They are still being designed and, obviously, are approved. People are giving the designer of WTC Tower Two a hard time because it being built on that WTC Staircase.

The heights are not know, but I'm sure that at least one will be over 1,000 feet tall.

Does anyone have a close-up of the base of Freedom Tower? I'm wondering if they're trying to reproduce the WTC's base. Perhaps in respect to what was before.

It's great. after so many years they have began to build the Freedomtower. I had compared the Photo of May 1st with May 13th and there are many differences you can see.

What's the deal with the Northwest remains of the parking structure? Are they ever going to get rid of it? There's still one level left over and they have dug out all around it. (???)

I think they keep it there because it helps them to build and/or electric lines are still around it.

So are they going to bild the freedom tower atop of the garage that is left, or are they going to remove it. How far along are they with the excavation process, how long will it be before they pour the foundation? I it true they will have to dig the site 80 feet deep?

What was left of the old basement levels. Those floors were cleared out months ago, i think.

Their heights are not officially known. Tower 2 seems to be the tallest of the bunch and Mr Prick Silverstein has publicly stated on several occasions that it will only be 950 feet tall. I pray that he can be convinced to build otherwise. It really should be at least 1100-1200 feet in my eyes
