What is the square footage on the final five floors? The core seems a bit close to the perimeter.

World Trade Center Sues to Get Delivery of Antenna Steel

By Christie Smythe and David McLaughlin - 2012-10-12T22:21:01Z

ADF Steel Corp., a structural steel fabricator, was sued for allegedly failing to deliver materials needed to complete the antenna at 1 World Trade Center in Manhattan.

ADF is holding “hostage” steel that would form the spire on the structure because of an unrelated contract dispute, the building’s owner, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said in a lawsuit filed today in New York State Supreme Court.

“ADF refuses to ship this antenna steel unless and until it receives approximately $6 million allegedly owed under another project, as ransom,” the Port Authority said in the complaint.

At more than 400 feet, the antenna would allow the building, formerly called the Freedom Tower, to reach a symbolic height of 1,776 feet, according to a website for the construction project. It will be the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building and serve as a “symbol of recovery” after the so-called Twin Towers at the site were destroyed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to the complaint.

ADF had explicitly promised it wouldn’t withhold steel for the spire, which costs $10 million, regardless of the previous contract dispute, according to the complaint. About 100 ironworkers could be laid off if “they have no steel to erect,” the Port Authority warned.

Eric Ducharme, marketing director for Terrebonne, Quebec- based ADF Group Inc., (DRX) didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment on the lawsuit.

The Port Authority asked the court for an order requiring ADF to deliver the steel.

‘Iconic Character’

“Due to the iconic character of 1 WTC Tower and the enormous complexities surrounding its erection, leasing and opening, money damages cannot adequately compensate for the harm ADF is causing with every passing day that it refuses to deliver the antenna steel,” the lawyers said in the complaint.

The case is WTC Tower 1 LLC v. ADF Steel Corp., 653580- 2012, Supreme Court of New York, County of New York (Manhattan).
I'm not even surprised anymore

No, half the panel is completely open, no glass, vent, or screen, just open. Imagine a regular panel with only 1/2 wide panes of glass. That is it, it's nothing fancy like 4WTC.

That seems odd. How can a building just be left open to the elements? What if it rains?

Canadian company holding steel needed for WTC antenna 'hostage' for millions

By DAREH GREGORIAN
Last Updated: 5:58 AM, October 13, 2012

"A Canadian company is holding the steel needed to build the new World Trade Center’s antenna “hostage” for millions of dollars — jeopardizing the completion date for the tower and at least 100 iron-worker jobs, court papers charge..."

"...“The schedule for completion” has “already been comprised,” the suit says — and it could get much worse soon.

If “ADF does not ship certain pieces of the antenna steel” by December, “the St. Lawrence River will freeze and bar transport of the delivery of the steel until the spring,” the filing says..."
