    That's the same way they built 7WTC, given its lack of street space.

    It's a DCM/Federated climbing rig similar to the ones on 1 and 4WTC. It only extends about 4-6 floors down inside the building, so they can finish up beneath it as they go up.

    Extell is putting up a 21-story (221 feet high) hotel across the street at 30 west 46th

    the lot is less than 80 feet wide
