People try to contribute to this thread with great photos but everyone else seems too busy arguing. Thank you to all those that helped enrich this thread.

Congradulations to all you stupid baby cries and whiners who successfully managed to screw up the thread.

First and definetly foremost: SkyPeru thank you for contributing to the thread. Your pictures are quality and it is an absolute breath of fresh air to come into this thread and actually see pictures, updates, and information pertaining to the construction of the World Trade Center.

Now to the gentleman that asked if I was on crack.

Well, I've never been asked if I smoked crack on this forum so congradulations you are my first. I realize 'good vibes' may have been a bit flakey but you are new here so let me fill you in. Out of all the Supertall threads posted up here at Skyscrapercity.com this thread seems to be one of few, if not the only one that gets destroyed due to some people utterly trashing it and instigating fights.
The thing is Vertigo600, this is a construction thread. This discussion should not stray into political bullshit. But quite often some Nationalistic POS comes in here and stirs the pot.. It sucks when you sign in and see that there are new comments and maybe updates and you click on the thread and then.......
You get to see Talb's articles on how 'non democratically' this design was 'chosen' or how it will 'surely' stall because of the smallest infractions on the duetsh bank site ( how many warnings does he get?) or issues that aren't even updated. The best is how it is a copy of a building that takes on a whole new shape at different angles and has a damn hole in it's roof.
So yeah this thread does get to the point where a mod has to come in here and at best mass delete posts or worse close it down to start over because too many posts need to be deleted.
You are new and you just may not understand the history of this construction thread. I should be able to click on it and see updates, likes/ dis likes, constructive criticism, or relevant articles. Instead I get to read about how terrible the country that I live in is, or greek history, or how it is not tall enough when it reaches the original height, or how we missed out on becoming 'great again' as if we somehow still are not. The the spire trolls come in and stir the pot.. and it goes on and on and on..

I do believe that a while back the Moderators warned that the next person to come in here and post about all the above said was getting automatically banned.. what happened to that? This is still going on.. in the 5th or 6th Wtc thread since the one I started

This thread is F.I.E.R.C.E! So much is going on, it's amazing. While I really wish this would all just end, it is really entertaining to see just how looney a lot of people can get over certain things. I'm all for stating opinions but, there's a limit to everything (like once every 10 pages when it's the same thought ). I'm so glad to see progress on the FT commence, no matter what the design. I look at it this way, the current design is so much better than what was previously designed. When bringing the design down to basics, it's pretty much what used to be there, with the exception of it being clad in all glass, and a 200ft concrete base. Yeah it has a pretty big spire, but so what? The previous had a large antenna (albeit shorter). I'm incredibly happy that something is going in at the site, and it's a plus that it's not the original plan for the NWTC.

Anyway, I haven't been able to check earthcam, has anything new that's very visible taken place today?

This is really the biggest problem. It isn't the only thread that suffers from this, but it happens way to frequently in this thread. Like I said a few times already, if someone has a problem with America and it's politics then go to the Skybar section and let it all out, but not here.

A question to the construction. When can we expect that the core is above street level? This year?

On the pics it looks like it rise.

BTW i am satisfied thet they will build a WTC like this i thought they would build 4 200m towers and thats it.......but theese are 4 supertalls cramped on a relatively small area plus GS and 99 church street + 50 west street...this will look so cool.

I hope that happens this year. At the time i visited the site, what seems t be the core, is almost at street level.

PD: thx for your words nygirl, let me exhort everybody here to get into the main topic of the thread, is it really hard to do so? Com´on !

No man I'm tired of having new ones started over a couple of idiots messes. I hate having to refer back to a previous World Trade Center thread. This crap needs to be settled by the folks in charge. Come through on that warning. You gave it fair and square and it has been reiterated by some of us here more than once when someone forgets about it. I was told to settle down with TalB at one point in here and I did. They got tired of making new threads when they weren't needed and people were just told to obey the rules or suffer the consequences. So when does this thread stop getting crapped on with non relevant BS, and spire trolls ? ?

I hope theres just some posts deleted because I like the fact that this particular thread has all the best updates.

there should be twin freedom towers
the name freedom tower is corny
the to roof height should be 1776

the reason for all this repetition is b/c there ain't a damn thing to talk about.
still have 2 tower cranes around a 70 foot hole. it's obvious we're all bored
out of our minds with the molasses progress. and YES IT HAS BEEN SLOW. don't give me 'it's complicated b/c of blah blah...', we know this is a massive project--doesn't change the fact that it is taking fordamnever. So long that we all get hard-ons when they drop in 4 new pieces of visible steel.

If I'm not mistaken, the final design chosen was actually one of the shortest ones in terms of roof height. I wouldn't be surprised if cost of construction came into play.
