I was using the shape of the new street in relation to the building to judge that, so i might be wrong. But it looks like they only have a little bit of space for that western most bay, if it is there. Seems that the street would but right against the building...

...not to assume too much

The steel we're seeing will support the upper retail floors, which don't extend to the western perimeter columns, these floors are supported by four columns on the western end and according to plans all four go all the way down to the subgrade floors, though judging by the photo it seems the two inner thinner ones get joined to the outer ones... hmm interesting..

Check out this outline. The outer perimeter will be close to this area. You can see an outline of concrete that looks different than the rest, where I guess the other outside beams will go.

Because that space is completely open.

Even though it's not a reliable source, it still is a good sign

In late June 2012, David Zalesne president of Owen Steel confirmed that construction of the tower will continue and that Owen Steel has been selected to provide the structural steel for the building.[15][16] This has no yet been confirmed by Silverstein Properties or the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Wikipedia.

Woohoo! Can't believe this is going all the way. Wonder how tall it'll be at the end of the year.. or even end of the summer for that matter?

At least we got a name for the info. If the news gets into the media Zalesne might officially either confirm or deny the info. Then we'll know for sure

The core hasn't risen in quite some time.

Either permanently stopped or waiting while steel is worked on?

There are still workers walking around on the formwork, and from the webcam http://archives.earthcam.com/archive...gzmpr288_4.jpg you can see that the western part still has to be poured to reach the same level as the eastern side. We will see after this pour if the formwork will rise another time or not..

From what I can see on Earthcam there's even more steel up.. this is awesome. Right now it's still only on the Western side, I hope they start on the East side soon..
