Some good news on the construction front. From IrishinNYC on WiredNY

Tower portion is back on the street for bid from what I hear.
What does this mean? infoshare explains

No not 'necessarily'. Putting a project out 'on the street' for bids (particularly when the drawings are only the schematic design phase) can be nothing more than putting out 'feelers' for pricing/financing purposes: it is not 'proof positive' - as you say - that a firm deal has been made for a future lease. That being said; one can take the new bidding activity as a least 'a good sign' or indicator that this tower may move ahead to the construction phase.

I see new rebar at the top of the core sticking out. Maybe this is a sign that we will indeed go beyond the podium. Won't be long until the steel reaches the top of the core that has been built already.

i think this might be a bit misleading as the building has already been detailed or at least released for detailing.

Yep the concrete really has stopped pouring. However it is good to see that work on the podium hasn't stopped.

That sucks. Looks like the podium is still the only part that will be built for now (as we already expected).

I haven't seen any progress on the podium though, even after Sandy.

They've put up more steel since the hurricane. The highest level of steel was erected within the last week or so.

Since then the stock markets have been falling here, and it has been announced that Europe is officially back in recession. Not a good sign for 3WTC and other projects.

That's just because of the fiscal cliff, the fall of the stock market that is. The S&P is still up 200+ points in the past 12 months...

Looks like SFRM crews are working on the ground level floor. Patti and Sons doing 3WTC too?

How high up does that concrete core rise in the building? Will it go all the way to the top or does it stop at a certain point?

I dunno for sure but I guess it will go to the bottom of the parapet as in the case of 1WTC and the mech equipment will be laying on the top of it.

a little old, but with a building going up this slow, it's hardly noticeable:

from http://www.wtc.com/news/c/construction-updates

WTC Construction Update, November 2012


3 World Trade Center

Concrete placements for above grade decks are proceeding. Steel columns are being extended from the 6th to the 7th floor with spray-fire proofing operations beginning on the 2nd floor. Installations of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection utilities and CMU walls are continuing on all below grade levels. Three tower cranes are now active on site: two for steel erection and one for concrete operations. The tower's lower podium reached its full seven-story height in November 2012. Fabrication of curtain wall panels has also begun in facilities in Connecticut, Canada, and Italy.

I wish they would reclad 22 Cortlandt Street... It's the one building I don't like next to the WTC site.

It makes this tower cladding even more beautiful.
