Indeed it is. And even with both cranes on the steel now up and running, it still seems as if steel erection is sluggish.

Should be above the set back level of 4 WTC by the end of the year.

30 Park Place Tour Offers Exclusive Glimpse of Stern Tower

Quote:
The views from the upper floors of what is being billed as the tallest residential tower in downtown Manhattan are expectedly dramatic. A perfect aerial vantage point of the World Trade Center site gives us an overview of the buildings that are changing the landscape of Lower Manhattan.

Anyone knows the reason why they only clad the northern part of the podium at the moment?

Site Photos Show Progress at World Trade Center Site

Quote:
The massive redevelopment of the World Trade Center site in New York City is one of the most exciting projects under construction in the United States. The new complex is bringing six skyscrapers to the Lower Manhattan location, a venture made possible by a multitude of developers, engineers, builders and architects. On a recent trip to New York, SkyriseCities navigated the area and witnessed firsthand how the development is reshaping the neighbourhood.

Steel erection is going very slow. They've taken almost 3 weeks on 2 floors and they still haven't finished yet. The core is making excellent progress. I think we would have been better off if the rest of the tower was concrete instead of steel because the concrete is on point with the speed. You would think that would take the longest...

Why is cladding taking so slow?

I don't know how many builders work on this project, but if there are less than one would expect on such a huge tower it could explain why steelwork and cladding are slow. Interior work falls behind too I assume.

All WTC related construction is slow. This is complex, extremely expensive work, and safety is under a magnifying glass 24/7.

Yeah, less we forget the debacle that was 1WTC's foundation and base construction. I'm sure the industrial revolution lasted less time than that. I think the best explanation is the omnipresence of bureaucracy at this site in every facet of construction and execution. As well as the physical obstacles, like a lack of space for trucks to idle, meaning bringing in steel and especially cement trucks, is an increasingly complex and arduous process, especially as the complex gets completed more and more.

It's funny, I'd argue the Hudson Rail Yards are more complex from an engineering perspective, yet that project is sailing. Even though it is behind schedule. Truly a testament to the power of the private sector over projects the govt has its hand in.

Hudson Yards Phase 1 is only a year behind schedule give or take but 3 WTC will be mostly complete by then (2019) and 2 WTC will most likely be well into construction around that same time.

I agree, private sector developments are more efficient than government ones and I bet if Silverstein had full ownership and control over the site instead of the Port Authority, the entire new WTC complex could've been completed by now.

3 WTC will actually be complete before 2019. It will be open to the public in 2018.
