This is all very good news, guys, and it will be even more exciting soon. In a few months we'll be seeing a skyscraper as a whole start to go up. It will be great to see most of the below grade section done, and that's what they are doing now. I am sure that all foundation work is complete by now.

Someone has mentioned that some of the beams are now connected at the top. I guess we won't be able to see anthing till the PANYNJ or someone takes good pictures. Obviously, even more beams have reached above street level these past few days.

yeah you can see the connection in that picture near the lower left corner or at less it looks connected, it could be my eyes. But it nice to see this building growing it's bringing tears to my eyes this is so great.

In roughly a year, I bet WTC Tower 4 will be looking like the Freedom Tower does now, and the FT will be many floors tall with more cranes.

I have a question about the time when the WTC collapsed. When they removed all the debris they found melted steel, how did they manage to remove it? Is this the reason why freedom tower is nearly seven years after the collapse still not far over street level?

construction on the freedom tower didn't start to 2006 late 2005 that two and a half years not seven like you say. When I visit the set in early 2005 nothing and I mean nothing was going on. They didn't even start digging, so this building is right where it should be.

As of today, you can clearly see one of new horizontal steel beams on the HD cam.

Isn't this from the old Freedom Tower?

NewYorkForever2016, the rendering you posted is outdated and was not even official. It will likely look nothing like that, except for perhaps the tower section of FT.
