This building won't top out for another 15 years if the core is only growing at this rate. Its ridiculously slow. Anyone know when more steel is going to be erected and the next crane??

I think the south core will rise again before north does; which is hasnt for several months. On the top of perimeters of south core there're jungle of rebers sticking out and not on the north core's.

There is not much progress at the memorial (the North Tower part).
I don't see new steel beams at the site after a few days.
It that because of the big ramp or that they are working at the path-terminal?

They first need to finish the slurry wall reinforcement along the 9W avenue. When all the scaffolding is removed they have more space to install the steel structure at once.

Well pal that's the one part that is going to get done first. Before anything else just for the 10th anniversary I am sure you know that. So progress will be getting more and more obvious with the coming months. I can’t imagine them failing that deadline.

As soon as the whole thing is above ground it will rise quickly.

Hard to say. Construction material costs have gone up thanks to the pace of construction in China and the Middle East but as things cool off there, and the US Dollar rebounds, material costs might actually come down.

That's true but for the last months it was really cheap buying stuff in the US because of the dollar vs the euro (€1,00 was $1,60 at one time).
But let's get back on-topic because it's about the Freedom Tower not the economy.

That's only half of the core rising above grade. The other half of the core and the floors built to date are still below grade, but accoding to someone involved with it at WNY, two more tower cranes will be erected when the entire buiding reaches grade; I assume it will happen somewhere in 2009.

Their is still a lot of work to go on the basement levels. The new schedule says it won't be finished by early 2nd half of next year (Q3 '09).

Most of the noticeable progress that is going to be made over the next year will be the Memorial plaza. I believe most of the roof (ground level) in the northern section should be finished. So their will be some tangible progress on the site. Maybe even the footprints of the old WTC's will be visible.

But 1WTC is not going to rise much (if at all) in the next 6-9 months or so. A lot of progress will be made on the north core, and the south core will fill out to the steel beams.

I think we'll see 4WTC and maybe even 3WTC rise "quicker" than 1WTC over 2009. Those sites have far more room to work with, much less congestion.
