This might be built in the same way. if so, then this would be 1/4 of the core with its own crane
So will this portion start rising by itself, or will it not rise until the remaining core is complete?

I never understood one thing: Are they using the foundations of one of the old WTC buildings or did they build it from scratch?

What kind of foundation does this tower have?

The hole was already there from the old WTC. Portions of the destroyed underground parking area and WTC Building 6 are still standing and I'm sure they will remain standing because they reinforce the slurry wall's structural integrity. I'm not exactly sure what type of foundation this building has, but I know a lot of concrete has already been poured.

So basically they are using the old towers' foundations.

Well, Manhatan stands on bedrock, while I'm used to see completely different foundation-building techniques overhere, due to completely different soil composition.

How long will it be before they put the other 3 tower cranes up?

I have no idea. It's likely that another one could be up soon, but after that it's possible more won't be put up till the tower is above grade. We'll know before it's erected because the base will be visible via the cam.

oh ok. So will this portion of the core begin to rise now, or will it wait until the other portions are ready

I don't know. The tower crane is finally fully detached from the smaller crane.

That is one massive spire. I would like to see what they make it out of.

Its great to finally see a crane down there. What is the U-shaped structure that surrounds the crane and 1wtc? Its about 1 story high in the pit, starting NW of the crane and running to the NE of the crane. Is that from the original WTC and being saved, or is new construction. It seems like it has been there since the pit was cleaned out.

When does construction on the 200 Greenwich St., 175 Greenwich St., and 150 Greenwich St. buildings begin?

I like it. If you look at it closely, it looks sorta like both the towers smashed together into one.

Thats the old parking structure from the old wtc. It will eventually come down for the new construction, they are just worried about the integrity of the slurry wall.
