It is good to see notorious progress going up. Still too much way to go at ground level !

I think we should change the thread name to Freedom Tower (1WTC)

I only live 90 miles away, about a two hour drive ... I should take a trip up to NY to see the site again.

The Freedom Tower is an elegant design, and I like it. The base bothered me a little when I first saw the renders, but now I think they are an excellent aspect of the overall design.

Considering how long the pour was I wonder how long it will be for that concrete in the north core to cure.

Does anyone know how many stories the museum pavillion (the outdoor building part of the museum) will be? Some early renderings had it at four stories, which would be nice. Then it was scaled down to three stories. Now, some renderings suggest it may only be two actual stories with a third story closed off and devoted to mechanical equipment. This is expected to become the most visited museum in the country and probably the world. The pavillion has to be bigger than 2 stories!

I haven't heard anything official though, I'm just going by the renderings. Has anyone heard the latest on how many stories it will be?

Don't forget the biggest part of this museum will be underground. The part above ground is basically only going to be the entrance area and some candy exhibits. The real museum will be underground.

Here's one of the renders of the pavillion. Looks like it'll be 3 floors. I wish it were a larger pic. But it's the best one I can find.

thx for posting the link, one interesting thing i read on this side is that the memorial was supposed and proposed to be in the hudson river, the architect wanted to create 2 voids in the middle of the hudson river: Heres is a text passage from the site

"At first, the memorial voids weren’t even supposed to be on land. Instead, they were to be giant, square inlets set out on the Hudson River, as if twin ghosts had been carved from the surface of the water." Copyright of the text passage by: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/20...in-the-making/

I think this is a very interesting detail we hadn't heard around here. Wow what a deep thinking architect and what a brilliant idea. I hope i didn't get too off topic,l since the memorial is very related to this tower.

No I'm sure you'll get chow out lol. Because the thread says freedom tower, not memorial and Freedom tower. I don't like the idea of a memorial thats on the hudson. One because its dumb as hell, thats not where the were. Second what the hell is up with all the talks of the twins ghost. Building don't have ghost. And by saying they do is saying NYC is being haunted by them.

In case anyone gets the wrong idea about the Hudson River "voids", they were just an idea of the designer in 2002 before he entered the Memorial competition. His submitted entry had the voids in Ground Zero. From the link: "But within the sunken memorial pools, he retained the idea of a hollow in the water’s surface."
