It's part of the below grade transportation system; however, it runs right next to the Freedom Tower and is CLEARLY yet another milestone. According to the section elevation of the Freedom Tower, it is a part of the building's below grade area.

As for your other comment, that was not nice!
Comparisons are worthless. Every project has different designs, construction access, utilities, soil conditions, bedrock qualities and wildcards like a new commuter transportation system being built right in the region of the foundation.

But if you want comparisons then here's one for you. In my home town we have a restaurant building that has been undergoing renovation now for four years. It used to be a Burger King and then the owners decided to turn it into a sit down restaurant. So for four years now every work day construction workers go into the building and every day the building gets worked on and yet it still isn't done. It has gone through three name changes and two styles of new roof. This is a 4000 square foot restaurant we're talking about and now here everyone's complaining endlessly about a 108 story skyscraper that hasn't even been under construction as long as the restaurant.

Get a grip people.

I was just thinking...

...they could be moving the cams for better views especially since the construction is starting to take place.

It's either late 2010 or 2011, not sure which.
