1 more floor to go ( on south side of the core) I think 2-3 floors to go on north side. In about 1-2 weeks ( after concrete will cure) south side will rise up

The rebuildinggroundzero webcam seems to be stuck on February 12th, does anyone have a pic of the results of the 28 hour pouring? Or a link to a different webcam for that matter...

After seeing webcam... I am surprised that how quickly they processed on WTC 4 compared to WTC 2 and 3. I am wondering why is that?

Port Authority retaining wall in the way, Tower 4 already has tenants lined up, etc.

Good to know. Do you know what tenants will move in that tower 4?

The framework seems to be part of the base of the tower, not temporary form support, however it still could be form support. When i was there saturday i saw them pumping concrete into 2 areas. They have a lot of the steel in place, and i believe things will progress faster now. Will post photos (& vids if i have any) ASAP.

The Port Authority itself along with several Federal agencies will be the tenants in WTC4.

Private corps will also be in all 6 WTC towers. At first there was supposed to be a "China Center" to increase trade relations between China and the US in 7WTC, but that obviously died, and now its supposed to be in the Freedom Tower, but I dunno if that Chinese real estate company or SP/PANYNJ have accepted or if the plan is still alive.

The main reason why WTC2 and WTC3 haven't started yet is that the old temporary PATH entrance, which sits partially within the future footprints of both buildings, hasn't been excavated yet... and still seems to be nowhere finished. Another reason for the delay in WTC3 in particular was that last summer Merril Lynch (one of the future tenants) wanted to redesign part of the building, so that put construction on hold (though with the financial problems with Merril Lynch, it's unclear whether any re-design will even happen).

Nothing can happen until that PATH entrance is completely excavated.

Well, what the hell are they waiting for? Who's job is it to clear that area? PA or SP? If it's the PA, I say they are utter idiots because they are the ones being fined and paying SP. If we don't start seeing more progress in that area soon, something is really messed up.
