Regulations are one thing and they are certainly required for safety reasons. However, having the regulations define what type of equipment is to be used in banning other suppliers is not a good thing for anybody involved except the suppliers that are allowed! As long as the crane is designed properly for the application and well-maintained it shouldn't matter who it was made by!

Word is Site 5 is being shopped out to developers with an eye towards some sort of hotel/residential space. This makes the most sense to me. The original WTC complex had a hotel and I would like to see the new site have one as well. It's possible, however, that the site will be farmed entirely off the complex, which would make me sad. It would also create a gap in the numbering that would really mess with my OCD lol (Even though there was never a 6WTC in the master plan, I consider the PAC to be "Building 6"). I really hope they keep Site 5 in the complex and develop it as hotel/residential.

i recommend subscribing to this guy, he gives good video updates - for those who have yet to visit the site since the resumption of tower 3, this can give you a good sense of scale.

5WTC is currently a stale proposal. I don't think there are any plans being acted upon for the time being.
