I’m guessing this for the elevator down to the 1 train…


#247

Nice to see the crane finally in use again…
Steel hasn’t been going on for a while, just some concrete pouring


#248

Indeed! They have been working on a lot of the underground work lately. Probably trying to take care of all the VSC work before the main PAC structure starts up. Speaking of steel…more has just arrived! Crane coming back in action!


#249

Just wondering will there be an entrance to the 1 Train from street level? Thanks :slight_smile:


#250

Sure will! There are a total of 4 entrances from Street level at the WTC if I’m not mistaken. 2 are in front of 4 WTC on the memorial side and the other two will be somewhere in this area that I circled.


#251

The “new” station is supposed to be open by 9/11 according to the guys working on it.


#252

Is construction of the station ahead of schedule? CurbedNY reported in the spring that Cortlandt Street station would open in October. Very nice if they can open earlier of course.


#253

Construction ahead of schedule? At the World Trade Center??


#254

Crane back in full swing with lots of new steel placed today.

#255

Excellent progress with steel the last two days. After virtually none being placed the last month and a half they came back with a bang. You can kind of start to see the outline of the where the building will be. can’t wait for the structure to take shape above ground in the new year…


#256

I thought the PAC was still looking for financing?


#257

The last report I read stated they had 82% of the building financed. I’m assuming they have some plan in motion to take care of the rest before above ground construction is set to start in the new year.


#258

Good to know, thanks


#259

Steel has been going up like wildfire lately. The pace of this project is so bipolar. Right now they are moving it which is great. Hope they keep the momentum…

Walked by this on Tuesday and saw 4 or 5 cement trucks lined up to go into the site. Looks like Tom’s picture actually has a few of them there. Looked to be a decent sized cement pour


#262

Murals/painting are being applied onto the WTC2 A/C.

#263

Getting ready to pour the third entrance staircase going down to the 1 train platform…there will be one more across from this. The other two staircases are completed and located directly across from 4 WTC on the memorial side.


#264

Oh yeah… all those closed off staircases to nowhere. I don’t know why I didn’t put the 2 together. I wonder what the ones are that are located towards the south side of the memorial.


#265

Yep! Getting everything ready for the October opening of the 1 train WTC stop. Though I’m not sure how these will be accessible while construction of the PAC continues beyond that. This elevator (covered in the white tarp) was a main objective point in getting installed by the October opening so I guess we shall see.

The stairs facing Liberty Park? Those along with the other two by 1 WTC are emergency exits for the museum.
