The perimeter columns well extend from the ground floor to the 3rd floor before being tied together by spandrel beams.

The second floor is hung from the 3rd floor and the core so structurally it well not be seen at the perimeter. From the 3rd floor to the 20th floor (numerically the 20th floor is the 7th floor) the columns well be joined by diagonal columns as well as girts that support the curtain wall.

I need to sort out some photos & then post, been putting it off too long, tomorrow expect tons of new stuff from me!

On another note more on topic, the progress in the last 2 months is more than the last 2 years. This is happening very fast now, so i'll try to be more on the ball with getting & posting photos, since i'm able to get there ~once a week.

He posted those a while back. There are some more recent photos of his on wtc.com though. He asked me to call him a few weeks ago (worried about the video I shot of him standing on the ladder on the edge of the roof, lol) and I told him how us on this forum and others wish he would update his website more often.

The steel you see all the core will actually be embedded into the core as the core rises. It provides additional structural support as well as provide attachment points for the steel that will support the floors.

Be sure to let him know we appreciate all of his pictures. If he keeps it up over the next few years we're going to have some fantastic shots of the construction that no one else would be able to get.

Well, the Freedom Tower has rised above street level in that time and the rest of Ground Zero had al lot of construction progress.
So it's definitely not what you're saying.

Does anyone know how many floors is the bunker-like ( bomb-proof) lower floors of this complex?

Only the lobby is going to have a concrete wall around its perimeter, and only around part of it. The entrances at the east and west plazas will have huge open glass facades. Also, above about 15 feet, it will be a "column" of concrete then a tall window, then another column of concrete, then another window, and so on, much like in the orignal lobby of the Twin Towers. Above the lobby, there will be no concrete walls throughout the rest of the base (from what I've heard).

By the way, to all, remember that the North Tower lobby... about 15 feet up to the mezzanine... was walled off on its north side, just led to the concourse on its east side, and led to the Marriot on its south side. Only the west side had actual windows top to bottom. So those worried about the walled off part of the Freedom Tower up to about 15 feet with no windows... remember that the original NT had much the same design.

I'm not sure, but it looks like they're pouring something on the south core
