Good to see this whole site progressing, it's clear to see the massive amount of excavation and clearance that has had to take place, even before substructure work can start. How many sub grade levels will the main towers have? and are they used for car parking?

It'll probably be about 7, as before with the Twins.

And yes, there will bw parking again, but exactly where, I'm not sure yet.

I cant tell you how many people still think that they are building the bird cage proposal.
These very same people are quite surprised to hear that there are 4 BIG ASS beautiful (masterpiece) towers being rebuilt on the site.

Just to make a point and to only make a point.. --> Even if we say that this building hypothetically were to suffer the same fate as it's predecessor, there is no way we are going to be seing that freedom beam again!!

In reality though, this will be one of the most secure places on the entire planet (even with it's supposed shortcomings that nimrods seem to fixate on).
Also the simple fact that everybody is now vigilant. If some ******* were to lets say, pull out a gun or a bomb, you would have everyday normal people literally jumping up to beat the shit out of anybody trying to cause a problem (this is NO joke!!). What Im trying to say is that while the security will be quite substantial with this complex, its still going to be nothing compared to the thousands of "vigilant", and "ready" everyday normal people that want (like you and me) to never see anything like this happen again!

This complex is going to be standing very strong for "at least" a couple of hundred years. I was stuck on the idea of replacing the twins as they were for a while too, but its much better this way. This masterplan has evolved into something that is light years ahead (in comparison) to the originals and there are no words to quite describe just how elegant this is going to be. NONE of us saw this coming back when they were going to build the birdcage proposal! The original twins were very beautiful and nicely crafted inside (I never did get to see them ) but the fit and finish on these new structures will be probably unlike anything else that has been built in this country to date.

I cant wait until later this summer, which is when this mammoth core, and surrounding steel structure will start to climb above the street level. Ebola is for the most part correct, as I can recall throughout the years watching construction in NY and noticing that they tend to like keeping the steel or concrete structures (whatever is used) level with the gains in core height.. For that simple reason, these towers are going to be creating quite a shock and awe effect...

This is going to be one of the most watched construction sites ever, and everybody involved knows that quite well <-- Another reason that the builders are going to kick some serious ass, other than the fact of the sheer significant importance attached to this site for all of the people who have been hurt (and for all of the lost souls) by what happened in 2001.

I just wanted to add...

The chances of this project being stopped for any reason, are about as great as the "Cloverfield" monster jumping out of the Hudson and breakdancing in central park! If that were to happen, maybe he could help us all out by eating whats left of the Duetch Bank tower.

They might, but then again, they might just use a built-up dirt ramp instead.

Thank you!

Great minds think alike, hey?! Meeting of the minds.

Yeah, I don't like the way that they phrase things either. That was inappropreate, stupid, ill-timed and out of line to make such a dumb and idiotic statement like that!!!

What is wrong with NY? Well your bedrock is to hard It took the PA 6 months to dig some caissons for the tower. Other than that the tower is progressing with a normal speed compared to other towers

I dont like its base. I think that i would prefer it if the shape was more uniform from the bottom to the top. But except that, it is a nice design.

On the contrary, I think the base creates an interesting design element, otherwise the overall design verges on the banal. Besides, when seen from ground level the base should enhance the overall package.

All that's left is from them to build and complete the tower.

The talk is over, now they should have no problem getting the job done!

Is there any chance that the change in the NY governor will affect this project? Like with the planned leases from the government? I know last time the governor changed there was a question of how he would relate to this project. Anyone know the new guy's views?

Is that based on something you know, or just a guess? No offense, but you tend to be very optimistic so I'd like to know if you've actually heard anything.

I'm sure that he'll leave things for Ground Zero as is. I see no reason that he would want to change anything.
