After J.P Morgan pulled out of the new WTC 5 they gave up on that hideous looking design they'd planned on. Nothing firm has been agreed on yet.

As far as I know, J.P Morgan hasn't pulled out; they are going to make 383 Madison their HQ, but I think they're still in at the WTC and are not going to use that design for WTC Tower 5.

Thanks for the info btw

Freedom tower will have the same roof height as WTC? But does this mean that the total floor area of the complex will be lesser?

Id like to know why the core is taking long to rise. Seems like they barely touch it.

Maybe because this is a big construction site, and they can't work only on the core all the time...

Or not?

Its obvious there's more unseen and hidden going on than the visible work.

Don't expect anything to happen for seven months. They have to focus on other parts of the project before they can get the FT rising at a fast speed, and currently the concrete is taking a long time to cure, and they can only work on part of the core for a few hours each day. Once ALL CONSTRUCTION is above the street (in fall), there will be no problems. We've waited 3 years, so why complain about a few months? It's going to happen this year, so just hold on till then. People are saying that it would not top out in 2011, but according to the PANYNJ's new timeline, it will top out in 2011.

Exactly. I assume that they've halted work on the south core so that the north core can catch up before they begin erecting any of the steel for the podium. I could be wrong, but it makes some sense when you consider their timeline.
