Looks like they are pouring some concrete on the east side of the core. Can't tell though exactly where the buckets are pouring.

They were pouring two shear walls. The big one that parallels the east-west pedestrian connector and the one that runs along the steel columns just east of the core.

From earthcam their is new steel being prepared to be added to the south core. These pieces will probably surround the north and south side of the south core's crane.

You're totally right. More steel will be erected very soon, it seems.




Edit: They are erecting the new steel right now.

Some pics taken today on Sunday 2/22/09:















IMO it`s a huge progress when I was here last time on 9/11 last year. And what I've noticed today - they work on Sundays also, I was inside the Winter Garden and at about 6PM and they were still working, but on the street, not on FT.

Fulton Street will probably be one of the LAST parts to be poured, probably in the summer of 2013 after all of the "heavy" construction for the Freedom Tower is completed. Otherwise the tractors and other heavy machinery that has to pass through there on a daily basis would chew up the road in a matter of hours (plus there's no need to build the actual road until the Freedom Tower is completed anyway). This is what happened with Greenwich street outside the front of WTC7... it was a dirt path until November 2005, just 6 months before the building opened in May 2006.

By the way, does anyone know what will exist above the east-west corridor and below Fulton Street itself? There seems to be about a 10-15 foot vertical space in between. Will this be mechanical, or maybe just dirt for the tree roots?
