Freedom tower its build because the twin towers was collapse by terrorist...
if Freedom tower design its not great design kind like asia skyscraper example, its simple because this freedom tower design its build very fast for replace old twin towers as soon as possible....

This building has a meaning...And that's why it's beautiful no matter how it's designed...

? ? You think freedom tower is being built very fast? Almost everyone else on this thread since it's going very very slowly. It's been almost eight years since the attack on the towers and yet FT is just barely reaching street level, I'd hardly call that fast!

Overall progress on the site has been very fast in the last few months, actually.

Most skyscrapers u/c around the rest of the world are adding a floor every 1-2 weeks. But we're here on pins and needles at the mere mention of a single concrete pour or a perimeter steel column being installed. That's pretty pathetic IMO. Once this things gets completely built above grade then we can all enjoy the "speedy progress", until then this is just embarrassing.

Well they would go faster if they shut down the PATH Station for a few months, but then were are the 226k people who take the train there going to go...

Anyways, the concrete pumper arm is extending north of 1 WTC, looks like a pour is imminent.

Well said. I know it's sad for people on the forums to get excited if there is a concrete pour or perimeter column installed just like you said. There is progress don't get me wrong but it's considered bullshit progress and you can't blame it all on the PATH Train being in the way because the North Core is already approaching street level and the rebar is at or above street level. There should be more workers and there probably will be once the thing starts going up. Another reason it could be going slowly is due to the lack of demand for office space. Freedom Tower is already paid for and this Tower should be going faster but it isn't because if it is built too soon it will remain empty but it's going to happen anyway. The PA wants tenants to sign on before the Tower is done this way they move right in once completed. I'm actually tired of the term "street level" because it is constantly repeated where people say oh it's approaching street level but not quite there yet and it gets annoying., At least Tower 4 is moving quite smoothly but still ways to go.

They didn't when the foundation work was still ongoing. Once the FT is completely above ground level, things will move a lot faster, too.

Looks like the northern perimeter steel beams are poking thru Vesey street now. The rest of the street should get dismantled soon.

Ohhh, if only it were next year already and we all could be looking at this tower 300 or 400 feet high. It will happen, we've just gotta be a little more patient...

Is the north core progress so slow because they're concentrating on the basement slabs?

I don't think it matters, they were supposed to build the Freedom Tower differently than most towers like this; where the steel goes up first and the concrete core gets built later. I don't know exactly how it works, they used method on the 7WTC. It's supposedly quite a bit faster. I don't know if that's still in the plans though, it was a while ago. It doesn't look like they're in any hurry to pour more of the north core, does it...

in this case, construction like freedom tower its quite fast....
its not easy to build new tower at that area *which twin towers has collapse at there...should i call disaster area...??
they should re-make tunnel for subway,electric or etc...
about the design = i think its just only the taste mater...*its suitable design with surround neighbors towers at New york...

Actually the norm in NYC is that the steel goes up faster than the core. Here 1 WTC will use a conventional construction with the core going ahead of the floor slabs.
