How many times does this have to be said? The steel that you see in that picture is going to be encased in walls of 3-4 feet of the strongest concrete ever made. The exterior columns are either the first or second strongest building columns ever created. The new 1WTC is going to be many times stronger than the original.

You guys need to calm down. Not everyone in the world has been following this project like we have. Why don't you try correcting the guy instead of bashing him?

Look closer. Those steel beams sticking up out of the ground surrounding the core are so heavy it takes both cranes to lift them. They had to order them from Luxembourg because no mill in the Western hemisphere could make them. You could hook up to those beams and lift Lower Manhattan.

So, I guess I gota post this again.

Mostly the erecting steel is there to anchor the floor beams to the core, and speed erection.

PS the perimeter columns are made of high tensile low alloy self tempering steel, really tough stuff. The erecting steel is almost as tough.

The west is superior. End.


In any case, I'm sort of dying from the lack of the HD cam. Aside from not being able to see the WTC, I have no idea what day of the week today is or the date or month because the WTC cam is the only method I use to find out the date.

It a shame that this huge project doesn't have own webcams... I can't wait to see the site again by our webcams, becouse when they were working I was checking about 5-8 times a day the progress

I just checked some of the lower quality working cams and the site is extremely active today, which is nice to know considering the bad weather outside.

I think it's starting to look like a tower now, I can sort of see the outline.
