    I find it interesting that the two cranes still remain.

    Perhaps a source of some optimism?

    Ah, it looks like the pad being laid down is to bring something in and remove the lower crane. I'm not sure it's compatible with the building. I should think a crane for that part of the base would need to be elsewhere. In any event, they are raising the forms again, which will put the core above the 2 mechanical floors that I suspect they will stop the building with. The next 5 floors of base are office space (trading floors), and I doubt they will be built without a tenant.

    Looks like the same steel they've been building into the core for months. It has a bunch of horizontal connectors, so it's not a vertical, which will go in first. I hate to be a naysayer, but I find it unlikely that this represents structural/exterior steel.

    Especially when there are no perimeter columns set up, as of yet.

    Time Warner’s giga-op

    April 30, 2012 | 10:56 am by Erik Ipsen



    Opportunity knocked thunderously on the doors of the city’s biggest developers on Friday afternoon. Time Warner Inc. sent out a request of proposals to outfits ranging from home-grown talents including Extell, Sherwood, and Silverstein to national players Brookfield and Boston Properties, according to The Wall Street Journal. The media giant wants to re-think its 4 million square feet of New York City office space. Ultimately, the company could decide to stay put at its various locations, including its Columbus Circle headquarters, or it could consolidate the whole lot somewhere near the Hudson Rail Yards, west of Penn Station, or at the World Trade Center. A decision is expected by the end of the year, but whatever Time Warner decides to do, one clear winner has already emerged. He is Mitchell Steir, CEO of Studley, the broker who will be helping the company weigh its options. He suddenly becomes the most popular man in town.
    One of the contestants in that game got a well-timed boost on Monday morning with the papers trumpeting the news on their front pages that this will be the day that New York City gets a new holder for the title of tallest building. When they bolt a new column in place up on the 100th floor of 1 World Trade Center, its top end will loom 1,271 feet above ground level, according to The New York Times. The owners of the erstwhile No. 1 tower, the Empire State Building, graciously sent their congratulations. “We’ve watched you grow, and now we salute you,” was the message sent from up on West 34th Street and Fifth Avenue. That building is now 21 feet shorter than 1 WTC, and it’ll be 226 feet shorter by next year, when the antenna atop the building is finished. With Condé Nast slated to be the anchor tenant in that spire and with downtown clearly on the rebound—and destined to garner a lot of favorable publicity in coming months—the prospects for that old fox Larry Silverstein landing Time Warner are getting better by the day. He has one tower down at the Trade Center site that he was prepared to cap at a mere seven stories that he’d love to hang Time Warner’s name on—in big red lights if the company would like. And he could likely deliver the goods faster and cheaper than his rivals.

    Wanted to post a poll on what TW's choice might be, could not figure out how to do it.
