Stop spreading false information, no major construction will start for 2WTC in the next time.

It is NOT U/C. This tower will be considered U/C when they start building it to its full height, after enough space has been leased for this tower. And this won't happen this year for sure, and it's quite likely that this won't happen next year either.

While I highly doubt that WTC2 is actually under construction at this time it certainly is possible that it could start rising before WTC3. If a major client wanted to lease space in WTC2 and not 3 for some reason (I can think of several) but I'm sure Larry will be more than glad to build this building prior to WTC 3! Plans are always subject to change as we seen so many other times with this project.

Probably work on the retail podium if anything. You sure the materials aren't for the transportation hub?

I completely agree with you. It is possible, so there's no reason to automatically dismiss the rumors of construction continuation. On the other hand, we need solid proof before saying this is u/c again, proof that can only be gained through watching this carefully for a longer time. The steel being for the PATH hub is certainly a very feasible possibility. To put the long story short, we'll definitely need to wait for solid proof that this baby is gonna rise before celebrating

That steel could be for anything. Perhaps a roof or deckover to protect the exposed mechanical equipment. It may be construction. But not in the sense we'd like to see.

Bare minimum. Lowermanhattan.info reports they'll be finishing the street level structure and utility tie-in work through fall '13.

Compared to 3WTC, which is getting cladding at the moment, this one is really not U/C. Not enough in my mind to justify it being in the U/C section.

Besides everything else that's been said, if construction was truly restarting one of the 1st things they would do would be to install tower cranes. Since that's not happening, we can safely assume the ongoing work is just to finish/protect what's already in place.
