20 floors, 1 floor per week, 20 divided by 4.5 is around 4 or 5 months to finish cladding.

Also, what do you think this is, on the roof of 4wtc?

Then they still have to take down the external elevators on the east and west of the building and install all of those panels as well.

As for the slow glass progress of late... For whatever reason, they are only installing curtain wall panels for an hour-and-a-half to two hours every day in the morning. I guess the guys are needed elsewhere on the site. Once they are back on their regular schedule, the pace will increase again.

This one is from some time ago, but still pretty recent. Filmed from the Palisades in NJ:



This one is from Sept. 9, 2012, from Sandy Hook, NJ, about 20 miles south. The WTC appears in the end, as the lead-in is the city/suburban skyline of Long Island. Filmed at about 20x zoom:

It's called "Building Union" ... and if you don't they protest and put a big rat in front of your site. It's very effective!

And their symbolic means; representing the two pilars of the Temple of Jerusalem.

But, instead of them, we are going to see something much better being realised, the two stars beautifully in harmony and embracing each other, the tallest obelisque and the holy grale on top reaching out with its light to the sky/ to the God.

I love the new design and may it bring peace, prosperity and harmony to both the NEW and Old Worlds.

hmmmm ... I thought it will eye taller

Perhaps soon when the spire and the rest is being installed it will look taller, but nonetheless, it is an amazing structure built on holy sacred land.
