It's just a name, can we leave it alone and continue to talk about the building rising?

You have to, or you are OT and your comments will be cancelled.
Maybe though you have never herd of the word skyscraper ( what is the tallest building in croatia? )

Back on topic: lets stop all the bul***hit about the name. They should have called it the FYWT (" F**k you world" ...tower).
God I would have loved it.... (btw: don't think this is exactly on topic, but I had to say it ).

Grow tower grow and let us dream!!!!

Freedom of speech applies to government power, not disputes between two people.

How come the moderator is not making any comments? I thought that this was a discussion about the construction of the World Trade Centre replacement buildings. I guess I was wrong.
Things are looking really good for a major pour again around the cores. I see that more columns of steel have been placed against the slurry wall to the west.

Please stop all the bickering and grow up people.

Those aren't steel columns in the north-west corner. It's hard to see exactly what they are but they have been there for several weeks.

It looks like the insulation is about to be applied to the north core. The big pour next week?

Some more steel columns came the other day and were installed to form the parimeter of the base.

The steel beams are at the south west corner. If you strain enough you will see 2 of them. As for the pour it will probably be within the next two weeks.

3. All 10,000,000 sq. ft. of office space has to be put back there.

4. The chance of a 09-11-style attack like that happening again are probably a million to one odds.

It is not being built in the same spot, just the same area. Aren't the original tower footprints going to be reflecting pools or something similar to that?

The chance of an airplane crashing into a tower as a terror attack are extremely unlikely probably on the order of a billion to one.

It is really good to start seeing progress on the core!!

He wasn't talking about the new columns at the south-west corner. He was talking about what appears to be new columns up against the slurry wall in the north-west corner, above the subway roof. They appear to have short cross-beams on them. Whatever it is, it has been there since Oct 23rd. Look at the slurry wall behind the top of the south crane as it is seen from the earthcam hd camera.

I am not surprised that even that name isn't original, then again, it's not like there was anything original about this building to begin with.

^ Really? Then what about its unique shape, height, amazing spire, great facade(s), and high status in the green community?


If some people really think it has nothing to do with freedom because America 'doesn't have any,' then they're just kidding them[uneducated]selves. The new WTC's about spitting on the BS ideals that destroyed the old towers.

Back many pages - a month or so - is a great map, Port Authority also seems to be a treasure trove of info.

Oh. And what about the fact that it will once again be New York's tallest and finest? As a matter of fact, the Eastern Seaboarb's tallest? Again.

one of the most beautiful office towers in the land!!
