They will have to change the formwork for the core, once they reach the lobby's ceiling, I can see no way how they could overcome that steel beams for the first floor in the southwest corner.

Or maybe they are reinstalling them above the floorplates? Anyway thats a weird construction schedule, because the concrete comes last.


BTW: North core steel looks complete now.

The base has chamfered corners so the "lean" is deliberate and permanent.

Tower 2 is definitely gonna happen, even the Port Authority is willing to help with it. Tower 3 is a bit sticky. My own bet is that it will happen as designed since the financial sector, which has badly over-contracted out of panic, will need to re-expand in the near future to meet demand and Tower 3 was always designed to accommodate a large financial firm.

To expand a bit here. The tunnels used by PATH today were originally built for the H&M. The tracks ran across what is now the WTC site and terminated in a loop station where Tower 3 and the new PATH hub will go. When they built the WTC they built a new train station in the middle of the site and cut off the old H&M terminal which was demolished above ground with the below ground infrastructure remaining which was boarded off and occasionally used as storage.

Wow, those are some Grade A pictures! Very nice, now we’re really starting to see the size of this tower.

They are quite massive in person lol. I wasn't the only one's taking pictures, lucky they had the small fence open.

In the second picture, around the middle, you can see the helmet of one of the workers fastening a bolt or whatever its called lol. They were doing metal work still around 5:30pm when I was there.

So I take it now it will start rising at a decent (all things considered) pace?

Wouldn't that be nice. With the added steel on the north core, maybe we'll see the crane jump again soon. I don't believe the next level of perimeter columns can go in until they add more steel above the cores. Also we've still gotta wait for the west plaza level to finish.

But it is nice to see the full size of this tower finally become visible.

Also, rumor (from WNY) has it, the next crane will be a Manitowoc 18000 (even bigger than the east sides crane) and could arrive by the end of next week.

Not an engineer here...those massive outer beams are going to be supporting most of the weight of the building, right?

On a good day the core will support most of the weight. But, on a bad day, as in an earthquake, hurricane, collision, or anything else that moves the building, the columns need to be able to take the weight.

That's a 660 ton beast. I wonder what they'd need that for.
Maybe Chris Christie is coming to visit.

The final vertical column on the east side has been sitting on a truck all day. Or is the webcam frozen again?

Pretty sure it froze again. Unless buses are suddenly allowed to be parked on the highway.

Edit: Nevermind. Scene changed, lol.

Why would the buses be moving? It's a still picture.
