I hope this tower is completed by 2011. But by looking at the progress, I doubt the whole complex will be finished by then. We need more speed on this building. Also any news for anything planned for the 9/11 memorial?

According to the wikipedia: (sometimes right)

The Freedom Tower had been expected to reach rooftop level by the end of 2010 with topping out expected by 2011. The opening of the skyscraper is currently still scheduled to occur sometime in 2011 (the 10th anniversary year of the attacks), however in the aftermath of Ward's grim assessment the media began reporting that delays would push the opening back until 2013 at the earliest.

So I guess we wait around 5 years then...

Most of the super sites around the world, aren't building four massive skyscraper at once. I mean there are a hand full that are. if you look, must of them are built in open land. There is no open land in Manhattan, other then central park and no one building there. But what people don't understand is new york city is more then just Manhattan. Brooklyn and the Bronx could have the next skyscraper boom in 20 years. I'm not so sure about Queens which has two airports.

Sidenote: Did anybody see Babylon AD? Was it just me or was tower 2 taller then the freedom tower by alot.

The Big Dig is an urban planning construction, not a building contruction, and it is formed by "numerous" construction sites. It is not considered a SINGLE construction site (there is one for the bridge, another for the tunnel and so on).

I know i was comlaining much about the EXECUSES that were used to justify the slow progress in the past years since 911 on the last pages, but NOW the progress is everything else but slow the whole site is really under construction NOW!

WTC1 above ground
WTC 2 site nearly cleared and ready
WTC 3 and 4 are nearly under construction
Former PATH terminal is gone and they are already digging for the new HUB!
They started construction on the memorial.
And those arches were installed i think it are 50...

That´s pretty much progress NOW!
