I just wonder when the heck the owners of 1WTC and 4WTC will get around to washing the windows on those towers. They still look really dirty after all this time!

It will be amazing when they start steel erection on the east side of the tower

Unfortunately that won't come for a while. With the modifications coming to the current Favco, that will allow it to erect roughly half of the west side only.

Wow 3WTC (175 Greenwich Street) already surpassed the tallest skyscraper in South Carolina and now it's about to surpass it's cousin 133 Greenwich street

I'm just glad they are keeping this going while they wait on the other cranes. Once that happens they will be able to catch up fairy quickly with steel on the east side I would think.

Any idea when that will happen? And have they started pouring cement on the floors of the steel structure?

It will likely be a couple of months. And no, no pouring yet.

Looking at the 3WTC cam it appears there is a piece of white crane near where the southwest crane is going. You can see it in the reflection of T4. Wonder if that's for the podium crane or possibly the next one?

Boom inserts to lengthen the boom from 135' to 195' on the podium Crane.
The lengthening of the boom is supposed to happen tomorrow.
