Don't know if anyone else has noticed that the service elevator has been dismanteled even more and the installation of the outer cladding above it has started. By this time next week, barring any heavy inclement weather, the base cladding on the West side should be completed with the exception of the service elevator. BTW any ideas as to what that structure is right next to the west side face?

Temporary loading dock. And to the west to that is the temporary PATH station, which will be the future site of the Performing Arts Center.

So, base cladding will most likely be finished in the next days judging by the recent pace and now that the elevator is being taken down, we can expect cladding to wrap around the whole tower in the next weeks as well. I really hope though they'll take that orange netting on the communications ring down as well, that still makes the top look unfinished. Or is that one actually permanent?

There's no way it's permanent.

Also, buh-bye elevator, you won't be missed!

4WTC cladding finishing up. Can't wait for that elevator to come down on 1 WTC.

Don't be too optimistic, it looks like they take down only the uppermost part of the elevator, until the lower end of the mechanical floors with the slotted windows. If you look closely, you can see that they only removed the gates down to this floor, because they will need the elevator to fit out the floors. Similar things are happening at tower 4. The upper part will hopefully be cladded as soon as the elevator is down far enough.
