seriously shut up about how slow it is, we already know the pace of the building we can see it ourselves, we dont need 500 people telling us everyday how slow the process is seriously

If you wanna see the new WTC completed simply see the film "Babylon AD". It is a comforting sight.

What's so slow about it anyway? Seems to be moving along nicely.

Exactly. I don't want to let it grow as fast as the Burj Dubai e.g. That's too fast IMO...

I can share some peoples frsutration with the progress but it does sometimes feel as if you have a carload of kids shouting 'are we there yet, are we there yet'

I for one perhaps think that people do really want to see this project rise and are willing it to do so, they are just misguided in their frustration in the progress.

As in the words of Mr Incredible 'we will get there when we get there' ( my daughters favourite film)

Keep on NY, thinking of you all at this time

We mustn't forget, that it took almost a decade to finish the twin towers, and half of that time was spent, putting the "bones" together underground before the towers started to rise.

They took 6 years to build. Then 3-6 WTC took about 3 years, and 7WTC 2 years. This is slow, but I don't care as long as New York gets back it's skyline.

Does anyone know what is going to happen to Calatarava's transit hub now that they have a definite design for a memorial?

The Calatrava transit hub will not have a movable roof.

This is slow, but it's only going to be below grade which is slow, not suprised given the enormous complexity and size, I bet we will be shocked at how fast this goes up once they have done all the basement work.
