Kinda. No guaranteed tenants means no guaranteed cover of expenditure.

If one of them is going ahead it will be 3WTC.

No, 2WTC is on indefinite hold.....indeed right now ops are underway to cap the site and make it safe. But it will (hopefully) resume at some point in the not-too-distant future.

I hope there will be at least some temporary occupants? Or will it be completely sealed off?

Only part above ground is that what is necessary for Transit Hall access. Not sure if below grade portion will be open or temporarily sealed off.

Access to Tower 2 Lobby through the Transit Hall will be temporaly closed... unless Silverstein pays for the fabrication and installation of two Thyssenkrupp escalators and a temporary protective shell to cover them against rain.

Seeing how the decision of WTC3 stopping building, taking down the cranes, capping it off and getting it ready for hibernation... then suddenly getting the full go ahead and returning the cranes and everything.. we could see the WTC2 all of a sudden, as well, getting the full go ahead out of nowhere

They could resume quickly when a tenant is found. We wouldn't know it before it is announced.

So far we don't even know whether there is a tenant for 3WTC. It might be just that Larry has found enough money to build it even without a tenant

I dunno, only time will tell, but the apparent go for tower 3 surely made me more optimistic about the fate of tower 2

looks like all that prep work is for pouring and sealing the top of that elevation.

dens glass (yellow) for wall systems and the styrofoam (blue) for pouring that floor

Exactly. It would seem they are putting a lot of work into capping off this structure, and if they were optimistic it would turn around in the immediate future...it would seem they would delay some of that work.

So, I am also hopeful that soon 2WTC will start rising...but I think we are going to have to wait at least a couple years.
