The podium for 3WTC is supposed to go to the seventh floor. So I hope we'll see work continue for several more months. Unless they've burned through their cash already.

In general yes, though 3WTC will most probably be built before 2WTC so the waiting will be far shorter in that case

Gah! This building will look tops when complete, especially from Carlos penthouse, going to have to wait for an unknown period of time.

See one advantage from this result. 1WTC will have an uninterrupted view of Brooklyn for a while. People from Brooklyn will be able to enjoy it for a while.

That is very true. And, when construction for 2wtc resumes, we'll have a birds-eye view of the construction. So there is a silver lining after all.

That's no bright side. Only a few Brooklynites get that few.

That is true. But within a few months, this tower will be on hold.

WTC2 and WTC3 can't go on hold.

9/11 will never be over for me until every last building is finished and every last pile of dirt is removed and the last worker leaves the site.

It drives me crazy to see the site the way it is. It just reinforces the images of that day in my mind.

Glad to get that off my [email protected]!!#*!!!

As I read many comments along this thread, towers will rise once they get the tenants to occupy them... so I guess it's just a matter of time.

This project is not on hold... YET!

So stop saying it is! The truth is no one here knows for sure what is going on right now. Will the tower be put on hold? Most likely! It was planned that way from the start but until Silverstein Properties or the Port Authority officially says the tower is on hold, stop saying it is.

I’m fine with the tower going on hold (as was planned from the start). The worst thing that could happen is to flood downtown with too much office space too quickly!

BTW... both cranes would have to be removed even if the tower was going up uninterrupted as they are anchored and not climbing cranes.
