It's outsource panic. Just last week we had an older gentlemen shriek loudly in work, then after an awkward struggle we got him back outside. When I went to my car that night I saw a shape in my back window as I approached, somethin just didnt feel right that night

WTC.com

From two weeks ago, but you can really see how different sections of the core rise with their own pace.



The whole site is beyond massive and in just under a year will be covered with tower cranes and lots of other eye candy. The process of the hole, aside from the area of the plots of the towers, being brough to grade, I assume, will require some amount of steel and concrete or rubble to close it all up.

More floors are always appealing, but the bottom line is that we have an obs deck (and a possible new Windows on the World restaraunt) that is over 400m off the ground!

if people want to whine about floor count, then try visiting the Stratosphere Tower in Vegas! The observation starts at 750ft-800ft above ground, yet when you get out of the elevator you are on floor 108! I know its just a tower and a lot of them do this, but its really funny when even the people working in this tower believe its 108+ LEGIT floors!!

Yes it's you, they've finished ground work about half a year ago. They are now building the basement floors.

You guys, I swear. How fast do you think it should be built, overnight?

If you're complaining this much about the pace of THIS tower, then what will you do when the OTHER ones get started on the EASTERN half of Ground Zero? Complain that they should be built in two months?

Some don't understand that constructing quality in one of the most densely used areas in the world takes time, more time then building a tower in a dessert with a square kilometer of construction site around...
