Your eyes are even better I thought it's the same crane and they just removed something from the boom..

So probably the smaller LTM is erecting the steel columns which are out of reach for the eastern tower crane?!

edit: it just came to my mind that another (mobile) crane has already erected many columns on the south-eastern side some time ago.. so maybe the new one is working on the podium of tower 4?

Indeed, I was also wondering why they'd remove the boom from the LTM 1500 just to move it a few meters. It's the same LTM 1350 that lifted the steel columns at the south side and the first TG2300 a few months ago.

Edit for oli83: columns at the SE corner weren't erected back then. They're just missing two or three I guess, so it shouldn't take long.

It's hard to say but if I had to say it's probably for the columns out of reach of the new tower crane, if you go back a few hours on the KPI cam it looks like it was reaching over there. Seems like it would never happen but I wonder if we will see another tower crane on that corner

ok, so the white members now being erected at the top deck level. My guess is they start pulling the crane mast up in order to do the infill. Then that steel acts as the support platform for the future crane when the rest of the tower is erected?

Cant think of any good reason why that steel would be painted other than it would be exposed for a long period of time.

ideas?

An area that will be walled off around the crane allowing the crane tower to be left there and the stump to be furnished without water coming in until construction resumes. IDK I'm stumped, that's all I can think of. the crane is not equipped with the necessary mechanism to lift the base of the tower.

Why is floor space so little? The core takes up the whole building from the way it looks. The more I observe the more I can't understand the floor space on Tower 3. I imagine like as soon as you step out of the elevator on a floor your literally 5 feet away from reaching the windows.

Looks can be deceiving.

Will this building have encased beams in the core like tower 1?

The steel transition at the top of the podium on the West side is going to be interesting. The columns for the upper part are nowhere near wher the podium columns are.

Look at the floor layouts above. The elevator bank for the poduim is gone in the upper floors. The columns line up perfectly.

Tonight it looks like they laid big pipes next to WTC3 in order to pump all the water that is underground.

I guess this tower suffered little damage except for a flooded basement?

Is there any danger of corrosion (sorry if I spelled it wrong) due to the fact that it was flooded with saltwater?
