I could accept someone making an incorrect statement if they were just a regular contributor but the reporters job is to collect facts and it's very obvious the reporter who wrote the article to do this. Obviously the reporter is just very New York centered and not interested in collecting facts! It's not hard to collect facts on this subject if you look!

You're clearly wrong because dozens of different articles have said the same since 2005 on. Calling the reporter "NY Centered" is pure BS.

There seems to be some activity going on around the site. I'm glad to see that things are at least moving along. The faster they get above-ground, the better.

why is that? Is it because they're afraid creating such investment?

Credit crisis?

And New York doesn't need to have the biggest to remain one of the few world cities. So therefor they build shorter but economically more viable buildings, they make the developers more money. The Freedom Tower is of course a symbol of how New York will survive even after the terrible attacks. When there's a economical need for such tall buildings, New York will certainly build them. But that can take some time, just like the years between the building of the ESB and the old WTC towers. Although I don't hope there will be world war between the Freedom Tower and the next tallest building. The near future will be more about filling up the already impressive skyline.

btw, what's inestition?

And bigger =/= better. Personally I think some of the towers in Dubai are just ridiculous.

they're lifting the formwork of the core again. Further they're digging at the site for tower 2 & 3.

That makes 5 or even perhaps 6 towers over 900 feet tall u/c at the same time.
