Don't hate on Chicago, the spire looks great. Their skyline will only be even more majestic with it. I'm looking forward to that.

More renders I found.

While amazing, thats before the impact of Goldman Sachs, 99 Church, 50 West, and so on, so think how much better it's going to be.

Actually, I think I should quit drinking. today seems to me that the southern core it's lower than what it was 15 das ago? I was using beams as a reference and it really look like to me . Anybody can explain? Is it just cuz the northern one is rising and the suthern not?

I think the entire project is gorgeous, despite the fact that the Freedom Tower has a 1960s/70s circular-restaurant-on-top vibe going on.

I think you've got a serious alcohol problem, the forms are not lowered at all

But seriously, the southern core and the northern core hasn't changed since the first day of September. It probably looks a bit smaller as the floors around the core a slowly catching up

The Southern Core has changed since the beginning of the month. Since the 4th more and more rebar sticks out of it.

That still dosen't mean you can post non freedom tower related photo! Fish is right this is a freedom tower thread not a Wtc recostruction thread, and skyperu34 yes it's time to get back on topic!

It's nice that this year on 9-11, there is something rising, if only a little bit, over the site. Looks like this will grow over the next year, hopefully.

since the steal rose to street level, things been moving pretty smoothly. I'm sure they'll get moving faster as they go along. This thing will be done before you know it.
