For a refresher...Yeah there's going to be some real interesting framing starting here real soon - because of the span over the roadways below, and because iirc there is going to be a very large ballroom volume with a huge multi-floor truss bridge over it...
This is shown as going right up against WTC ave. In the above pictures it shows that the ground ends before the bridge and theres a road, how are they going to get it right against the bridge? Theres literally an entire skyscraper being built on top of a road somehow... Anyways new renders:
Definitely cantilevered. Looks like the ballroom, the silver pop-out and the northern edge of the eastern tower are cantilevered over track 61.The steel beams beneath the ballroom are huge. Appears to be cantilevered over Track 61
Those are some of the BIGGEST Steel Beams recently seen in Boston especially those "Double Wides"Definitely cantilevered. Looks like the ballroom, the silver pop-out and the northern edge of the eastern tower are cantilevered over track 61.
I was just about to pose the same question here, though I understand it's not really exactly half. Guesses would be appreciated. Either way, the construction details here are certainly more interesting than I would've originally imagined.Anyone know why half this building is steel frame and the other half is CIP concrete?
