Outokumpu has been selected to provide stainless steel for the facade of 3WTC

Quote:
3 World Trade Center in New York chooses Outokumpu stainless steel for its facade

Outokumpu will deliver the façade material for the prestigious World Trade Center’s third tower in New York City, USA. Once complete, the tower, known as 3 World Trade Center (3WTC), will be a unique addition to the New York skyline with its distinctive and appealing Linen look.

[...]

Outokumpu’s Linen surface finish was not selected by the architects for aesthetic reasons alone. The surface characteristics of the building material have outstanding weather resistance and durability, making it ideal for large exterior expanses. The Linen texture generates particularly soft light reflections, extremely homogenous color gradients and an attractive sheen in sunlight.

Otie, You would know better than anyone. Are the 4 spires separate pieces that will be placed on the roof of the building? Or are the spires the four corner columns just extended above the roof of the building?

They are essentially just the tower's structural columns extended, but they will be separate steel sections just like the rest of the tower.

Hi everyone,


I had bookmarked the webcams allowing me to see the construction site, but now they are completely turned off.

Does anyone have a soltution to this problem? Can any of you see the construction site somehow?

Well they're not turned off but at present the cam is TOTALLY out of focus. Very frustrating; it seems no one is in charge at the moment.

No, they disabled them. On the public earthcam page, it says "Currently unavailable to the public" and only the Hudson WTC view is available.

Cams are back up. Good timing too, they're adding more steel.

A lot of steel being installed on the West-North-south sides of the building, but nothing seems to be happening to the East.... does anyone know when installation will start there as well?
