From my perspective it looks like they'll have to jump the tower cranes before they can jump the slipforms for the south core again.

I am pleased that we are finally starting to see some tangible progress being done at the supersite.

Everyone gets bashed for posting off topic information here and the memorial is off topic for this thread.
There's no need to be rude. I can't believe you just implied that the memorial is irrelevant to this thread. The Freedom Tower is not just another skyscraper. The entire globe knows the historical significance of the WTC site!

I posted these pictures, because they're the latest ones from the Port Authority. Good picture updates of this project -and as a matter of fact the entire WTC site- are extremely hard to find!

People get there heads biting off. For talking about the Freedom Tower in the Tower 2,3 and 4 thread. So I guest talking about anything, outside of this building is a no no.

Yeah, I know, thanks. If there is such a great need for strict separation, why not start a thread for each tower to be erected and another one for general discussions about the site? Problem solved. On the other hand, I don't see why that's necessary. Things haven't progressed as much as we all hoped, and 99 percent of those scanning the Freedom Tower thread are without a doubt scanning the WTC2-4 thread anyway.

Great update Carlos and welcome back to the community

Densetsu, thanks for reposting those great pictures
You can clearly see the south core is well above street level and the roof of the east-west corridor is at streetlevel.

Wow great updates. Thanks. Sorry to be off topic, just a quicky, why isn't the Deutsche Bank Building being demolished again? They said it will be gone by the end of the year, but they are hardly going to get rid of 26 stories and basements in 3 months. Another promise broken. Can someone fill me in?

Well, there was a fire a few months back, so the delay followed.

Currently, deconstruction should be taking place.
