You're right; that thread has many very good pictures on the last two pages, including some I've never seen.

Polish thread about Freedom Tower with very good pictures:
Why do we have separate thread for Freedom Tower based on different language? I think it would be easier for this thread to be translated into different languages by having language options for every users around the world. We all can share the information and pictures on one thread.

Anyway, I love the pictures! I wish they would post same pictures on here too.

"Forum Polskich Wieżowców" (The Polish Skyscrapers Forum) has some threads about spectacular project (e.g Freedom Tower or Barj Dubaj) in special section called "Za Granica" ("Abroad").

OMG

Cheers .kp, the polish thread has all the photos I never seen before, like close up shot during construction. Only disadvantage is I can't read Polish and Kon133 never post good photos in supertall section.

IS this train left there?



The steel columns aren't thin at all

In response to the first picture, the path train isn't left there, the tracks where build over the south tower's footprint. This means that they build the south tower pool over the path tracks.

The PATH tracks run directly through the site as they did under the old world trade center towers. That's one of the things that has made much of the early construction very difficult. A temporary station has to be maintained and the entrance has been moved it.

It doesn't. I've been there all hours & there is always some level of activity even in winter.

New photos in next post?

The tracks are likely also slowing down work on the parts of the northern part of the core since they can only work in certain areas during the times when no trains go by, but once the core goes up some more all of the annoyances caused by the PATH tracks will be a thing of the past.

New pics. There was a huge white crane on the site over the weekend but it was for erecting steel over the PATH tracks.

Thanks to Greenwich Boy over at Wired NY.

In other news it looks like they are close to pouring another pad near the Freedom's southeast corner.

PATH trains aren't annoying . Building a new office building complex around a working transit hub is no easy task.

^ That's the bridge has been there for ages, it's the big one that let's you down to the ground level of the building site. The angle the picture is taken from doesn't make it look like it's going down.
