Concrete pouring via a large bucket happened yesterday where the climbing formwork was installed. The bucket was handled by the crane.

It must of been a very small pour since that's such an inefficient way to pour concrete in a structure like this.

One at the west podium (where the old west crane was and there is temporary decking) that will stay until the podium is done, then one at the northeast and one at the southwest. both internal climbing.

So has anyone else been having issues with the webcams, or is it just me? This is what I see.

Nope, it's like that for me too. Conveniently cuts out both 3WTC and the PATH hub.

These pictures look about 2 weeks old. No crane in the pictures on the facebook page between 3wtc and 4wtc.

Nice!

I'm guessing the tower crane will be coming in soon so that the steel columns and stuff can be erected ?

But good to see the core has risen!

3 WTC is actually ahead of schedule at the moment. That concrete pump was not expected to be installed for another few weeks. The original plan was to pour about two floors in the core with the bucket.
