I didn't realize how tall this one was until I saw that last photo. Anyway can't wait until this one tops out.

Keep in mind, when it tops out it will be about 100 feet taller than WTC1 is in that picture.

They are pretty much right on schedule given that they lost a day to the 4th of July

4WTC might seem as a small, unimportant building, but we all have to keep in mind that 1WTC and 4WTC will be the entire WTC for a few years. Even if they get UBS into 3WTC, it'll still take quite some time before construction of the other towers really starts.

Well also, it'll be the second tallest in downtown after 1WTC, and in the top 10 of all NYC. So it really isn't insignificant.

I meant it in roof height. When I measure height I measure it by roof, cause spires and antennas are cheating

The cladding's coming up nicely since the last time I've seen it

is there a reason why the cladding on 4WTC has started on the bottom levels as opposed to 1WTC where the bottom floors haven't been cladded yet? Or am I just overthinking things?

The base of 1WTC is being delayed due to the construction of the blast walls. They are currently re-designing the base facade due to a manufacturing fault with the glass.

I just don't understand one thing, why don't the other buildings have an antiblast concrete bunker like 1WTC has? After all, they are targets just as 1WTC is.
