Completely unbelievable how slow the construction of this building is.

You'd think the carpenters and steel workers I work around were working on this.

It's; How many hours can we waste on this jobsite today?

Some people's brains are too slow.

Nah... That's clearly from about a year ago.

Back then, there was basically nothing compared to what's there now.

Hey, that's what I found instead of complaining in this forum, I at least provided something.

All most of the posters here do is complain about stuff they don't understand. What they really need is:

Just for a frame of reference, does anyone know how long it took from the day the original WTC was approved until the 2nd tower was completed?

The plans were made public in 1961.

Groundbreaking was August 5, 1966.

One World Trade Center complete 1970.
Two World Trade Center complete 1972.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was April 4, 1973.

One more thing I'd like to add:

The World Trade Center was so huge, it had it's own zip code: 10048

Not to mention it had about 200 elevators, about 90 in each tower...

Learn some respect. It wasn't nearly ten years ago, coming up to 7. Yes New York, Washington, Pensylvannia and the world has to move foward from what happened on September 11th 2001, but that doesn't stop people from forgetting the tragedy. People will not forget, the world hasn't been the same since, infact its a terrible mess now.
Just learn some respect, imagine if you lost someone or some people who you knew there, or at the Pentagon, or Pensylvannia, you wouldn't say what you did. But back to WTC1, yes construction is slow, but this is one of the most complicated developments in the World, it will be worth it when complete.

I doubt this building is any safer than the old towers. If you tripped over a chair in this building you're just as safe as tripping over a chair in a grass hut.

Read the safety part of this section. I also read before that the freedom tower can withstand multiple plane crashes

IF you walked into the freedom tower you would be just as stupid as you are if you walked into a grass hut, this building has 20 floors on the bottom of a concrete wall to withstand bombs, and uses much more up to date techniques

It's really not that uncommon. There are a lot of buildings in America with their own ZIP codes. There are even certain people in America with their own ZIP codes (real ZIP codes, not ZIP+4/ZIP+4+2). To send them a letter all you put on the envelope is their ZIP code.

Merchandise Mart in Chicago had its own ZIP code -- 60654 -- until a couple of weeks ago when the surrounding neighborhood lost 60610.
