Why post screencaps from the webcam that we all have access to?

Not everybody has access to the cams because you need to be using Internet Explorer to see it. No Macs... No Linux... No Unix...

Besides, once that moment has passed, it cannot be seen again ...live. So posting caps is a good think

Well then my apologies. I'm not having any trouble looking at it using Firefox, though.

It's hard to tell from the aerial photo, but it looks like the construction is ready to break through street level. What's the estimated completion date of the tower again?

I approve of the use of Earthcam caps.

Not that anyone needs my approval of course.

I wonder when the Church St temporary PATH station will be torn down.

Yes, it has 1 floor left to reach the street level. I hope they will get faster after achieving street level.

BTW, the desired schedule for construction, calls for the tower's foundation to commence April of 2006, concrete to grade by the end of 2007, topping out in 2009 and completion in 2011.

First: construction work on the tower started in April 2006. 2 years ago not 3 or 4 years as you said.
It took 6 months to dig the caissons for the foundation in worlds hardest rocks. This is a normal speed.
The foundation work itself took also 6 months. Also this is normal for a tower of this size in a dense urban environment. The construction of the subgrade structure will take about 18 months. A bit slow but parts of the building are being constructed between functional PATH tracks.

Second: I'm not sure if you look at pictures or start babbling right away. You said you see no core. The core of the FT is present and 3 stories tall (one story from grade). You also asked when you'll see this tower will grow. Answer: NOW, A few days ago a large part of B2 (the second basement floor) was poured. Also is formwork present for the remaining parts of B2. basement floor B3 & B4 were poured a few months ago.

Here's a picture:

The FT is that big piece of concrete in the right top of the picture.

I was wondering , what is under the center big highpath that I signaled in red? I know this is gonna be where the new street will be , but is there any tracks for the PATH/subway under it ?



i'm also confused about what line is running where on this site , the big station in the middle of the site is what station ? And where the " looping " tracks are going ? to jersey ?

I can't really figure out using the metro map :

The looping tracks are the PATH train that goes to New Jersey. The stationhouse for that is just above the red line you drew on the picture.

The line that runs where the red line is is the 1 train. If you look at the map you posted you'll see a greyed out station called World Trade Center

Thx , I found a pretty good subway map of the area.

But I still have some questions :


Is the Path terminal station open yet or closed? Are the tracks really doing a loop like on this map or is it just a regular dead end.


Will it be a new Cortlandt St. station on line 1 beeing built on the new site? Or maybe it's already operational?

The Cortlandt St. station on the yellow line is still open?



Sorry for asking so many unuseful questions but it's pretty hard to understand what's going on and where on this site
