The steel beams that are being installed south of the FT site are part of the Calatrava transit hub. They are framing the cooridoor that will connect the WFC and the FT to the Path station.

yea but u cant rly c into the site theres scaffolding around many sides and the open sides have obstructed views, however the bridge between the WTC and WFC has a good view. (the farther north bridge)

Rendering of Transportation hub

Hey Guys, Has anyone got any renderings of the Transportation Hub at FT? I'm wondering what it will look like. Also can someone post the link to SSP?
Thanks
Lance

Great pictures! Thanks for reposting Ebola and ZZ-II
Never thought those members are made of steel. Here in The Netherlands we mostly make those complex shapes out of concrete, much cheaper

I hate to be the one that brings this back ....again...but it seems that STILL not much going on on this particular site.....
Groundbreaking for the construction of the World Trade Center was on August 5, 1966
The ribbon cutting ceremony was on April 4, 1973
The above two lines are from wikipedia...=7years
So let's get this straight...less technology , less groundbreaking architectural design and still they've had everything done in 7 years...
???
If anyone looks at the sight right now..it's still bellow "0" level?!?!?!?!?

I can only think of one thing.....it's maintained on purpose for the visitors/tourists!

Don't you think?

The only thing I think is how to comment on your post while not offending you.
Do you really think that on September 12th excavation started on the FT site between the burning debris and death bodies? That there was a complete and detailed plan available for the FT, which was signed a few months BEFORE (examination of those plans takes a few months) before the twin towers were attacked by muslim terrorists?

Did you know that the design of the FT changed 3 times?
Did you know that that construction work started on 21th of April 2006
Did you know that that they had to remove 25% of the FT's concrete in January, because of its bad quality?
Did you know that the concrete suppliers were striking since the second of July?
Did you know that they placed a bunch of steel columns and horizontal members on the site?

I don't think you knew those things, but I'm sure you know what I'm thinking of you when I'm reading your post.

I'm sorry ...
I hate to be "The Devil's Advocate".....
You mean to tell me that it took 5 years for the workers to clear the debris???
I can see on the web cams the progress but still...there is not much going on
I do believe that the whole bunch of the people working ...are just pretending and cashing in the check / cash....since there are less and less immigrants willing to work hard for less $$...sorry for being that pragmatic / straight..

It is only strange to see that site at virtual "stand still" for the past 7 years or so...it is to say the least frustrating and New Yorkers must feel just the same
It looks that you believe that the Pentagon has been hit by a plane too?...it looks like something else happened....anyway

I do apologize if I've offended you...It was not intended...it was only a point of view on the progress on the above site....as I DO WISH /WANT to see that project finalized

Now back to the Freedom Tower, the arches look impressive, really the first sign of the quality that this building is going to have!

15 years? 17 years? just to remind you, in case there was still somebody in this galaxy that didn't know this: semptember 11 was in 2001, not 1993....
some comments really make me think.....nothing positive.
Oh, one last thing : we are in the year 2008, not 2016/2017, in case you had some confusion....

Yes you have offended me. With the stupidity of your post. September 11 happened in 2001 not 1991. Learn how to subtract dumbass.

If there was ever an award for dumbest post of the year on SSC...you my friend would have taken the prize...

Yes! You're ignorance has offended many people. Please learn some facts before posting. This construction is a point of national pride and sorrow for many Americans.
