    I doubt it. We need redundancy.

    Well all of the antennas and communications masts that are currently on the ESB were originally placed on the roof and antenna of the original 1 World trade Center. During that TV outage back in 2001 after 9/11, they were relocated to the Empire State Building. Once they complete 1WTC they should be relocated once again to its communications ring.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, wasn't all that actually relocated to the top of the conde nast building in Times Sq?

    Not exactly. The Empire State Building couldn't take all of the radio stations (otherwise the mast would look like a pin cushion), so yes, they did move some of the stations to the new mast atop the Conde Nast building, which as the article says, was built for a future mast in mind. They say the mast at 1WTC is prime communications space, however, and they would like to relocate there once the tower is complete, which is probably why in some renderings, the communications ring appears to be bare.

    Worker Injured in Fall From Ladder At World Trade Center Site

    By Andrea Swalec, Aidan Gardiner


    A construction worker may have broken his leg when he fell from a ladder at 4 World Trade Center on Tuesday November 13, 2012.

    FINANCIAL DISTRICT — A construction worker may have broken his leg when he fell 10 feet from a ladder at 4 World Trade Center, an FDNY spokesman said.

    Just after 9 a.m., emergency medical crews responded to Liberty St. and Trinity Pl., at the southeast side of the center, fire officials said.

    Witnesses said the man was awake and talking.

    The worker was transported to New York Downtown Hospital, officials said.

    This is the latest in a slew of construction accidents over the past year that have plagued the World Trade Center site, including another injured worker, a fire and a crane which swung free and shattered some windows.

    I'm not against workers falling from ladders or things of that nature, but I have lost count on how many workers have fallen at the WTC. Do they need to start wearing harnesses when transiting up and down?

    On a clearer note, the base of this tower seems to have fallen off the media radar. The installation of glass seems to have progressed along a lot since the last time it was mentioned.

    There's a push now on some sites to eliminate the use of ladders entirely. CM's are promoting the use of mobile steps or podiums like those below. Unions will be in favor of them as they add time and labor.

    That would be a hell of a lot safer!!

    Also, OSHA should mandate the use of safety straps quite similar to the ones that the sateel workers have to use when erecting the steel framework for the towers.

    Worker Hurt by Dislodged Pipe at 4 World Trade Center

    By Joe Parziale


    A worker at 4 World Trade Center was injured after a pipe came loose and struck him in the face on Nov. 28, 2012.

    FINANCIAL DISTRICT — A construction worker at 4 World Trade Center was hurt after a metal pipe pumping concrete became dislodged and struck him in the face, officials said.

    The worker, an employee of Corporate Electric, suffered minor injuries to his face after the overhead pipe on the tower's fifth floor came loose about 1:10 p.m., according to the FDNY and Silverstein Properties, which owns 4 World Trade Center.

    The injured worker was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in stable condition, an FDNY spokesman said.

    Another worker on the site said the pipe was pressurized and pouring concrete when it gave way.

    "His face was covered in concrete powder," the worker said. "But he was moving around and talking, so I think it looked worse than it actually was."

    As quiet as 1000 foot tall towers come.
