It's always the Dubai people who come in here and destroy this thread. Knock it off!

ALL the buildings put up in Chicago and NYC are put up by union crews, most progress much faster, some possibly slower, the issue is not with the unionized workforce.

Many times, the simplest designs speak the loudest. Don't get caught up in your own little fantasy world thinking that size is all that matters and that over-designed buildings are instantly of high quality. There are few sites in the world with this amount of density placed on 15 acres. I'd like to see any other city in the world try to pull off this amount of intricacy in terms of infrastructure and sheer mettle. I can tell you right now, it could only be done by a very select few.

Lol wow.. someone's disillusioned ! Maybe he's one of the premier financiers of Dubai's ill-fated "boom".

I'm so sick of the references to ugly and deserted Dubai on every single New York skyscraper thread. For the 10th time, it's much simpler to build skyscrapers on that vacant desert than it is to build in such a densely populated area!!

Enough!

I think they're also building carefully to avoid disrupting PATH service below/nearby.

This helghast character seems to be the neighborhood kid who tries to lunge himself under passing bicycles for insurance money.

From my personal experience that is not a good way to make a living.

This thread is not about any part of the Burj Dubai Mall, Tower, or anything else concerning that constr. project at all. It's about the Freedom Tower.

Why do some of you have to come to this thread and continue on with your Burj Dubai ramblings? No wonder this thread is always in danger of being locked!

They are taking it down when the temporary PATH station is opened in the next coming month. It is in the way of the permanent train station.

It seems they are making excellent progress on puting down the rebar for the first loor on the western side of the core. Some serious progress is going on in the site.

I have so far see the WTC site in 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2008. The progress is slow but very evident! I can't wait to see DT once everything is built! I love the financial district anyway, so this is just great news for me!

And please, not everyone wants to talk about Dubai all the time. Yes, we're all very proud of you and your tower and your mall and your islands, but I remember a time when each thread was devoted to the said topic. Please stay on topic or stay out.

Make that the 2nd floor. The core has to rise another floor before they can do the B1 floor.

That pic is amazing. The building side seems to be huge. How big is it anyway?

PS. To all those Dubai cheerleaders. Stick to your topics. We already know which cities are both important from all and various aspects and great to live in.
