Yeah, shouldn't be long before this one goes U/C. Now if only Conde Nast would change their mind from 1WTC to 3WTC...

Be realistic. You can't expect 50 workers to just appear with a dozen cement trucks ready to pour.

I'll bet work will star after the 4th of july.

Is there anyone who follow WTC complex construction detailed like me? (saves all the pics and infos and stuff)

Cuz I would like to talk about some serious construction stuff..

Does anyone has some renders of the underground structure of this tower? Or some infos?
As I know there should be 2 underground levels...
So it would be great to know how deep they will dug, what's the next on the schedule, etc.

Here are some cross section diagrams of 3WTC. I don't have em any larger, so you can't read the height figures. But you get the idea of the layout of the building.

From Richard Rogers website. http://www.richardrogers.co.uk/rende...=true&pageID=1

So according to those renders, there will be 4 underground levels..Just like in tower 4...And according to those pics below, they're already down at that level..They have to move just that little part next to the tower 4...Knowing that piles are in the ground they should start underground floors soon after they remove that soil left next to the tower 4...

Pic from 19th last month..

Construction begins at WTC Tower 3

THE REAL DEAL
By Yaffi Spodek
July 09, 2010 10:30AM

Construction is starting today at World Trade Center Tower 3, one of four planned skyscrapers in a spiral structure to be built by Silverstein Properties at the World Trade Center site, according to Janno Lieber, president of World Trade Center Properties, an affiliate of Silverstein Properties.

"This is an exciting moment in this project," Lieber said Wednesday at a Bisnow-sponsored conference addressing the state of the construction industry. "We now have the entire WTC site under development, with 7.5 million square feet of space from Towers 2, 3 and 4."

First up in what is expected to be a four-year project at Tower 3 is the mobilization stage, a precursor to the excavation period, when the foundation contractor, the Laquila Group, will start drilling through the rock to create the tower's footing, said Dara McQuillan, Silverstein's senior vice president of marketing and communications, in a follow-up interview. Once the excavation is complete, the Laquila Group will be able to start pouring the concrete footing, he said.

It is unclear how long the first phase of construction will last, but the entire Tower 3 project, located at 175 Greenwich Street, is slated for completion in December 2014, McQuillan said. Tower 4, Lieber noted at the conference, is scheduled to open in 2013.

With 54 office floors, Tower 3 includes 2.5 million square feet of office space and five trading floors. The site will have three retail floors from the ground floor to the third floor plus two below grade. The tower, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, will have a reinforced concrete core and columns with steel girders and beams. Bound by Greenwich Street to the right, Church Street to the east, Dey Street to the north and Cortlandt Street to the south, Tower 3 is at the center of the WTC memorial site development. The complex -- with an estimated price tag of close to $1 billion -- includes four new skyscrapers on Greenwich Street plus a fifth on Liberty Street, a Sept. 11 memorial and museum, a WTC transportation hub, a retail complex and a performing arts center.

The entrance to the three-level public lobby of Tower 3 is on Greenwich Street, with views of the entire WTC memorial project.

Great to see this one starting. I can't wait to see everything built to street level. No more hole. That'll be a great day.

If Conde Nast does move to the WTC, I'd like to see half their space go into 1WTC and the other half into this one. That way they'll get their financing from the PA.
