Oh boy just one left! I wouldn’t be surprised it it sat like that for another few weeks :joy:… in all seriousness though thank god today it will be all zipped up! Finally! Now on to replacing the few remaining broken windows and finishing the Church Street side walk…

So why do the occupied floors of 3wtc have shades but 4wtc, which has 100% occupancy, doesn’t have window shades? Am I missing something here? Does 4wtc have shades but they look different or something?


#1744

look at the bottom section of 4WTC. There are shades, the windows are just less transparent.
If you’re looking at the top part of 4, it is unoccupied, because Spotify never moved in…


#1745

Ok yea i think i can kind of see what you mean. I’ll have to take a closer look the next time I’m down there. Why did Spotify not move into the upper floors? A quick google search is only bringing up articles for when they signed on the space but nothing on backing out


#1746

I think they are moving in by the end of the year. I have seen new lights on their floors in a few recent photos, so they may have started building out their floors.


#1747

It’s dumb on their part because they’ve been paying for the space all this year


#1748

I don’t think so. They have a set date when they start the lease.

I found this picture of the new lights I was talking about.

These lights are on some of Spotify’s floors so I assume they are just starting to build out their space.

Fantastic photos! Spotify is in fact in the process of building our their space. About 1,000 employees will be moving in by years end.


#1751

Does anyone have photos of the “zipper?” I’m curious what is happening with it.


#1752

I’m making a gif of the zipper from the crane going down to the glass going back up


#1753

Closing up, literally one window left

Work is finally progressing on the bollard installation on the church street sidewalk. The final section to remain fenced in. Fingers crossed they finish this and open it up by years end.


#1756

Now I just need that Earthcam time lapse.


#1757

Gifs will be coming, @WTC_Fan_1998 is making them


#1758

Snapped a quick pic inside the fence:
