So are the remaining sets of beams that will outline the perimeter of the tower still going to be erected in May as planned?

No there will only be 4 (four) towers on the site, closer together, with 60,000 to 80,000 ft. floorplates, all will have concrete cores, and the crane on the freedom tower site will be used to build up to ground level. (however, the crane tower section will most likely be attached to a jacking frame, the base you see now will be removed after enough core has risen to accomidate the jacking frame(s) they will add more cranes later

I think you'll find that the crane there now will go all the way up.. it's already sitting on the base plate of a hoist system for a steel building.

Yes, i'm sure that the crane you see here will be used on the upper frame, (the mast or tower section, and the boom will be shortened) however the base plate does not seem to have any noticeable hydrolic system on its legs for jacking, if this base does jack, it will lose the legs.

If you go back to my last post, or maybe the one before, you'll find an explanation for hoisting.... We dont build steel buildings here.. just concrete cores... If you go into OZ scarpers.. you'll see how they hoist through a concrete core.. but back to steel... it's the same framne base that was used at the TIMES HQ.. and they went all the way up..

Here's a link for our Cranes thread...

The timeline depends on the cooperation between developers, financers, architects, city officials, etc. etc. I think this project would have been much better served with a different developer with less ego.

I am not surprised about this, especially when I heard that steel is not going to arrive there for months that it will not even rise until the start of next year hence this is very much a premature start.

Can you chill with the 20 million questions? The building will take a while to construct, just like any other concrete structure of this size. Just relax and don't look at the thread for a few weeks.
