For those interested, it seems that the south core is ready for another pour in the next days maybe even tommorow.

The telling sign is that the formwork on the south core is standing up and there seems to be a blue cap on top of the form (which is a sign that it's ready for a pour).

The north core has plenty of catch-up to play...

OMG, its always been south core rising for the last 4 months? or whatever, when is the last time north core rose anyway?

When the south core rises again, it should be how many metres above ground roughly?

And that blue cap you're seeing is nowhere near the south core, its way behind it on the side of the street. bu those white arches in the south side is nearly all setup.

At the south east corner (not counting the arches) there are silver things laid out on the floor, what is that cos I can't really make of it.

It looked blue last night. It is actually white in the light.

The proposed observation deck will be indoors on the 102nd floor - no rooftop observation deck like what we had before.

What a random comment. This is the new 1WTC thread, not the "whine about the Twin Towers" thread. This is a thread about the present and the future, not the past.

What's gone is now gone forever, you have to accept what we're getting.

huh? That seemed like statement rather than a 'whine' to me. Personally I think it's strange having an indoors obvservation deck. There's nothing like standing out in the air and surveying the landscape like the ESB and Top of the Rock.

No it's not! This is a thread about the Freedom Tower (learn to read before you post).

I was not bringing up the old twin towers, just making a comment about the proposed observation deck!

I'm holding out hope that we'll get some sort of outdoor observation deck. If not WTC1, maybe WTC3? Eventually something will replace what was lost.

Like I said previously, the restaurant is proposed for floors 100-101.

Also proposed is the observation deck for floor 102.

There will be mechanical floors above that.

But keep in mind that this is merely a proposed status.

If there is a career fair for anyone working up there for those positions, I would apply.

I agree, however, the "Top of the Rock" is outdoors, not behind a dirty window that will cause your photos from being the best that they can be (especially glare if you use a flash - and if you don't use a flash and someone behind you does at the very time you snap your photo you have instant glare).

I know what you said and I know the floor plans, I was simply stating that anything could happen and they could squeeze an outdoor deck on top of the indoor one. However, that probably won't happen due to the radio equipment so that is why I mentioned WTC3 for an outdoor deck. Flat roof, great view of Midtown for the most part.

Personally, that would be an outstanding idea - double the revenue and jobs for locals running the operation and if offered the opportunity I most likely would apply.

I wonder how much revenue the observation deck produced annually for the original WTC south tower.

If you are inside of a building at night, overlooking the surrounding skyscrapers (such as the Rainbow Room with a beautiful view of the nearby skyscrapers) - you automatically have glare.

If you or someone else uses a flash the very moment you press the shutter, it will create a very bright reflective light that will ruin your photo.

This is the very reason why an outdoor observation deck will provide for a much better night photography.

I think we all know what causes glare, the question is why in the world would somebody be using a flash? We all know that flashes are useless at the distances involved so turn the flashes off! It's the same thing when you see people using flashes at concerts and sporting events.
