this because, the clips are being hung and are now visible on the North face.

First time posting, quick background I'm an architecture student in his final year, studying and working in the city. I pass by the trade center site at least once a week. In reference to the "metallic tape" at the base of the tower, it is actually some sort of gray paint. It clearly looks like it is the proper spacing for the brackets for the facade panels, although I can only speculate to the actual purpose of why they are painting it. Possibly because they have cleaned the area of the concrete where the brackets will mount too and the paint serves as a guide/helps keep the surface clean.

Support steel for the podium's curtain wall. DCM has sent crews to work on this area. Permasteelisa (the glass contractor) is installing anchors for the glass fins at the north face.

From Otie.

Sorry Otie if you didn't want me to post this.

I think it's a reflection of the reflection () of the sun on the Goldman Sachs tower.

When I first saw this new material go up on the base I sent him a message over at SSP.
