    Yeah, WTC 3 and the Twin Towers WERE very close, as well as WTC 6.

    Finally, 3WTC gets its tower cranes. It's about time we see some action here!

    So does anyone know if they still plan to build just the stumps for these, or did these to remaining buildings (T2, T3) get the green light to be built up to their planned full heights?

    Hey, great shots on the previous page 325 !

    Good news bad news on the tower cranes. The bad news is they are weeks away. The towers for the cranes are old school, the base is set into the slab of the building. It'll be a week or so before they pour the base and it takes 72 + hours for the concrete to reach 75% strength. (Remember how long we could see a base for a crane at T2 before the cranes were erected. Looks like Cornelle is the steel contractor for T3 as well. That means about 65% of the steel for the WTC rebuilding is or will be fabricated in New Jersey.)

    The good news ?!? The cranes are coming !!!! They could be setting up forms and erecting steel by my birthday, April 21st.

    (That's what drew me to this thread !)

    Daquan, I remain optimistic about T2 and T3. It is my opinion that they will reach full hight, without interruption.

    You know, with T2's steel columns in place I honestly don't think they intend on stopping.

    Intent is one thing, the market has a way of forcing people to postpone or abandon a lot of business plans. Larry Silverstein hasn't risen to the top of the real estate market in New York by being imprudent. No doubt the rental agreements on the cranes have an early opt-out and bring-back clause and procurement contracts are tranched so that SP won't be sitting on 10,000 tons of steel it can't use right away.

    Expect to complete, but plan an exit anyway.

    The crane rental, steel fabrication and erection are all by one company, Cornelle. That probably simplifies things a bit. If worse comes to worse, they will probably take the cranes down and just leave the towers in place. Not like they are going to need the space inside the core for elevators or something !

    (I had to add tranched to the spell checker )

    Well, hopefully, ALL of the towers will be u/c at the same time.
