That looks to be the temporary loading dock they're constructing on the east side of the tower.

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question but what exactly will this loading dock be used for and how long will it be up?

It'll be used mainly for delivery trucks. I think it will be up for several years until the temporary PATH entrance is gone (which won't be demolished until after the new Calatrava Hub is opened) and the Vechicle Security Center can be connected to 1WTC.

Depuis la France (Lyon), je dis : Bravo aux constructeurs de cette magnifique tour !!!
( From France, I say : "Congratulations to the builders of this wonderful tower !!!")

Thanks for clarifying that! But isn't the observation deck entrance supposed to be on the east side where the loading dock will be? Or will there still be access to the entrance?

I was hoping to give you guys a Vray rendering with the LEDs all on and illuminating the spire. Instead, I've been fighting with just the beacon and I can't get the lights to function. I think I can fix it, but no promises as to when.

I think the observation deck entrance is on the west side (and below ground?). I could be wrong though. Maybe someone else knows.

I thought I saw many people say so?? And also because the plaza is on the east side I thought it would have been the best idea to put the entrance there. Is there anybody who could clarify this?
