Nothing is on hold, they just all are very slow like they have been and will be! The politicians and unions will insure they aren't completed very quickly.

What are all the white frames sitting just to the left all the crane hook? They look too neat and nicely painted to the scaffolding.

I didn't know the actually made new supports for table forms that looked pretty liked that! I thought new ones actually came rusted and cruddy looking.

It looks as though their has been quite a bit of progress surrounding the north core recently. It's looking real likely that it'll jump soon.

Nobody cares what Trump has to say. Shit like this is why his supertall projects in NY get killed. All I know is this building is better then anything Trump could come up with. Plus knowing him, he might haved named it Trump World Trade, Casino and Condeminiumcon Center. No thanx Trump

The more I hear Trump talk, the more I think he's a pompous numskull; the imbecile is just jealous because Silverstein makes him look like second-rate developer in his own town. Go move to Dubai or Chicago and spend what's left of your quasi-successful, exaggerated career as you fade away, Trump; no one wants to hear you moan and whine about a project that is approved, financed, fully designed, and under construction - and while you're at it, spend a little on your hair so your comb-over won't look like a dead furry animal since it's the only "catastrophe" I can see. Just about every large tower is a white elephant after it is completed and remains that way until people get comfortable; however, at least this tower already has tenants and companies are interested. Hard times with money or not, even the first WTC was built.

Not at all
As you probably know concrete is liquid when it's poured. To prevent it from flowing away it need so called 'forms'. Forms are strong wooden or steel plates which keep the concrete on it's place till it strong and hard enough to support it's own weight. When the concrete is hard enough the forms are being removed.
When we build a floor we use so called table forms, which is nothing more than steel or wooden plates placed on some scaffholding. It looks like a giant table, so thats why they're called table forms

quite interesting thing about the table forms though, the concrete doesn't stick to it.
