^ When have you ever seen the foundation for a skyscraper complete in 2 weeks? It takes time. So learn how to be patient.

I know some of you will see me as a partypooper, but despite the kangaroo crane, there hasn't been that much foundation work. I have been to the WTC site on Sunday and after looking at it from the Vessy St Br and the Winter Garden, there wasn't that much there except for concrete casting. This portion does not need a kangaroo crane for that. Seeing that it won't rise for almost another year, only supports the crane being up prematurely even more.

The crane will rise with the core i believe. So they placed it now before the core starts rising. Since it is set to reach street level, the next month and a half will probably be tell tale of what will happen on the site. This thing should start rising very soon.

Plus you must consider that much of the tower footings are special, due to the train tracks, IE load transfer footings, and outrigger trusses, that are not only critical but also time consuming to install, as opposed to a semetrical footing layout.

Not exactly.



> 1st-19th floors - Podium (not fully used)
> 20th-63rd floors - Offices
> 64th floor - Sky lobby
> 65th - 88th floors - Offices
> 89th and 90th floors - Transmission equipment
> 91st - 100th floors - Mech
> 100th - 101st floors - Restaurant
> 102nd floor - Observation deck
> 103rd - 108th floors - Mech



102 floors in total because they aren't counting anything above the observation deck.

Most likely the fact that i should have submitted this design a few years ago

i only did a quick mock up, i hate that building with the slanted roof next to freedom tower.. no offence, but it just looks like half the top has collapsed and ur left with that... not exactly appropriate imo.. so i prefere this "trident of freedom" design.. makes sense to me, going from 2 towers to 3 =)

Renderings are ok but IMO tey should have rebuilt the twin towers.

Those four buildings look like four random buildings.

haha well i dont beleive in religion watesoever so i think its a good idea =P

the only thing i thought of was putting 3 towers insted of 2, with one being taller to make it stand out, i noticed it looked like a trident, which to me has always been a strong symbol.. and then "trident of freedom" just came out of my little creative mind! lol
