Mobile crawler crane. the old one wasn't strong enough so they needed a bigger one. I think we'll see a lot of progress on the memorial the coming week since the slurry wall reinforcement is almost finished.

You can find the links on wtcprogress.com, to the right side under "NEWS & UPDATES".

On a side note, it looks like they've opened up the formwork for the south core, which means they should be raising it soon.

I think laying the blame on the construction unions is wrong. This is not taking long because of shoddy work or lazy union workers. This is just an enormously complex project that is tied to several other enormously complex projects. Things have to be done in a certain way and in a certain sequence and no amount of union busting would ever change that. I've already posted the only ways that things might have been sped up and they involved decisions that would have made the local residents quite justifiably angry.

Those are pieces of wood or something which were put there to leave indentations for the steel to later be installed. For some reason they just haven't removed the wood yet.

1WTC won't be fully above street level for at least another 8-10 months sadly. Their is still much work to be done around the north core. Next year their are plans to halt some of the PATH traffic so work can be done all day long.

But at least work is progressing around the south core. It should be all the way to street level soon early next year. With new steel soon going up in the northern end of the Memorial, they can begin working on the Fulton street deckover early next year as well. So things are progressing as well as can be expected.

A part of the below-ground concourse leading people from the PATH station to the World Financial Center across the street. There will be shops to the left side of the picture. This is what it will look like when done:



Though, the design has changed slightly since this rendering. The arches above will be on a straight slant rather than curved. (I kind of like the curved look better, but oh well.)
