It will take time before they plant some more trees right? Won´t they look different when all in place? Like some bigger than others?

Yes it is the bottom parts of them. You can see the top halves lying down (wrapped in white) behind the tower crane.

They're all coming from the same tree farm in NJ. There won't be any noticeable difference in shape and size.

Original Twin Towers Steel Tridents Return to WTC Site

"Two big columns of steel salvaged from the south tower of the original World Trade Center have found their way back home and are now installed within the framework for the pavilion of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. In the dark of night on September 1st, workers trucked in the massive steel tridents, each weighing 52 tons and rising 70 feet when reassembled, and crews then craned them into place. These two tridents will greet visitors as they enter the glass and steel structure designed by Snøhetta that will serve as the gateway to the underground museum. Installation of the pavilion's steel frame is now in full gear, rising tall between the two memorial pools.
These reminders of the previous WTC aren't yet whole. >>

The singular lower portions of the tridents now reach up to just above the plaza level. Soon the upper segments, with the iconic triple prongs that created the ribbon of narrow columns wrapping around the Twin Towers, will be attached. Those pieces of steel are on site and awaiting installation, wrapped in white plastic and stored on the memorial plaza just to the east of the grove of White Swamp Oaks that were planted in the plaza a few days ago. There's no official word when the tridents will be fully visible."

Ok, this is no highrise so maybe it doesn't matter.
Nevertheless i think it's worth to mention that the wtc-memorial/museum/pavilion complex is t/o now.

It's the first wtc-building that is t/o since 7wtc.

@OldWorldResident: do you really think it's already t/o? looks higher on the renderings for me, but maybe you're right.

some pics with more details showing the pump rooms etc. can be found here http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...5-Zer0-SS.html

Looks to me, that the Deutsche Bank building is 5 to 6 stories. In two months, this eyesore of NY is officially dismantled.

You can see here that the pavilion steel is slightly taller than the trident. Comparing this to the renderings I say it's t/o. But only the dude with zen can say for sure.

Btw. the reason why it doesn't look very tall is that everything on this construction site is so huge.

The best possible project! The finest architecture, powerful and touching. An adequate tribute to the victims of one of the bigger examples of human stupidity so far.
