Don't just delete this time. Ban.

The main reason why nothing seems (key word: "SEEMS") to be growing quickly as of the past few weeks is because the area around the core is rising and getting bigger as the core gets bigger and rises. Bcause it's all underground, you can't see the majority of the progress.

A small part of the massive amout of progress of this year you can see now is one (or perhaps more) of the four empty concrete-encased staircases in the lower left corner of the skyscraper, I am pretty sure. This is, of course, all according to the angle of the HD cam.

Just popped over to see how the Freedom Tower is progressing.

The stupid responses I'm reading are still exactly the same old shit that was on here last year and like the site itself has changed very little since last year...and the year before...and the year before that...and the year before that.....and the year before that.....and the year before that...

In six and a half years Dubai have built the equivalent of six Manhattan's, whilst Manhattan dug a big muddy hole.

Yeah, well done!

I'll pop back again next year to see if they've filled that hole in!

Skytower, this building will be an awesome one when completed. It has great public access and is nicer looking than the former twins. Unfortunately where I agree with you is that stupid ego politics got involved along with a ridiculous competition that was for nothing. There was a lot of complex underground work to be completed first and improved before they could do anything with the construction. The former twins had major city infrastructure below and now that they are gone, city planners had to modernize rapid transit, piping, walls, demolish old garages thus finally improving the entire infrastructure.

All this could have been finished much sooner if the polititians and leasing owners didn't squabble and play typical politics.

What is the big tent in the picture for? It looks like it's for some kind of ceremony or concert.

Yes, it IS. A temporary cover for the entrance. I think it provide a little bit of protection for the passengers during inclement wheather.

I have never seen a such tricky and complex construction site like this, they have to build around a subway system virtually.

I'd say that those people who have gathered there are the tousts or visitors who have come to check on Ground Zero's progress.

But I could be wrong.

I'm very excited to see this tower finished, but the works seem to be going really slow

Lots of dark colors there. May be there was a press announcement about the removal of the stairs and that picture just captured the reporters andpoliticians gathering to celebrate it?
