What's with the steel structure on top of the core? It doesn't seams to me as part of the main structure, more like support for the base of the tower crane. Am I correct?

The steel structure is the core, which will add to the reinforcement. Correct me if im wrong.

It's permanent structure and it will be part of the core as the concrete rises in the coming months.

The steel framework will rise all the way to the roof and be encased in concrete. Though according to our more knowledgeable members, its purpose isn't so much for added strength but to provide something for the floor beams to connect to.

Well...they're making progress. They're almost out of the hole. The north core forms should be just above street level now.

Nice update!

Has there been a pour of the north core for them to rise above street level?

I don't think so, there's rebar above street level and the forms are ready. They just have to pour that section of the core. Looks like it will happen soon.

I know it's a very small detail.....but I would have like the open memorial footprints to have had shamfered corners like the towers had.....

I see your drift but that doesn't make good news for his older brother William!

The site could use a few extra years, it will only be mostly done when William is King.

Partially. A part of the lobby on the south side is poured, and formwork has been set up for the lobby level on a part of the east side (though no concrete has been poured here yet). As is clear in jwalas' first pic, the Freedom Tower is now up to B2 or higher IN ALL AREAS, while about 50% of it is up to B1 or higher and about 25% is up to the lobby level. It won't be long (couple months) before the building is at lobby level all the way around.

Awesome pics, jwalas, especially the fifth one! Did you make that as a panorama? However you got it, it looks awesome and crystal clear.

There has been no cement pour for the lobby (first floor) yet. Forms are going in on the south side.

Is it just me or does the B2 floor slab in the second pic above seem much thicker than normal? Is that for protection from possible explosives or whatever placed on a PATH train?
