No way, not yet. There are hundreds of taller buildings between ESB and 1WTC! It is a LONG way between them. That will be a great day when you can see the two together.

I am travelling to NYC in April and staying at the Millenium Hilton. That hotel has absolutely the BEST view of the construction site.

ding ding ding ding............

The rebuilding schedule at the World Trade Center site is once again up in the air.

Arbitrators have given the Port Authority, which owns the land, and developer Larry Silverstein 45 days to renegotiate a construction timetable.

The decision was handed down after Silverstein sought damages and rent abatement for infrastructure delays.

The arbitration panel denied those requests, but relaxed a provision which would have stripped Silverstein Properties of development rights to Towers 2, 3 and 4 if they are not completed on time.

In statements, both sides had a positive reaction to the panel's order to head back to the negotiation table.

http://www.ny1.com/1-all-boroughs-ne...-wtc-timetable



WTC developer Larry Silverstein denied $3.5B Port Authority payoff for Ground Zero delays

Developer Larry Silverstein was slapped down Wednesday in his bid to snag $3.5 billion in penalties from the Port Authority because of building delays at Ground Zero.

An impartial panel of construction experts nixed Silverstein's demand to pocket $788 million in rent relief and shut the door on his bid for $2.7 billion in future damages.

Silverstein had argued the PA's failure to build the Transportation Hub, Vehicular Security Center and other key structures at the World Trade Center site crippled his ability to finance and market three towers along Church St.

Claiming he was entitled to 10 years of free rent - plus a fat payday for damages - Silverstein took the case to arbitration in August, blaming the PA for blowing its obligations under a 2006 Master Development Agreement.

The three-member panel shot him down.

"We are not persuaded by [his] claim that the PA acted in bad faith and thereby breached the agreement," the ruling said.

The panel said Silverstein failed to show the PA's "action or inaction" at Ground Zero delayed construction of his WTC towers.

Gov. Paterson quickly applauded the ruling, calling it "the most responsible approach to rebuilding at the WTC site - to move the project forward in a way that protects the public's resources."

Moving to end the bitter and costly battle over the sacred site, the panel gave the agency and the builder 45 days to develop a new set of schedules to rebuild Ground Zero - or else.

If the feuding parties fail to come to terms, the panel said it would dictate how the 16 acres are rebuilt.

New timetables and funding schemes could also mean new delays at the troubled site and an uncertain fate for some key buildings.

"I'm ready to work with the PA 2-4/7 to hammer out a deal assuring that the World Trade Center is fully rebuilt as quickly as possible," Silverstein said.

"One thing is clear from the ruling," Mayor Bloomberg said in a statement. "There is a deal to be made."

Looks like the Earthcam has been stuck for 3-4 days now. You can see the new vertical steel on the south side from the RGZ cam.

A more in depth article regarding the arbitration situation.

From the Downtown Express,
"W.T.C. decision sends sides back to the table

By Josh Rogers

Both sides claimed qualified victory in the World Trade Center dispute after an arbitration panel ruled Tuesday on some issues, but ordered the parties to negotiate a new rebuilding schedule in 45 days.

W.T.C. developer Larry Silverstein, who was asking for a few billion dollars in damages from the Port Authority for numerous violations of their 2006 Master Development Agreement (M.D.A.), received no money Tuesday, but the panel voided the provision that would have awarded the development rights to the three most viable tower sites back to the Port if the buildings are not completed in 2013 — which is virtually impossible at this point.

The confidential, 22-page decision obtained by Downtown Express first came to light in a Crain’s article Wednesday afternoon, prompting each side to quickly release statements praising it."

It's St. Paul's Chapel. There's also graves at Trinity Church nearby at the end of Wall Street.

The graveyard shot is very cool...almost looks like the headstones are "watching" the building go up. Could also be one of the most expensive graveyards in the world, if the land were priced at its true value per sq foot!

I understand that this is not a webcam complaint forum, it is about the construction of 1WTC. HOWEVER, as I enjoy watching the daily progress of the site, I have to say that as THE MOST IMPORTANT CONSTRUCTION SITE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, these should be the best, most reliable web cams in the country.

Someone please fix the HD cam (PER MAN ANT LEE), and then walk over to the RGZ cam and put a black velvet blanket around it to CUT THE GLARE!

Rant over

They do the best they can, and the HD cam is back on now.

As for glare, the guy was nice enough to put the camera there, so stop complaining and thank them for putting it in.
