^That has to be one of the most amazing shots ever; it's as if something divine is at work.

I think It's a beautiful building... if I don't make mistakes the spire's lighting will change everyday...

That picture only shows the effect the red sky on Freedom Tower's spire; it is not her lighting; yet, we know that the spire will be lit and can change color, casting beams of light into the sky. Unlike the Empire State Building's lighting, which can only be changed once per day, 1WTC's lights can change many times during the night.

As Shania Twain would say about that rendering, "That don't impress me much."

Pfft.

Concrete is expected to be in place for the tower's foundation before the end of this year. The foundation blasting is "nearly complete," according to Janno Lieber, the WTC development director for Silverstein Properties.

This is a beautiful building, especially considering what this will represent to people across the country. I'm not sure how I feel about the spire though, just wish it was more..well a spire then a needle.

The spire is still being worked on by a sculptor; it will be made bigger so that it can be seen from far away. They say it will look something like the top of the Empire State/Chrysler buildings.

Two new animnations (TIMELAPSE OF FREEDOM TOWER BASE and FREEDOM TOWER BASE ANIMATION) were released in the video/movie section. They totally suck because the picture is too small and you can't see much. If anyone finds the larger version, post it here.

http://www.earthcam.net/users/interf...2&clientid=158 this is the HD webcam, zoom into the freedom tower site and look right next to the north tower footprint, what is that "trench" (i don't know what it is, but it looks like a trench) that they are digging, and there they also digging another about 10 feet to the right of that one. Is this for foundation work?

That's from the new Adam Sandler movie, "Click;" at a certain point, the main character, who plays an architect, gets transported about twenty years into the future, and there were Twin Freedom Towers.

yes blackhawk, that is a trench and that trench is the foundation for the building, so I guess you can say that construction has started.
