Next wave of workers from Conde Nast will be moving into the 30th floor 12/12/14, with more the Monday after Christmas into floor 32-34. They could even be fully moved in before February.

Can anyone please tell me why the glass panels on the East side of the podium of the building are yet to be installed and no one seems to be working at it?

Thanks

They'll get to it after they demolish the temporary PATH entrance across from it.

It's actually a temporary loading dock.

PATH will be removed once the hub is done, then the PAC can be built.

PATH is being removed next month. PAC infrastructure has started already.

Just to go off topic for a moment, RAT's in the aviation sense are usually only deployed when there is a loss, for whatever reason, of electrical power in the aircraft. In other words, a RAT is an emergency power device.

Hard to believe this compilation is accurate, but anyway, here it is: 1WTC ranks top of the list...

That's probably correct info but seeing as it's from the Huffington Post I wouldn't doubt that there be discrepancies.
Meanwhile, here's 1 WTC, still looking half incomplete on the inside at night.

It looks like in the bottom part of the 1WTC they used laminated glass, we can see in this photo that they have 3 panes of glass glued together.

What´s the use of these glasses or panels (louvers) ?, sometimes are open and others closed, I just don't get it. And how to they operated them ?
