Hmmm yeah I say its a building they're building. It could be the shape of a cardboard box for all I care. Math is one of my weak point. But art on the other hand, I was pretty good at. Look its nothing like wfc at all. From what I can tel,l it more like a isosceles trapezoid but don't quote me on it. I haven't been to school in years lol.

It did not take 10 years to build the foundations of the old WTC. How ridiculous, it took 2 years to built 1 and 2 WTC's foundations, this will be three years in Spring. This is actually slower than them. It probably took only 8 years to build the foundations of all 7 buildings in the old WTC put together, thats the amount of time used to build the foundations for every single building.

just the idea a foundation would take 10 years... no one would bother keeping on update with that foundation.

Except for the fact that WTC 1's foundations have been done for over a year.

Also they only started the foundations of WTC4 a couple of months ago and have made rapid progress on that.

I don't think this is from 9-27 because there doesn't appear to be any steel visible for the memorial visible from that view.

concrete pour at the east side of the site. I think the concrete is being poured to underneath that dark brown floor, or I'm not even sure if they're actually pouring any concrete.

I think they are pouring a wall underneath the falsework. They also poured a pad out by West Street.

Does anyone know what the heck that below-ground squared area between the Freedom Tower and West Street is going to be? I know the work that's going on south of that is for the below-ground corridor leading to the World Financial Center, but this is well north of that. It just seems like a small room being built below ground, on the other side of the slurry wall. Any ideas?

Parking garage maybe? There was a show on the Discovery Channel recently about a building in Los Angeles where the parking garage was dug out from the top down, where the concrete ceiling for it was poured and then the lower floors were excavated. Could this be something similar?

Yeah I think it's the reinforced parking garage. They're going heavy duty just in case something like 1993 happens again.

They did say this was going to be the most terror proof building in the city. Apparently they meant it.

Falsework? I thought that dark brown colour floor where the concrete tube is reaching toward is the rebars laid on the floor. In the photo below it looks like loads of dark brown rebars laid out on the floor.

It looks like they're focusing on getting the underground areas finished before they start on the actual tower portion.

One thing I've noticed in the recent pictures - the north (or is it the south?) side of the core is not as long as the other side. I wonder why that is and why it has been sitting at the same level for months now. I assume the core is not going to be lopsided, so are they eventually going to extend that part of the core so that it is symmetrical with the side that is above street level?
