To the left of the dish, right? Damn these cams! Always going down at the worst times!


#343

Yup.
Guess I’ll keep an eye out on insta


#344

Cams are back up and look what I see! This has to be the new BMU or for it!

They’ve been moving them around a lot today. I guess they must be the new system, and the booms are telescopic or something— they just seem so thin


#346

Hmm. Appears so! The ones originally up there were telescopic as well but they were attached to a larger system overall. This may be it or they may have more to do. It is weird how thin they are though. Regardless this is much needed and very much welcome! Time to finish this up, put them into use and get those windows back in on floor 90.


#347

Well look at what we have here…a better view of the most likely new BMU!

#348

Gorgeous! The details are so crisp, even the cables hanging…
it’s definitely the rig… can’t wait to see this thing in action


#349

Same here! This is way overdue! Hopefully by next spring we have a completely clean 1 WTC!


#350

I can’t wait. It’s the thing that stands out so much when looking at pics of the building. Especially ones with tourists in them. Very embarrassing that they come all this way and have to look at a building (that is supposed to be the crown jewel of the site) with streaks running down its sides.


#351

So true!
In person it’s not even that noticeable but the Instagram photos are freaking gruesome


#352

Looks like they are testing the weight for the new rig…kinda reminds me of the Twins system a bit…

#353

This is absolutely fantastic… can’t wait to see these in full action


#354

Small antennas being installed on the rings…


#355




#356


Noticed this on one of my photos


#357

If this deal goes through that would put 1 WTC close to 90% leased. It currently stands about 76% leased.

#358

I hope they take the space, those construction lights in the middle of the tower have got to go.

I assume that the entrance next to the PAC would go to them if they sign the lease.


#359

I concur! The East Entrance will be accessible to all tenants from my understanding. There are escalators from the balcony level of the West Concourse that take you right up to the East entrance that all the tower employees use. At least that’s what I’ve been told.


#360

Oh, I heard somewhere that entrance was most likely to be used for another anchor tenant. Either way it will be nice to see that in use.


#361

Will this help push potential tenants towards 2WTC down the road? Would they consider multiple companies renting space to get 2 started or is getting the single anchor tenant the only way to get it off the ground?
