A lot of green rebar going in outside the tower footprint, on the corner. I'm a little surprised that they are doing sidewalk work right now. Wouldn't you normally think that would be the last thing they would do?

My guess would be that they're probably going to use those areas as staging areas for materials and equipment while they build the tower. Space is very limited and once the building starts rising they will need a lot more space.

Yes, but do they have to pour the concrete there right now? Couldn't they just do the concrete and rebar part later? Unless they are going to put a mobile crane on that section...

Interesting, the destruction added a new way to spark NY in a way.

If you look at Cam 2, it seems that they have removed most of the rest of the street north of the freedom tower!! Soon the shape of the tower will be clearly visible!

btw: what is this white tent or hut in the northern pool doing?

Yeah I have no clue what that thing is!
Perhaps it is for equipment?

New museum renderings:



A few differences you might notice in this latest rendering from previous ones... There's now a glass wall around the survivors staircase (answering the common questions about whether visitors would be able to walk on the stairs). Also, it looks like the floor and walls of the chamber are now a more brownish color whereas the box marking the North Tower footprint remains white... allows the North Tower itself (and presumably the South Tower one too) to "stand out" better instead of them just blending into an all white environment below ground, which is nice. Also notice the North Tower antenna in the background.



Also, I don't remember this being discussed here but David Dunlap has done a new piece in his WTC series of stories, this one focusing on a part of the museum which will be an exhibition hall devoted to remembering the victims through photos and personal stories. I think this will be one of the best parts of the museum (according to the report, it'll be located below the South Tower pool at bedrock level). You should read the report if you haven't already. It also contains 5 renderings of the place...

It's good they finally enclosed the survivors staircase in glass, I agree with that. Although, I'm a little surprised by the post supports sticking through the middle of the staircase, that seems sloppy to me. They couldn't find some other way to do it, or was that done purposely?

And amazing shots IndiansUnite, that's one of the most comprehensive updates we've had in awhile! Much appreciated, there are some beauties right there. You were sure busy...and it looks like they are equally busy on the site. Thanks for the pictures!

Cheers Onn.

For the past month, I've seen ground zero and the other u/c buildings in downtown pretty much every weekday. I didn't take any pictures coz some days I was busy with work while on others I was too lazy to take my camera along. I finally decided to shed the lethargy and treat you guys.

I'll take and post new pics next week.

Good, I look forward to that. Particularly watching 4WTC rise, it’s been the fastest project on the site. Thery're supposed to be working on ground level soon. Thanks for all the updates again, they look great.
