Wave staffers visited the construction site of One World Trade Center last Friday for a tour of the progress on the building which is going up one floor per week, according to a spokesperson for the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey.

The site boasts a staff of 2,000 workers per day and is expected to be completed by 2013. The first glass panels of the 104-story building were recently installed on the 20th floor. The 12,000 glass panels will take two years to be completely installed. The building itself is currently built up to the 39th floor.
