Can someone explain to me why the glass doesn't seem to be progressing.
Don't know much about it all if I'm honest.

Also, we are about to begin cladding mechanical floors, which are much taller.

Netting at the southeastern corner was removed to allow the get-in of MEP and HVAC related mechanisms into the plenums, after this, louver cladding will follow in the inner plenum faces. Once louvers are in place, then curtain wall will resume. Figure a month.

It's a real pleasure to share the same enthusiasm over the forums

Some photos by Calibratedzeus, notice the temporary platforms at the plenums prepared to initiate the louver cladding.

Hello, Guys, I know I shouldn't write here with my question but I have no idea where I could do that, so I'm writing here
What's going on with the facade of that black building on the right to 4WTC (http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8495/8...408b0c7b_k.jpg)? How to call that building? Thanks for the info

Looking Ahead to a New Year of WTC Milestones


Visible milestones marked steady progress at the World Trade Center (WTC) site in 2012. Over the past year, both 1 WTC and 4 WTC topped out at 105 and 72 stories, respectively; the Vehicular Security Center (VSC) was structurally completed; and the WTC Transportation Hub took shape at grade with its iconic cast-steel ribs supporting its substructure.

Updates on each of the WTC projects were presented by Port Authority Assistant Director of WTC Construction Quentin Brathwaite at Thursday's Community Board 1 Planning Committee meeting.

At 1 WTC, where steel reached its 1,368-feet peak in August, the final phase of vertical completion kicked off last month: installation of the spire that will raise the tower's total height to 1,776 feet. Crews took advantage of unseasonably calm weather in early December, transporting the spire's lower nine pieces from a Hudson River barge to the base of 1 WTC over just four nights. They are now at work forming the base for the spire atop the tower, and lifting the enormous sections to the roof one-by-one as weather allows. Brathwaite explained that crane lifts at 1 WTC are restricted to times when wind does not exceed 30 miles per hour at the roof level, greatly limiting operations during these winter months.

Nine upper pieces will complete the spire, but their installation may not begin until late winter or spring depending on weather conditions.

At the tower's base, or "podium," protective netting has been removed as crews prepare for the installation of the glass facade in early 2013.

Meanwhile, the Port continues to build out 1 WTC, including structural work on the public observation deck at the 100th and 101st floors, as well as lower-level lobby and elevator fit-out. In total, eight elevators in the tower are nearly operational, and office space and restrooms are nearing completion on several of the floors from 20 through 44, where tenant Conde Nast will be located by approximately late 2014.

Brathwaite explained that his team is now coordinating street-level construction plans with the State Department of Transportation (SDOT), which is building the West Street Promenade, on the plaza surrounding 1 WTC and on the pedestrian tunnel to Battery Park City, known as the "east-west connector." The plaza is part of the overall WTC streets program that will restore Vesey, Fulton, Cortlandt, Liberty, and Greenwich Street through the site -- though it is likely that none of the streets will accommodate public vehicular traffic. Removal of the Vesey Street Pedestrian Bridge also will be coordinated once the east-west connector is completed in approximately late 2014.

Timing for each street's completion and opening also is being coordinated, but it is possible that Greenwich and Liberty will open around 4 WTC as early as late 2013.

Too much intervention of the NYPD?

Probably. Why even bother recreating the streets then? They might as well place the same stone bricks over the entire sight and recreate the superblock again since that's what it will basically be anyway.

So they can technically say they removed the super block to make themselves look better.

I haven't gotten the opportunity to take a look at the Final Streets program drawings but the papers of the landscape architect show the same paving pattern from the hub plaza extending to Fulton Street and extending to Tower 2. I don't mind closing Fulton Street but maaan Greenwich...
