Yes it is,sorry, and because of that, another death reported at Ground Zero was added to the list of the many who died there, not to mention the two firefighters this past summer.

Whether his name was physically added to the list, I don't know. Probably not because that wasn't 09-11-related.

Ok. Here's a question;

Did any of you hear that some more of the steel came for the tower the other day?
It was already installed. It's been trickling in in small batches.

This thread has waay too many off-topic posts and is full of petty infighting. If it continues, accounts will be suspended. If you don't have anything to say that's directly related to this project, then don't say it all.

That's not a picture rendering; it's a video rendering, and it was great. I'd love to shove it in the face of all the imbeciles who call the base dull, but I lost the link.

I love how you can see the beams. That really makes up for the fact that there are no windows. I wonder if there will be a lot of clear glass as part of the massive entrance.

LOL, BS, BS, BS, BS.

That was a joke, btw.



I honestly prefer the original World Trade Center. The new designs do nothing for me. They certainly are massive buildings, but that's not enough.

Nonetheless, they are very modern and while I can't say all of them are unique I do sort of like the Freedom Tower itself.

So where can this video rendering be found?
Btw it'll be great to follow the progress of those beams once they start soaring above the street level.

Yes, I also like those glass panels that surround the base!! I think it looks so cool, and sends a pretty powerful message of majesty and greatness.

And yes, I like the way that those giant beams can be seen as well! I like the base on 7 WTC, but I like THIS one even better!
