Uh no dude.....That was sooooooooo 2004-March 2006 era!

The building officially started construction on April 27, 2006. The foundation has just been taking an enormous amount of time to complete. As of today, they have began to erect the first of four tower cranes that will build the 1776' Freedom Tower. From about the end of April when they have all of the 4 cranes erected on out. We will see the buildings massive core gradually rising toward street level. Then early 2008, when it reaches street level, the building will rise at enormous speed, topping out in 2010, and ready for occupancy in 2011

The model on the main page is what we will be looking at in 2011.


By the way, does anyone know how long it will take for them to fully erect the tower crane?

Will they be done by Friday?

What are you trying to proove with the link? You have been historically against the new wtc specifically because you want the old ones built and are actively trying to see to it that this happens so when I see anything you type believe me I take it with a grain of salt. You thrive on the little tid bits of stalled construction and financial problems. You really should move on like metro said. The twins aint getting built ever. These will one day. The twins are not getting built ever again. Someday this design will pierce the sky. The twins are the past. They are not getting erected on that site. The twin towers are not getting rebuilt. What I said to you wasn't a personal attack. It's truth. Go through this or any other wtc redevelopment thread and you've littered it with your own hopes that what we see won't get built. I think I am funny by the way but I really wasn't trying to be with you.

I thought they still are going to redo the spire. Is that not the case?

I was looking at older stuff, and if it were up to me, I would have used a diagrid system in the new FT. The old FT had it right, but its floors didn't go high enough. I'm still happy with the FT because it's extremely massive and its roof structure is higher than the Twin Towers. The other buildings are masive too and have world-class designs that will stun people. I hope that Tower 5 will use a sexy diagrid system. WTC Tower 5 may have have cantilevered floors, according to the latest info, and 123 Washington behind Tower 5 will end off the spiral nicely.

I agree.

Will the tower crane be fully erected by friday? And how much longer until the foundation is complete?
