Great update! I am wondering why not they build entire old WTC tower site (supposed to have huge waterfalls on it) instead almost 3/4 of it?

There was deal made by either former New York Governor Pataki or Spitzer not to build new towers on the original Twin Tower footprints. This request came from the families of the 9/11 victims. So all the towers had to be pushed back to the corners of the site.

I apologize for my bad English. I meant, look at that picture, that waterfall site where old WTC site was at, construction didn't built entire only 3/4 of it. I hope I am clear this time.

Oh, that.

They are not finished with the steel yet. That has been making me wonder also. I think they're pouring the concrete on the floors below the waterfall first, while there is still an opening. It's probably easier.

Why not they pour it first before they build up? I think it should be much easier.

I'm not sure why they poured the concrete with one of the corners still uncompleted, as opposed to waiting until the entire footprint was complete.

However, I think the reason that corner is still left undone is because they are building an unground museum to document the World Trade Center attacks and having that corner open probably makes it easier to work on the museum.

You would think, I don't know. Good question. They can run tubes down into the memorial for the concrete also. But maybe it's just easier there to leave that side of the waterfall open right now. They will finish the steel soon. Steel construction on the memorial is supposed to be done by the end of the year (although, all the other projects on the site are a few months behind the original schedule, so I expect the memorial is a little behind too).

Im guessing they have to build what they can when they can to save time and money.

maybe they will pour 2 floors at the same time? This would save time.

Logistics is a major problem with the number of projects and lack of staging areas at the site. Bottom line is, they determined it would be cheaper and faster to leave that corner undone while they worked on the rest of the memorial. It gives them more staging area and makes it much easier working on main part and moving things in and out.

Webcam has a problem. Stopped at 3:00 A.M. EST this morining.

Anyways, I think I can make out steel beams being placed on the memorial between the two WTC footpints. Probably a continuation of the steel that was placed in that same area a couple of days ago. No visible progress on 1WTC, though I think they'll be 100% at street level at some point in July, which includes the deconstruction of Vessey Street
