We're going to see more FT steel beams go up soon! I can't wait for 2008! By a little after then, it will be going up almost as fast as GS. By 9/11, the world would will see this amazing girl.

By then, Goldman Sachs will already be topped out and nearing completion.

I am so excited by the progogress. So, I am assuming that the parking structure of the former WTC6 will not be torn down before Freedom Tower rises? Is it part of the plan?

Also, anyone know where I can fing a super hi-res of this pic?

No, no, and no.

Freedom Tower's core is looking very, how you say, organized/well-made from the top.

In your dreams. They have dozens of people assigned to the base alone.

In my dreams actually I just sayd I hoped for it to be nice, but whatever..

They can have all the people they want, but the renderings just show a terrible base. But maybe they have changed it (I doubt it), in that case, I would be really happy. Have to wait till it is finished (by then probably I wont care anymore...)

All the mechanical stuff is located in the first 3 floors of 7WTC, which is unusual for a skyscraper. That's why people didn't like the way it looked.

Dude, I don't hate the base of FT, I just think it should be even better since it is such a special place. It has to be the top, because that is the only thing New York deserves. I'm not criticising it for some stupid reason (political, thought or what ever), but I want it to be the best base ever. I know I ask too much, but that is what I feel...

the base is bland, barren, and un-inviting, look up and you see beauty, but below you can hardly say there's anything worth looking at.

Get rid of the proposed fish bone train terminal, it looks like a joke.

^Obviously smoking something real good.

If all of the bases were very showy, it wouldn't look good anyway. The only base that really matters is 3WTC's base (because it's the center point of the WTC; everyone sees it no matter what), and it's by far "the best." We still don't even know that 1WTC's base is truly capable of yet, and that goes for all the bases too. It might be able to do stuff like change colors and we know it's made of thousands of pieces of highly reflective glass.
