Sorry, but take your own advise You just responded to my post. I don't frequent this page at all and I was CLARIFYING as there was another building in the area that looked like this and I took the picture from a block away. But I'm glad it is.

2 & 3 won't be above ground for about another year.

A new render of 4.

STR, your work is such well done that it can actually compete with the renderings of a whole company. Just 2 words: Great Job!

Photos taken by Joe Woolhead (the photographer for Silverstein Properties) during November on Tower 4.






I think we should appreciate not only the site, but also the magnificent job that have been making the workers.

Just wondering but how many safety violations can we see in the pictures in post #1269? There are quite a few.

I doubt it's a violation, but everyone is wearing his hard hat backwards. Like kids with their baseball caps...

^ I believe iron-workers typically wear their hard hats backwards.

That's one of the cases where there's a lot of disagreement and interpretation of the regulations but it's done all over invited actually never heard of a citation being issued for it.

The big one I noticed where lack of safety glasses in several of the pictures, particularly the operator of the JLG lift. That's certainly the most noticeable one but there are others. For instance the welder is on top of a scaffold and he does not have fall protection. There are also more.....

Nice..Looks like 4WTC has the same type of construction like 1WTC..I guess we'll have to wait a week or two till they place that blue scaffolding..
