Yes but something has to rise on that site along with the memorial. Its been a big hole for too long.

Im pretty sure the memorial and the Freedom Tower will be the first to go up fast, and the freedom tower will be first to reach the sky

4WTC is expected to be finished before 1WTC. 3WTC will also have quite a bit of progress completed as well (maybe even topped-out before 1WTC).

On this site they have this webcam you can look up each moment of the day that you want.
What I really like is the position (freedom tower and memorial at the front and tower 2, 3 and 4 at the back).
But the cam has no some technical issues so somebody knows what's going on here?

There was talk of this by the Port Authority, but it was hotly rejected by the memorial foundation who said that this would be unacceptable, and that once it opened it would have to stay open. The 70-page October progress report says nothing about the memorial being open for the 10th anniversary and then closing again... it says the memorial will be COMPLETED for the 10th anniversary, though the museum and pavillion won't open for another year and a half or so.

Ward and Port Authority Chairman Anthony Coscia also said they do not believe the current crisis on Wall Street will have any long-term impact on financing the project or future tenancy in the five office towers to be erected on the World Trade Center site.
"We (New York) will remain the financial center of the world and Lower Manhattan will remain that home," Ward said.
"We've built some of our most iconic structures during the Depression era," Coscia said.

95 percent of the contracts needed to complete the $3 billion-plus Freedom Tower have been signed.

I believe the building has 6 basement levels. So I'm guessing at least 3 floors underneath the one they just put in. It's great to see some visible progress around the site.

It depends on how you look at it, but if you consider the concrete which was poured on top of the bedrock as being the 1st level, then they're currently working on the 4th and final level (or should I say the 1st level? either way, I mean the top highest level). The only thing that's left to do is to finish the floor for this level and to start working on the lobby level, which will be the ceiling for this level.

Does anyone know what the Port Authority is talking about in their October progress report where they say that the Freedom Tower will be "significantly" to street level by Q4 2009? They seem to be implying that the building won't even be completely to street level in a year from now. They have only one floor left to COMPLETE (half of it is already done) before they can start working on the floor for the lobby, at which point the building will be at street level no matter HOW you look at it (core/steel columns/floor). I have no idea how they can estimate it'll take another year to finish half a floor.

Q4 2009: Begin erection of tower steel
For those who were freaking out about this, I think it means that they won't start building the office tower section until that time, but we'll see the podium/mech/lobby section with the first floors go up. It really doesn't matter since it's progressing well right now.

Correct me if i am wrong, but back when they build the old towers, didn't they build a floor per week?(Can't remember where I have heard this). Of cause this is the typical floors I am talking about. Is this going to be the same goal on the Freedom?
