It should have been, but the delay spree of the WTC just won't end

The antenna will just start to be visible by that time,but I believe it won't even be half way complete by then.

Yes it will, in fact it will be more than halfway done...If they stick with the schedule, November to March, then 4 segments should go up a month

Trust me,we aren't going to see the antenna for quite a while.I say January is when we'll see the antenna just start to be visible.

The ring is a major undertaking first. You won't see tower sections of the antenna until well into 2013.

Where is your proof? I'm just going by what Alan says over at SSP and the PA schedule. If it's going to take 4 months, theres 16 segments so I don't see why more than 5 can't be lifted into place by January...

Because he's an ironworker at the site. He's information is always accurate.
I know your excited for the antenna, and I am to, I guess, but I think we should trust Irish on this one.

Both Alan and Irish are the most reliable persons over the forums, the ring structure will indeed go first. Sections of the mast are already finished and ready to be shipped, first ones will arrive in New York City just after Thanksgiving but their erection will not occur until 2013.

LIsten to Otie,, he's pretty damn reliable too, especially when he says who to listen to,, so now to my "off topic point" ,, why does everyone hate the idea of 5WTC, I hear ppl say, and call it the "urinal",, I think it has a unique design,, too bad they scrapped it,,(but, I don't know if it's totally off the table,,). I know this seems far-fetched,, well maybe very far-fetched,, but this would be cool as hell,, but just imagine in NYC, in NYC.. (The renders show 5WTC with trees growing off it's half way point???) alrite ready everybody?? How about California Redwoods growing off that point?? I think that would be so amazing, futuristic,, and would probaly never happen,, but can you imagine East meets West?? maybe I'm just crazy,, but think that would be AWESOME...

hehe...erection...get it? ( Sorry )
No but seriously well into 2013 until we see a spire? That's a bit disappointing. Oh well, hope to visit there in a few years.
