indeed. you can see that this is real quality cladding. Also the aesthetic qualities are very high.

I could not agree more. No one will be let down. It's going to look beyind amazing. I think they already tesed the glass in the base or will be doing it soon. I recall seeing pictures of it (not sure if it was a sample of the real thing or something that might look like the real thing) and they looked great too.

Well 7 WTC wasn't a disappointment I can't imagine the centerpiece being one. Really looks good I can't wait to see it on the real thing

I'm glad the corner stands out like it does in the renders.

This tragedy just never ends.

Core Pour

Here we grow again... We have spotted the trusty concrete pump extended out to reach over to the north core and the iCrete trucks are lining up. Next week we'll be seeing the sliding forms being erected on the B2 level to match the southern core.

For me, one of the new standards in clading is Comcast in Philly. If they match that quality, the job will be done!
THIS is... kind of on the way... Hard to judge without a noon sun and proper reflections.

Cheers for them updates. Am quite surprised at the lack of updates. To those in New York is it a hard site to access and take photos of?

there's only limited angles from which you can take a pic from...unless you're up in a neighboring building.

but i would say that there isn't very many updates because there isn't any really noticeable progress, that we can see very well anyways. once it comes above ground, trust me, there'll be many frequent updates

i think its because of the lack of progress that you can see with out being an architect. But looking at those pics, i can only quote Towly from south park..."I have no idea whats going on man"

Your not really suppose to take pictures of skyscrapers and other projects in NYC. I've seen people stop and ask what they were doing. But hey all that craziness could have died down. But everytime I've come back to the city, I've seen people ask not to take picture of the skyscrapers. And believe me you don't want the NYPD breathing down your neck, they don't play when it come to anything.

The workers spent the last two weeks jackhammering 50 square yards of weak concrete from the core because it contained too many air bubbles, but everything is going back to full speed now. All of the concrete poured before this bad batch was perfect.

So your considered a terrorist in New York if you take pictures of buildings? I'd hate to see New Yorks jail's they must be filled with thousands of Tourists for taking pictures of tall buildings.

I took some pics when I was there visiting Ground Zero. Three times.

Is this something new now? What's next, stopping tourists from visiting Ground Zero?!!
