    4WTC finally appears to be growing. How quickly is each floor going up now? The speed should increase once the floor plate decreases in size at floor 46 (duh).

    It's going up about as fast as weather will allow at this point. They don't appear to be holding back to pour the concrete columns at all. I'd say a floor every week and a half at this point.

    It would appear that the concrete contractor knows wtf he is doing. Unlike a certain contractor at a nearby tower.

    If you looks closely, they've actually bolted steel braces between the columns that haven't received the concrete yet and remove them after the pour. Perhaps this extra support means the steel can rise independently from the concrete? At the very least it's a clever idea, then again Leslie Robertson has always been a bright engineer.

    Thanks for that explanation, STR. It clarifies something that had me a bit confused: They've also placed what appear to be temporary vertical supports in the open SE corners overlooking Zuccotti Park.

    I thought the diagonal braces were temporary.

    They are doing something similar with the core steel too I bet.

    On T1 they just made the columns of the core steel thicker so the steel could be as much as ten floors ahead of the core rather than the planed six floors.

    STR, you know what they say about the great engineers, they make the impossible, can't be build design the architect dreamed up happen. I too think Leslie Robertson is one of the greats.

    Trade Center Developer Exercises Option to Lease 14 Floors to the City


    Published: February 25, 2011

    The developer Larry A. Silverstein is taking up New York City on its offer to lease one-third of an office tower being built at the World Trade Center site.

    Mr. Silverstein told the city last month that he was exercising his option to have the city government take on 14 floors of office space in the building, to be known as 4 World Trade Center, at a yearly rate of $56.50 a square foot, said a spokesman, Bud Perrone, on Friday. Although the developer is asking about 10 percent more for space at the nearby 7 World Trade Center, the decision guarantees him tenants for two-thirds of this building, because the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has already agreed to move in as well.

    “The city’s commitment to take space back in 2006 was one of the key steps that enabled development to move forward,” said Andrew Brent, a spokesman for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. The deal was part of an effort to spur stalled construction at the site.

    Mr. Perrone said, “With the rebuilding now in full gear, the plan has clearly worked.”

    The tower is expected to be completed in late 2013, but the city does not expect to move in until 2014. While the initial lease will be for about 15 years, it may be extended by 20 more.

    Mr. Silverstein was required to give at least 32 months’ warning that he wanted the city to occupy the space. His decision to exercise the option was reported on Friday afternoon on The New York Post’s Web site.

    Construction at the site has been repeatedly bogged down by disagreements and a difficult real estate climate. While plans initially called for Mr. Silverstein to build three office towers at the site, he is now building just this tower to completion. A second tower can move ahead only after he has secured some tenants, and a third tower has been indefinitely postponed. Mr. Silverstein had hoped to lure private corporations at higher rents to 4 World Trade Center.

    Another building, the 1,776-foot One World Trade Center — formerly called the Freedom Tower — is set to be completed in 2013.

    That ^ is proper reporting.

    Many other articles have termed this a something Silverstein is FORCING the City to do, when in fact it's part of an agreement between the parties ...
