I like the new WTC in New York City a lot, looks better than the ''boxes design'' of the Twin Towers.... though those two towers were iconic for the city its skyline.

They haven't decided on which crane they're going to bring up. In the meantime, existing crane's got permission.

Is it just me, or does that core look larger than the core within the main WTC building? Its a big building, but that core looks monstrous, and even with the super thick walls, I would expect that core to hold a lot of elevators!

The design looks good. But they lost some uniqueness IMHO

Well, they have just finished up the Western side of the core which extends out for the podium. If you look at an updated photo you will see that the formwork in that area has now been removed, thus reducing the footprint of the core for the tower portion. Everywhere else where the formwork remains - that's your core for the rest of the building.

NYCC is slated to take over the Favco M760D next Monday to start the steel erection (weather permitting).

The plan is to work on the steel erection of the West podium until completion up to the 11th floor, then the M760 may be jumped to also work on the West part of the main tower, while the Potain may be used to work on the East part.

As mentioned by Otie, a final decision has yet to be made regarding which cranes will be used to erect the rest of the steel on the main tower.

How is it possible for the Potain to erect super-structure steel? I thought it has a low load capacity.

Up to 26,000lbs with one-part of line and 53,000lbs with two-part of line - I wouldn't go as far as calling that "low", even though the Wolff or Favco considered for steel erection can do much better.

The columns are the heaviest part and the further away from the Potain, which could be an issue - but it depends how long the column segments are (though adding splice will require extra work and be more expensive).

It appears that both 3WTC and the PATH earth cams got knocked to the right quite a bit. They're currently both pointed up Church St.

Is it really as close to the WTC Transportation Hub as it looks in the picture? That would be unfortunate since the Calatrava building is so much more attractive than the Rodgers and Foster towers that seem to be crowding it.

It's an allusion.

Workers are actually working today at 3 WTC to prepare for steel installation next week.

Warmer temps are forecast for next week....FINALLY we should see much (if not all) the snow melt.
Also on a side note - even though slightly off-topic for this thread....the last remaining unfinished corner of the plaza has been cleared and barricaded off as of today 03-08-15. Looks like it's finally going to be finished.

Yes, it's supposed to be 50s all this week. We should definitely see some nice progress.
