no, the forms are treated with some sort of oil to prevent it from sticking to the concrete.

There are silver scaffolding looking things setup in the south west corner by the steel beams, no clue what they are.

When we build a floor we use so called table forms, which is nothing more than steel or wooden plates placed on some scaffholding. It looks like a giant table, so thats why they're called table forms
Ah, cool! Thanks a ton.

I believe that New Yorkers need more open space and wanted new memorial park to be big enough for 9/11 memorial events.

Great pictures! I see a lot of process on Ground Zero already!

just fyi:

Q. Are their any plans to incorporate an open-air observation platform on the roof of the Freedom Tower, much like the old World Trade Center? Brett, Atlanta, GA

A.The old World Trade Center observation deck was clearly one of the top tourist attractions in New York City, and I'm pleased that the new One World Trade Center will have a similar observation deck on its top floors. Our recent projections show that we expect the new observation deck to be as popular – if not more popular – than the old one. For that reason, we're considering dedicating two upper deck floors for the observation deck.

They're skirting the question. They mention that they might put two floors, but that doesn't mean much. They will have to redesign the entire top of the tower if they want to put an open-air deck there.

Almost all that space in the foreground will be new towers.
