The next two floors of core steel were installed today. That takes it up to the 36th floor, which is exactly 400 feet. There is also another few feet for the splice.

The floors are not numbered consecutively, the base is floors 1 through 6, the first office floor is numbered 20.

They are ramping up to a floor a week, they should be very close to that now. If they didn't have to wait for the core concrete they could do 10 floors a month.

Yep, no question those are tower sections, and that looks like a crane cab.

Is that a base piece on the back of that truck? I'm going to guess it's the "climbing crane". Going to be very interesting to see how it all comes together.

The entire complex? Impossible to say. It really just depends on if there is a demand for office space, which currently there is in NYC. My guess is sometime around if 2018.

1WTC on the other hand should be complete in 2013.

Yes, I thought the whole complex. I didn't know that the construction depends on the need for office spaces.
Thanks.

Tower One 2013, Tower 4 around 2013 also, Tower 3 soon after that as long as Silversteen can find tenants. The only tower in danger of being a stub is Tower Two.

By the time Tower Two gets close to being finished as a stub I bet things well be far better than they are now.

My guess is the entire WTC site well be finished by 2016.

What do they always say about real estate ? Location, location, location. Not to mention that the towers well be the most modern in the city with all the latest amenities.
