That sounds like good news, Silverstein has some good arguments for the full development of the towers.

I'll say bring Manitowoc 31000

that thing will take one swing and level half of Manhattan

On serious note: Manitowoc 18000 is the largest crane on a site, I would say Manitowoc 21000 but his boom is less than 18000 and Manitowok 31000 is not being delivered until next year to North Carolina company. I wonder what we will get...

they recently added some temporary steel work in the north east section of the site -- eastern edge of Fulton OVER the PATH roof.

My guess is that will be the foundation to put this new crawler crane. They placed the steel right on the vertical support beams.

I agree. If someone bothers you enough that you feel compelled to tell them to off themselves, just hit "Ignore" in the first place.

Anyway, back on topic: It's amazing how fast this sucker is rising. The steel for the southwest corner has also reached level with the rest of the memorial plaza; hopefully that will be filled in soon. The southeast corner of the South Pool is also really starting to take shape.

Wow, is the building supposed to be that thin? The foundation looks thinner than the WTC 7 and the World Financial Center

That's a temorary support to hold up the ends of the arches while they pour the concrete deck. It will be removed soon.

I think he was referring to this steel. Looks like this maybe for the crawler crane. If they put it over the PATH roof they won't have to constantly move it back and forth. This should allow them to complete Fulton Street.

Just a guess though. I might be totally wrong.

Was the crawler crane meant to speed up the ongoing construction work?

They are mostly involved in moving pieces/equipment related to Fulton steet and the east-west corridor from WFC. Working on those areas frees up the larger cranes to focus more on 1WTC.

yes.. that is what I was referring to..thanks for the graphic

I think that will be the location of this "massive"crane mentioned int he recent WTC update..capable of lifting the massive beams scheduled to span the transit hall.

I'm guessing it will be on Church St. Either there or in the eastern bathtub. I can't imagine it on top of that frail looking PATH hall roof. I think it'll probably take the place of the yellow crane on Church st. That one is being used to help with the H&M demo. I'm guessing the new crane probably won't be placed until early next year though.

Maybe it could go in 3WTC's site. If Silverstein wins the arbitration case next month, hopefully we'll see 2WTC start.

If you look closely at the picture above the horizontal steel is all laid on the vertical beams providing weight distribution to carry the load of a large crane.


Time will tell. The other option is on Greenwich Street as I understand it is proposed to reach well into the eastern Pit. Maybe in the eastern Pit itself.
