Keep in mind the project has several adjacent towers as well being built at the same time. So overall I'd say their progressing very well.

the spire structure starts at 475m level, thus spire structure totals 120m high.

Construction is going fast as hell, it looks like it can be topped out early next year.

You can say that again!

The constuction speed of the Freedom Tower (WTC 1)
makes this project seem like something from Dubai !!

It's a lie!! It's going fast because there have been terrorist attacks in the US and it has to be one of the strongest towers. They have done a lot of work around the tower and underground, so it's going fast!!!

Ehhh, it's on hold! That's not fast at all.
Plus, international standards for terrorist attacks are pretty similar so that won't make too much of a difference.
