Construction Begins Underneath The Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center, World Trade Center





Quote:
The photos come from Earthcam’s World Trade Center station, which has offered excellent updates on the gradual transformation of the site. Steel plating began arriving a few weeks ago, and construction has now begun, with the first columns rising for the Vehicle Security Center.

The diagram of the site shows the location of the VSC in relation to the Performing Arts Center, and makes obvious why the former must be finished before the latter can start to rise.

Joshua Prince-Ramus of REX is designing the project, which will be the crowning cultural centerpiece of the new World Trade Center complex. There will be three theaters within the project, each containing seating for 499, 250, and 99 people, respectively.

Completion is expected by 2020, and the actual Performing Arts Center should begin construction in another year or so.

Still nothing happening here.
Still a hole in the ground, 16 years after 9/11.

Nothing happening... except for the new steel that's been added (admittedly slowly) over the last couple months.

That's not totally fair, I mean it was a PATH station entrance until last year when they demo'd it, right?

If you're keeping score last month they finally finished the entry on the east side of 1 wtc. (Still incomplete after all these years). For the last few years there's been exposed steel and insulation where that portal should have been. Hopefully this means they've started to make the underground connections on the vsc.

As a side note on 1wtc (asking here since these forums get more traffic)- does anyone know what's going on with the new openings at the top of 1 wtc- on each of the cardinal elevations there's 2 removed windows near the top, not sure if these are for new mechanical vents or are temporary but they detract from the look of the building.

Well, as few seem to realise, the VSC is what is being built right now, not the PAC. The PAC will sit atop the VSC just as 7WTC sits atop a ConEd station, just as the original one had.

The permanent window-washing mechanisms are broken, so rather than allow dirt to accumulate on the windows and incur the wrath of Condé Nast, they knocked out two windows on each side from which they're hanging the window-washing platforms.

Work Appears To Stall for World Trade Center’s Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center
By: Nikolai Fedak 8:00 am on December 22, 2017

Back in August, YIMBY reported on apparent progress on the site of the Vehicle Security Center and future Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center, on the site of the old temporary PATH Station.
Unfortunately, while steel began to rise as summer turned to fall and reached street-level by November, December has seemingly brought a freeze to the pace of progress.

I believe that Conde Nast did sue Durst over window washing fees. The mechanisms broke in 2014 and wont be fixed until 2018. But hey what's one more failure after everything else Durst has done wrong?

You made a lot of weather puns. I'm willing to bet it's because of that.
