The T4 tower crane is supposed to be installed tomorrow.
Great progress on the Freedom Tower; it will be a monster by the end of the year.

I dunno what's he's talking about. And if the delay did cost them, from 2003 or whenever the first master plan was approved and funded, it's more like closer to a billion dollars due to everything that has happened since then. I dunno, if people are still complaning, maybe they could become a part of the project, override the current schdeule which is on schedule, and make it go up faster so that we can have a tower of poor quality.

Of course they are on schedule, when you keep changing the schedule everytime you fall behind it's easy to stay on it! Now if you compare more things are now to the original schedule you'd see the building is significantly behind schedule. I'm not taking either side in the is going too slow argument but I do know that it's nowhere near on schedule per the original plan.

Ebola since you live in NYC and read and follow this thread constantly, it is totally obscure to me why you have posted a that old render of Libeskind's original masterplan. It will NEVER look like this!

he's just playing off of the other people who complain about schedule changing... as if the design hasn't changed a million times.

Well, technically they are $250 million over budget, as AltinD said, since the government gave them a subsidy of that amount that was not in the original budget.

I don't care if it's behind, ground breaking didn't start till 2006. Why do people keep saying it should of been finish. Look how short the first design was, If they would have built that hot trash it would be finish. I'm just going to watch the progress and hope its done before I'm 30 five years to go.
