Probably intentional.

I wish Larry or the Port Authority would confirm or update us on our suspicions on tower 3.

3WTC will hopefully hold a briefing to show progress and just where its future lies.

The structure in the picture above is very different to the render at the top of the page.

Because those are interior floors, and the exterior for that side hasn't started yet.

Does Anybody else find it wierd that they waited until it was 7 stories before the steel was installed? Or how rebar and concrete hasn't rose since?

I hope i'm wrong but i think it's not going ahead yet.

I disagree. That is the exterior edge. It is right next to the (new) road, so it cannot go further. The render has six columns that go up very high to form a huge open lobby. The actual structure in the picture only looks low with 45 degree beams to shape the 'entrance'? It is good that it adds much more floor space, but bad that the primary view of 1WTC from such a huge glass lobby will be reduced.

I could be wrong, but from earthcam it looks like those beams line up (approximately) with the same side of 4WTC, which they should. If they do add the long beams in front of this, then the render only appears to show a large gap.

Exterior columns will go into those circles.
