If it's Westfield in charge of that aspect of the building use, we can probably expect to see all the same stores that Westfield has in all their other malls in the region: I'd bet there'll be a Gap, Hollister, Banana Republic... in short, nothing compelling me to visit the mall except as a way station en route to some other attraction at Freedom Tower.

Has anyone referenced the Wikipedia article about the mall?

Possibly so. FYI, Wikipedia isn't a good source since it is not 100% facts because it can be re-edited by any internet users.

I sort of doubt the foam insulation is to prevent freezing. It seldom if ever gets extremely cold in NYC and that doesn't occur until after the first of the year. Concrete is only susceptible to freezing for about the first 10 days or so, after that there is insufficient water remaining to freeze. Chemicals can also be added to concrete to keep it from freezing.

You do know lots of pages are protected or certain things on the pages, the numbers at the end of statements are links to sources, and ive notice that if there is something that is not right on a protected page it is fixed back

But most of the times, people find many false infos and vandalisms in many pages because they allow people like me to edit and add stuff into their pages.

I think wiki should have restrictions on who can become members of the website.

Anyway, the new concrete looks set at the south east corner. Interesting thing is that I rarely or never seen the core with a floor higher than it. It looks like north core is disappearing the highest current floor. So is there 1 or 2 more floors to go until we see ground floor? (south half of the site)

Trwają też prace konserwacyjne i modernizacyjne pozostałych pięter wewnątrz muru oporowego (zachodnia ściana pod West Street). W tamtym miejscu będzie tworzony tunel łączący World Financial Center z nowym Mall'em i PATH oraz Freedom Tower. co do samej wieży to prace przy niej postępują. Widać też wyraźne fundamenty WTC4. W tamtych okolicach też trwa wykańczanie nowego muru oporowego.
Co do Memorialu to średnio zaawansowane prace widać przy południowym zbiorniku po WTC2 oraz intensywna konserwacja muru oporowego od strony zachodniej i północnej .

Freedom Tower:








Memorial:











Zabezpieczana linia metra która w tym miejscu będzie modernizowana i całkowicie naprawiona za kilka lat:




Rozbierana ostatnia pozostałość po poprzednim kompleksie WTC a dokładniej pozostałości Mall'a i drogi wewnętrznej kompleksu przed WTC5:

Pod tą część inwestycji sa już stawiane pierwsze ściany nośne w południowej część GZ. Za niedługo zostanie usunięta wschodnia ściana Wanny. Obie część budowy zostaną połączone w jedną (Memorial i wschodnia część GZ). Trwają też prace nad zabezpieczeniem linii metra biegnącej po środku placu budowy, która to będzie się opierała na skale przez stalowe kolumny które są obecnie montowane/zamontowane.
Ciągle trwa wywóz resztek starego Mall'a, gdzie stanie nowe sjeście do PATH.

I hope the northern part of the core will be going up soon since there is a lot of rebar sticking up out of it.

You missed a few November pictures from RGZ:

They are first getting rid of the abestos, then they will continue to take down the steel on the building, that is why you don't see any visible progress.
