In other words, these beams will be encased in concrete? That would make sense.

The first couple of south facing walls of 4WTC are built like that also.

Yeah, that's a shame, but we knew that it would happen.

9/11 will never be over until these buildings are finished.

Salt in the wounds.

Question: Won't there still be work on this building? It looks like they have a lot of half finished things and exposed steel. So won't they keep working to get it into a more appropriate condition for being idle?

I would think so but....

Obviously. The site isn't safe the way it is right now. They'll probably be working on the area for the rest of the year tying up loose ends and such.

Construction will continue through to the end of the year.

They'll be back.

Can't say for sure when. Might be a couple years, might be 5 years, or even 10. But they will be back and this project will be completed.

On the bright side, when this starts rising the WTC 1 observation area should be open so there should be lots of great pictures documenting its rise. We'll never have to worry about the building going above where the web cams reach - we'll always have a birds eye view :-)

It should be finished out as a retail stump with the core fully enclosed. Unless Silverstein can bag some really big game on the leasing front, this one will be a "taxpayer" for years to come.

It will be soon...

The tower was expected to be put "on hold" long time ago because it doesn't have any tenants yet. They will restart construction when Silverstein get some leases sign in for this tower, same goes for Tower 3.
