as far as I saw today they are erecting a crane on the building corner. I think it is becoming an active construction now.

Good news. I can't think of any other reason why they would erect a new crane if not for new construction.

If the tenants decide to back out in November it'll be so sad.

Wow, the base cladding is very reflective. You can't tell what colour it is.

How fast is the building process on this type of scraper?

Slower or faster than 432 as an example?

Probably more like 1WTCs construction speed, I think.

Ping An is the only one I'm aware of faster than 432.

The cladding certainly turned out amazing (from what we can see so far) Hope to see some more progress today after things slowed down because the mobile crane could not reach to the middle section it seemed.

The prospective deal for GroupM to anchor Larry Silverstein’s 3 World Trade Center is moving along, sources said — but slowly.

The global ad giant signed a term sheet with Silverstein for 515,000 square feet last July, as we first reported. A completed lease would pave the way for Silverstein to build the tower, now at the 7-story podium level, to its full, 80-story height.

We wrote at the time that the deal might be finished this year. Although that’s still possible, insiders said early in 2014 is more like it.

The slow pace is apparently over reconciling GroupM’s specific needs with the contours and characteristics of the Richard Rogers-designed skyscraper.

“Like the movie title, ‘it’s complicated,’ ” a source told us. “Remember, Condé Nast at 1 WTC and Coach at Hudson Yards took a long time, too.”

A completed lease would release $1.3 billion in low-interest Liberty Bonds financing. The tower’s total development cost is $2 billion.

In other places you can build a megatall with that amount of $$$.
