1 WTC spire arrives in New York

Dec.December 11, 2012 03:30 PM

The goods for One World Trade Center’s coronation — so to speak — today made their way to the city, the AP reported. A barge departed from Port Newark in New Jersey today towing along nine pieces of the steel spire, which will top the 1,776-foot-high property.

Each piece weighs 70 tons. Workers at the site were busy today pouring the concrete that will hold the 408-foot spire.

As previously reported, the steel shipments were the subject of a lawsuit, which was resolved two months ago. The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey alleged that ADF Steel Corp., the Canadian steel supplier that provided the material for the antenna, kept the shipment “hostage” over a $6 million dispute for steel needed for the Lower Manhattan transportation hub.

By this spring, the spire is slated to top building. [AP via Crain’s] — Zachary Kussin
