I agree with you. Quality is more important than speed

Rough Base by PMadFlyer, on Flickr
You know they did away with the chamfered corners on the base, right? It's a box now.

Can't you see the base cladding is clearly boxed off?

Are they gonna construct a building instead of that Center?
I will be honest with you all here, 5 WTC in 2023 was just a simple educated guess. nothing more.

And no, It will still be the same building, just with a different name.

I doubt 1WTC will be done in late 2013 due to months of delays. December 2014-early 2015 seems more reasonable.

The completition of 1WTC will definitely not be in 2015. It will be not later than in summer 2014, but I'd say winter 2013/2014

There are still four to go (I'm kind of annoyed that it's taking so long for four bloody beams). I'm guessing they're holding out for 9/11/12.

Also, I think it only makes sense to label the PAC as 6WTC, just as the Vista/Marriott hotel was labeled 3WTC.

Yeah it's annoying that they still have 4 spandrel beams remaining but it really doesn't matter because the top of the tower steel has already been reached.

T1 is the PA's flagship, T4 is silverstein's least expensive tower to build, followed by T3, and lastly T2. Also Silverstein had enough insurance money to completely build T4.

^Don't worry,I also thought the corners looked chamfered for a moment.It's just the illusion of the red diagonal steel column which creates such result.

Talked to my contact at Harris Candem (steel contractor) and got this: The Tower 1 favco will get 200 feet of mast to trip the mast of the antenna. To get the crane's off the building they modified a timberland derrick with huge drums. J. Supor is bringing in the antenna and it will be barged down from ADF in Canada and unloaded in NJ by Don Jon Marines Chesapeke 1000 and then trucked into the city, the loads are 23 feet wide....

I needed something to do while KC was was getting a half foot of rain from Isaac [we were only expecting to get .75 inches, but I won't complain, even the trees were dying]. Here are some creative renderings, its still a work in progress.
