Yes. It usually snows until about mid-April. This year has had much higher than average snowfall, though.

Inside us,
When you see it being built believe it. Until then it's just someone's imagination and a pretty drawing.

And yes, it is completely the wrong place.

The floor plates are finished on the top base level. I see no steel on site for the first office level. Slow due to weather, or planned pause to complete the base inside?

It's probably the weather. We've been bombarded with snow or rain weekly for the past month or so.

Not going to happen. At least not in the next 10 years. Btw every now and then some bureau comes with some extraordinary plans just to get some attention.

I wonder if they have stopped to do a design review.

I was also wondering if they don't build tower 2 and/or 3 would they make tower one taller?

The good thing about the base being the strongest steel ever made is that is entirely possible, likely....no. BTW wtf is up with the core it hasnt moved in months.

It seems to me that there is so much advance planning that involves various companies who are providing such things as elevators that once a project gets to a certain point you just can't suddenly change the whole design to make it taller. I'm sure that every little detail has already been worked out and there are probably a great many pieces of this building that have already been manufactured and are in the pipeline ready to be shipped to the site when they're needed.

Does anyone know when the cladding will begin?
Sorry... Q3 2010, I read the post a couple of pages
back after I posted this message.

I'm thinking as I'm looking at the pictures...
Don't you think they over built this thing?

That's because it's been the middle of winter the past few months and they can't pour concrete unless the temperature is above 32 degrees F, otherwise it'll just freeze and the concrete won't be any good. However, the core actually did start rising again about two weeks ago, when there started to be a lot of days where the temp got into the 40s. If you look at the pics from a few pages back you can see that the southern core is all the way at the very top of the lobby and the northern half is one jump away.

What you don't like fort trade center? Thats not a question. It goes without saying, they are not over building this thing. And who ask if they was making it taller, why in gods name would they do that.
