What are the white things on the horizontal beam above the south entrance? I think the east entrance is the same.

Those are stainless steel anchor points, covered in white protective film. They have to to with the cable net wall for the entrance, it's complicated.

PS: The beams above all four entrances have them.

Just curious: Has the Deutsche Bank demolition been completed?

Does the core will be built in concrete?

Because, I cannot figure out how the forms will be put in place with the steel structure in the way.

Yes it does, but I was thinking the same thing. Forming is going to be a real pain and take an awful lot more time with all the steel in the way.

The core lagged behind with WTC7, did it not? That thing shot up like a rocket.
