on page 1772 somebody posted a giant pic of the
floor plan of the new lobby.
I did not see the escalators on that giant pic.....

The escalators were always in the floor plans. They take you down to the B2 lobby level, which provides you access to One World Observatory, retail, and PATH access.

A few of one WTC from my visit this week. I noticed little half round balconies at the top when I zoomed in, not sure what they are for. Can anyone enlighten me?

Escalators for the West and B2 lobbies. This is where visitors to One World Observatory will enter.

I suspect (hope) that once construction is complete they'll park completely within the parapet and not stick out like that. I know it's minor but it ruins the sleek aesthetic of the building.

Also, I noticed they have begun to clean the glass. Does this building employ an automated window washing robot like the original towers did or will humans actually manage to clean all those acres of glass by hand?

Not entirely sure. I know that the telescopic arms of the BMUs have platforms that humans stand in to control it. Don't know how the actual washing process is quite yet.
