Haven't checked this thread for a while. Is that steel temorary or is it permenant and part of the structure?
If so does that mean that this will actually rise?

Although no doubt the north core will need to catch up?

the steel is part of the permanent structure, the next rise of south core will suck in the lower part of the steel into its concrete.

The steel that you can see in my recent pictures is permanent. It is there to reinforce the core, and the concrete will be poured around it as the core rises. The core is being built in two halves, one for each crane. The south core is concrete that you can see in the pictures. The north core is not yet up to street level.

Part of the north core is being built over working subway tracks, so the work must proceed slowly until a protective concrete slab is poured. The weather is too cold for them to pour concrete now, so it will be a while before the north core advanced. But once the slab is complete, the north core should grow at a normal pace. The pieces of steel that look like they are hanging out over nothing will be part of the north core.

(Thanks to ZenSteelDude for this info.)

Does not compute - concrete can be poured in subzero (F) weather.

Cement additives used for sub-freezing weather are strictly forbidden at Tower One. They are either corrosive or reduce the strength of the concrete. However, heating and insulation are permitted as long as the cement does not freeze before it cures. Remember, Tower One uses "super-crete", it's more than 4 times stronger than your average 3,000psi stuff.

I just visited the Rebuild Ground Zero site and this is what I saw.


Hi, we are currently moving my office because of the bad economic situation I need to find a new location for the webcam. If you have a window which looks at the site and would like to help to maintain the webcam stream, please contact us asap. Thanks for your support and Happy 2009! All the Best, The RGZ Team.

That's unfortunate. I figured it was just a guy putting a camera in his office in the WFC and it looks like I was right.

Concrete is exothermic, it gives off heat.

Just a little pass street level but we'll never make 818 meters, 818 feet now we're talking.
