I drove by the site yesterday and have seen the sturcture peeking out of the ground. This is a great sign, It has been a long time and can't wait to see this wonderful sturcture start kissing the sky!

I┤m aware that this construction has faced many challenges, but its taking them forever. Seriously.

come back in 5 months time when it will still be the same...

I know it will start to rise sometime soon after cores rise few more floors, no complaints then.

I think the webcams can be a very bad idea, in a way that it makes the site look tiny and like a toy and can progress quickly but look at just how tiny the human workers are from the webcam, the site is quite massive and is hard work.

It's the new Goldman Sachs building. It has a thread in the highrise sub-forum.

Does anyone know what the heck is going on at the Tower 3 & 4 site??? Yesterday I saw (on the rebuildgroundzero.com webcam) a concrete truck at the site, and right now there are five at the site:

The webcam is too blurry to tell if any concrete has been poured, but I don't know what else the trucks would be doing there if not for Towers 3 and 4. Does anyone living in the area know if any concrete was poured yesterday or today??? Perhaps someone in the area could snap a few photos whenever they get the time??? It would be great news if this means that construction has actually started, but I don't want to get my hopes up.

And yes, I realize this has to do with Towers 3 & 4 and not Tower 1. Are there any threads devoted to 3 and/or 4?
