I'm curious to see this one rise. I'm new to this thread. I'm an active memember on the 1wtc thread and other transportation threads. Is there a camera i could see to watch this rise/

Still, those rods were very long. Do they go way down into the bedrock or will they be sticking fairly far up in the air.

600West218,

They do extend down into the bedrock below and is grouted to the rock. Only a small portion extends above the initial concrete pad that you see. A plate washer with nut is placed on the tendon against the concrete pad. The portion of the tendon that extends up has a plate washer sandwiched between two heavy bolts. Take a look at the series of black and white photos dated 5-22-12 that are on the Park Avenue site. In one picture ( picture number 10) , you see the concrete pad with two rows of tendons, with plate washers and nuts against the pad. A closeup of the plate washers is seen in picture number 11. In picture number 10, there are the devices for tightening up the plate washers against the pad, as well as tensioning the tendons. The upper ends of the complete installation of the tendons is seen in picture number 9. The three thickest vertical bars closest to you with the plate washers are the tendons. They are encapsulated in this picture with the additional reinforcing for the footing. This footing in the picture appears ready to receive concrete.

Watching the construction of the foundation has been a treat. Every day, there is progress to be observed. Today's activity shows the completion of the tendon installation on the east tower footing pads. Beginning preparations are being made on the west slab on grade adjacent to the three west tower footings for future pouring. Yesterday, this area was graded. Returning to the three east footing pads that had their tendons installed, the next step would be erecting the footing forms, installing footing rebar, then pouring concrete. The chute used for pouring the west footings is still in place along the 56St. fence for the future pour, perhaps by the same method using the excavator with turned-around bucket that was used to pour the west footings.

I finally got the chance to walk by and actually see this in person for the very first time the other day (I didn't get to peak through the fence though). One thing that struck me was that the vast majority of the site borders East 56th St, not Park Ave. Why is it addressed Park Ave?

i guess the sheer words "park avenue" in the name will yield 10s of millions of dollars at the counter...

Really? I don't know about you, but I don't like that road at all. I found it a b*tch to walk across. I literally had to power walk in order to make it across on time. It's too wide!

Yes, really. It's no coincidence that Ferrari of Manhattan is about a block away from this site on Park Ave.

Your personal opinion doesn't matter here. We're taking about Park Ave in NYC, One of the most sought after places to live in the world.
