Indeed. The curtain wall instalation stopped to the 25th floor about a month ago, ironworkers are still working on the 56th floor... No new vertical steel beams visible since a while. If you look carefully to all the photos, you could say that all of them where taken during a time of 2 weeks. The only major visible progress is, perhaps, the cladding of the Northwest corner.
It's all about patience, they are no major delays and the working is on schedule... Only one month more and snow will dissapear.

There's no more big storms coming and the temps are getting a little warmer so things will pick up soon.

They have been doing the north west corner of the building for the last 2-3 weeks. The entire North West corner had no curtain wall prior. As you can see in the 1st photo on this page they are up to the 5th level and will be starting on the 6th. Once the curtain wall is even all around we will start to see it go higher.

My laptop is experiencing some energy problems, I'll be absent for at least a week.

Meanwhile, I'll leave a note from Associated Press.

Wall Street Journal
Associated Press
NEW YORK — The quest for tenants to fill the floors at 1 World Trade Center has gone global — all the way to China.
A private real estate developer connected to the project is heading to a conference of business leaders in China this weekend. Douglas Durst of the Durst Organization says 1 World Trade Center has generated "tremendous interest" among Chinese companies that are thinking about opening international offices.

The first completed deal for a tenant in the tower has been with a Chinese real estate company, Vantone Industrial, which signed a lease in 2009 for about 200,000 square feet.

The building was formerly known as the Freedom Tower. When it's completed, it will be the tallest building in the country with an antenna bringing it to 1,776 feet.

Thats good news right?

And slightly off topic but on a related note, if all of these Chinese tennats try to lease parts of 1WTC, maybe there'll be no space left and theyll have to go to 2 and 3WTC, meaning that construction on those two wont be held back

Went down to the WTC construction site today for the first time in about 4 months.

All I can say is - WOW, what a site and how much it has changed in a few months!!. 1 WTC is awesome, 4 WTC is now clearly a skyscraper under construction, the cranes for 2 WTC are visible and the entire rest of the site is a beehive of activity. This is far and away the most active construction site I have ever seen in NY. I would guess that it is currently the most active site in the entire US and possibly one of the more active sites in the world.

For those with the ability to get to NY I would highly recommend coming in April through June. WTC 1 & 4 will be even more imposing and still largely "nude" (which makes them more interesting in my book) and the rest of the site will be growing too.

Reconstruction is in full swing and once the weather gets a little better and the buildings a bit bigger it will be a site to behold. Well worth a moderately prices airline flight or long car drive if you can do it.

(I still wish they were making these buildings 10 to 15% bigger but that does nothing to detract from the beauty of the construction)

It hasn't been going slow, other than last month and that was because it was one of the worst months weather-wise NYC has ever seen. It'll get back to the usual floor a week in no time.
