I think the street is going to be widened a fair bit.

The site looks like it's really coming together finally. At least people don't have to stare at a huge empty space on the corner anymore, and 1WTC is looming in the background. Good progress, this is exciting.

Sorry for the newbie question but, is the building company the same for 1WTC and 4WTC? I mean 2 companies in economics competition, or 2 different teams of the same?
In any case they should make a race!

Nice! Another crane and more perimeter steel. Slowdown or not, this tower continues to get bigger!

I believe the red pieces on trailers are the climbing sections for the current tower crane.

The existing crane should be capable of jumping all on its own (hence the nickname "kangaroo crane").

Looks to me like it is a base section for the second tower crane.

good to see that 4WTC is on its way up. last week i was afraid (and somehow convinced) it would be put on hold, but thankfully i was proven otherwise. as i said before 1WTC needs at least one partner tower when it's finished to look good.
