I hope so. So far it seems like the second-slowest excavation ever. I imagine rock is the reason progress has been slow. Five months to get to this point.

Does anyone know how long the excavation for the first tower took?

There was a pretty substantial fire there. How much damage was done I’m not sure about nor how far the fire set the construction back. There’s a video on it on YouTube.

A PANYNJ cop was telling me about it this morning. He made it seem like it wasn’t all that big.

Edit: Talked to a tenant in Journal Squared who said the fire was caused by an exploded propane tank. It didn't cause any significant damage, but the smell of burning propane got into the building HVAC and stunk up the place.
