Here is another shot with better light.

Well, I'm not sure about it. But when it falls from the truck and breaks to peaces we know it was made of glass

Although the color is pretty weird- they are in the current size to be cladding pieces.
Oh well, I guess we will have to wait a day or two in order to be sure.

Do you guys think they will start the office cladding before the base?

According to the original construction schedule, the podium glass is to be first.

I`m a Norwegian (sorry for my english) who has followed this baby since before it was born, its great to see so much progress this summer, go back and check out pictures from e.g april 2010. AMAZING progress this summer. Sorry to see all negative comments about the progress on this forum, why cant we just enjoy this great building and it`s awakening? Lets hope the cladding is about to start and please do NOT write stupid comments when people believe they see that!

A little fun fact: This month, WTC1 will be higher than Norways tallest highrise, we don`t even have a skyscraper.

I don't think that it's cladding. It might be something going in the lobby, or perhaps entirely different
