Yeah, I don't know what's taking so long to clean it. They've only done two out of eight faces so far and they started months ago

As I've already stated, Durst has only secluded to clean this twice a year. Once all of it is cleaned, that won't seem like a stupid decision as the cladding on this actually takes a really long time to get significantly dirty.

Used to be December, now end of October, possibly sooner for some areas of the tower.

So I'll be able to get my picture taken giving this tower a good bear hug? Sweet! I wanted that photo op with the original WTC towers but never got the chance. So I'll have to settle for the new One WTC.

So if it's scheduled to be cleaned 2 times a year why didn't they clean the whole tower the first time? Are you saying they used their "first time of the year" to only clean less than half of the tower?

If you guys remember, when they cleaned that one little strip, was when all those little round looking things appeared on a bunch of the cleaned windows. Go back in the thread and check out the pictures from the following days after they did it. I have a feeling they were checking the windows for leaks, and the round dot things have something to do with repositioning or resealing the windows. I highly doubt any of that cleaning was actual cleaning because if it was, they surely missed a whole bunch of Tower I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't do a complete cleaning at all, until early next year.

All you need is an intense storm to give it a pressure wash! I can't wait to see it all nice and sparkling clean too.

The dust is mostly from interior carpentry.

Woah, fence down!

That base really is pretty imposing from the street... It's too bad the security concerns were so crazy.

Imposing? Sure.
