that's because if you look at the old WTC, most of it consisted of lowrises surrounding the plaza with the fountain.
So there's enough space for new towers in there

That webcam also cuts of a large portion of Ground Zero. So you get that impression that they are all gonna be there.

Physically, the FT has around 90 floors. Unofficially, the building has 108 floors, and offically, the Freedom Tower has 102 floors.

The "82" in the title of this thread needs to be changed to "102!"

The 102nd floor is the observation deck. There are floors on top of the observation deck for broadcasting.

Why did they take the red crane down?


By the way, will the other towers have a concrete core as well?

The red crane was most likely taken down because it's done it's job, and that was to erect the tower crane...

The red area under the tower sections of the crane is part of the lifting mechanism for the crane.... there'll be another bit similar that will sit around the tower about half way up that will also assist in lifting the crane through the building.

It'll be lifting on steel...... the steel of the building itself... just like the two at the TIMES HQ.

The last crane to go at the BofA building will most likely be the big one on the twower sections... It'll lift the one down on the roof.

Manhattan: Ground Zero Project Chief Resigns

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: April 18, 2007

The head of the agency coordinating more than 60 construction projects around the World Trade Center site resigned yesterday after two years in office. The chief, Charles J. Maikish, executive director of the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center, said he had agreed to stay for two years, and wanted to return to the private sector. Mr. Maikish, previously with JPMorgan Chase and Columbia University, said he would stay until July. Daniel L. Doctoroff, the deputy mayor for economic development and rebuilding, praised Mr. Maikish’s hard work and dedication.

It is very possible that it would be delayed again if the insurance cases are lost or if more remains are found.
