So beautiful.

I'm so tired of seeing the gaps at the top and the sides.

@ThatOneGuy, me too, but the way I look at it, every day of seemingly slow progress is one more day closer to a finished project. I can only hope that by the time this building opens, two and three WTC will be well on their way. in the meantime, its wonderful to watch one and four's glass rise every day.

It sucks that the KPTVI cams are down. Lately, Earthcam has hardly been a worthy alternative, despite the awesome live views.

the building makes me feel like it's the head of a rhino. the converging part of the building below 220 metres resembles nose and the cranes the ears. justa joke...

We need people to update this forum more frequently. SO much progress is being made with 4WTC. Cladding is going up on the north side where the crane elevator was. What we need is more dedication from photographers in the city updating us with current pictures. What's going on with the lobby? Does anyone have any photographs with current progress of the lobby? I am very interested in seeing lobby progress. And when is cladding expected to be completely finished and topped for the entire building?

^ Agreed. I basically rely on this forum and Earthcam for building updates, and it would be great to have more people posting pictures and information on here. This building gets less attention than 1 WTC, and it would be nice to see more of it.

There hasn't been much done to either of the buildings these last few days. The weather has been pretty bad.

This guy does monthly updates on the WTC. Subcribe!

Excellent photos.

I think the metal part at the top will be exposed, so that should mean glass has reached full height.
Those two missing panels in the corner are aggravating

How much progress has been done with cladding over the gap where the crane elevator was on the north side of the building?

Crazy that these supposed-to-be strong glass panels get broken too often and 4 wtc's already had enough of it...
