Solid steel? That should be insanely heavy.

Impressive stuff. This is really a bad ass tower.

That link above mentions the KKR deal, which wasn't officially announced until October 29, so who knows if the website editors were just lazy about editing the height, or if that 1296' figure represents current plans.
It's 1296'-11" from Datum, 1267'-11' from Lower Lobby level

Forgive my ignorance, but on steel buildings like these, are the floors still layered with concrete? I can see corrugated sheets on the floors, but surely there is more to them than that. I would think concrete floors would add tremendous weight though..

Can someone enlighten me?

Yes they are - it's a traditional concrete slab on metal deck composite construction.
As for the "tremendous weight", it's not that bad - and did you see the size of the columns in the previous pictures? They look like they could handle it...

All the columns are not solid/laminated steel: "only" the columns for the braced frames and slopped columns for the transfer below level 10. And they are not solid/laminated steel all the way up.

But still, it is indeed an impressive amount of steel...

Yeah...no. They are painted on site, if you have a look at the freshly assembled steel, it's all raw.
The connections would def have to be raw as otherwise welders would either get a serious poisoning or die after breathing in the fumes of that stuff as it burns when they weld these massive pieces together.
I wonder if that layer also works as fireproofing as well

Guess that mean they have to demolish the majority of buildings in the city.

The 1 Train runs right under the WTC site.

That is not much of an issue. Let's say that " anybody" can a buy a van or a truck and fill it with explosives to make a terorist attack. But those trains are driven and controlled exclusively by MTA or NJTransit employees. To fill one of those trains with explosives and then drive it under the towers and make it explote will take a huge complot inside MTA or NJ Transit, involving so many employees that is unlikely to happen.

Recent Photos Show Hudson Yards Taking Shape

Quote:
Bordered by 10th Avenue, 11th Avenue, West 30th Street, and West 34th Street, the Eastern Yard is currently a web of cranes and steel. Recent photos depict the mesmerizing scene at the site of phase one, with nearly all of its buildings now under construction.

That filled up fast.

Wells Fargo signs deal to move midtown office to hudson yards
http://nypost.com/2015/12/11/wells-f...-hudson-yards/

Quote:
A San Francisco-based banking giant is making its New York home on the Far West Side.

Wells Fargo Securities confirmed Friday that it has signed on to be a major tenant at 30 Hudson Yards by 2020, thanks to a $5 billion financing package that will bring Wall Street to the Hudson River.

Word that the bank would move to Hudson Yards, which is still under construction, from its current 372,000-square-foot space at 150 East 42nd St. broke last month.

Wells’ capital markets and investment banking business will occupy more than 500,000 square feet at 30 Hudson Yards, in the flagship tower of the sprawling complex of apartment buildings, retail space, businesses and public land.

“Our move into this vibrant new development reinforces our continued commitment to our investment banking and securities business and to New York City,” Tim Sloan, the bank’s president and COO, said in a statement. “30 Hudson Yards is part of a lively neighborhood in New York City that will be a great fit for our clients and team members.”

The announcement comes more than a year after JPMorgan Chase, the largest US bank by assets, dropped its bid to be the anchor tenant at nearby 50-55 Hudson Yards.

That deal was scuttled after Alicia Glen, the deputy mayor for housing and development, said that tax breaks for the company were a “nonstarter.”

In addition to Wells Fargo, other companies that are slated to join the building are private-equity firm KKR, media giant Time Warner and the city’s first Nieman Marcus department store.

I'm surprised they're actually taking up more space in their new lease.
