look at the webcam: http://www.earthcam.net/users2/inter...2&clientid=158


btw...seems they installed 2 concrete-pumps at the south core , maybe a sign for more speed in the near future!

Don't they still have concrete unlocked/hidden in the southern core's formwork which haven't jumped for months? I can't be asked to look every single day's webcam for past few months...

But I can see some thing was installed on the south side of the south core yesterday (tall/ thin, maybe stair case...) but today there was white thing added on top of that.

And something blue as well more to the south (maybe this is the concrete pump) Can't tell anything with unclear vision, but clearly some progress and changes in the past few days. Especially the roofs on top of the white arches are fast progressing.

It doesn't take long to spread out corrugated metal, in many projects that entire area would be covered in a day or two, here is taking weeks. Eight

well obviously the roof for that corridor isn't a high priority.. nothing depends on that structure at this point and wont for a while.

I think that this speed is more than good...I mean, this is one enormly huge construction site with 5(?) buildings in progress in the middle of the winter in the middle of the biggest city in the US and one of the biggest cities in the world...Think about that...

That's the old Deutsch Bank building, which was damaged by one of the towers collapsing. It used to be 15 stories taller. They're tearing it down very slowly. WTC5 will be built there once they get it down.
