People need to understand that any sort of twin towers will NOT BE BUILT. After all the delays and design changes, the Freedom Tower is under construction. Why can't anyone be satisfied?
They're touching it right now. Why not get some twins on those footprints and get back to business. With the way the new complex is going with the original footprints open it would make great business sense. This is some valuable land we're talking about here. Too valuable to become two square tree lined ponds.

Some 2001ft twin tower replicas or taller would fit in perfectly.

yep. and it would have been even more symbolic. 1776 for our independence and 2001 for the date of the attack.

I don't think this is the right orientation or scale but this would look beautiful if we got some taller twin replicas in the complex.

Looks like they have poured the concrete on the floor on the furthest section of the base from the camera. You can see the difference in color on the webcam and what seems to be some kind of formwork for that side of the site.

It is hard to determine if they really did pour the base but the indications given by the picture seem to sow that it was. I also believe that the route 9a to the south is critical to the construction of the tower as its connected to it. Maybe they were waiting for it progess before starting the real work on the tower.

You can also see that they've installed alot more rebar for the core just to the south of the cranes.

For the first time, I was about to complain about no progres on the tower itself, but now I see the core is coming to shape. It won't be that long before it's at grade.

Why are they wasting so much valuable space for such a large memorial and park?, a small memorial is ok, but one that takes up half the space, what a waste.
The "Liberty" park is highly unnecessary, the name could also be a bit more original.

They are building route 9a that connects from the new path station to the winter garden. That is what is behind the columns. Thanks for the pic Carlos . Always appreciated.
