Any news on when the south-facing external hoist might begin to come down?

I'm greatly anticipating the day when all cladding is complete on this building and when they give the facade a fresh window washing so we can see it in all its glory. Why is it taking so long to clad the west side of the building? I figured they would have completed it by now at least.

That glass cladding is definitely the coolest thing of this tower.

I really like this building in all its simplicity and elegance. The cladding is probably the best I've ever seen on a skyscraper.

Although I think it would have been even more beautiful when they applied the vented cladding (just below the setback) on the south side of the building instead of the north side, as it was originally planned:


(Rendering by Otie O'Daniel)

Not that I don't like the absence of vented cladding on those two floors the south side that much, but I just think the north side would have looked better without it.

Otie is a true master in making renders and the building looks so good

So...What's the word with 4WTC now? It looks like cladding on the east side is creeping towards completion...finally... Does anyone have any pictures from inside the lobby? We seem to have a plethora of images of the structures facade but never on the inside. Would love to see the elevator corridors

at this rate i'd say the cladding should be complete early-mid May, they finished off the Eastern side today.

Thanks to a few idiots the 1WTC thread has been locked, so I'll post this here for now...

I believe this is the first time we've seen this type of crane jumping anywhere at the new WTC complex:

They used one for the Deutsche Bank Building demolition, where the VSC now stands.

WOW This looks almost like a bare rendering, taking note of the details...

The invisibility cloak on this tower is magical. I suspect wizardry.
