one comment.

the west crane will likely tie in outside the tower.

check out the deck covering they held back on the top exposed floor. there was also added steel in that area to support the crane base.

so your drawing should have a crane tower going up the middle, outside the building on top of the podium.

Three World Trade Center base model!

Huge credit to Skyscrapers144 for making these diagrams. I just made it a bit more easier to understand what is what side.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the current height of 3WTC right now is 38 meters (124 feet).

They have made progress on the column cladding and have begun to clad the columns on the northern side of the podium. This gives us an Idea of how thick the column cladding will be around the podium.
