Well I am looking at it now, and the arm is fully extended over the "north" core, so yes people they are pouring the north core as we speak .

Sounds good, I guess we'll see for sure tomorrow. This pour will probably take them a couple of days.

On the part of the memorial that they have poured concrete over near the south memorial pool, it looks like they are re-laying rebar over the concrete layer. It looks kind of like a checkerboard pattern. Any idea what this is for?

They probably just laid a preliminary floor the first time. I believe planters for trees are going where the squares are. At least, the renders seem to point to this:


The ones they already did near the Freedom Tower look about the same size as the squares they are laying out now.

They like to do the big pours late at night, it seems.

I count five. Three in the back and at least two on the right. More in the latest webcam shot.

Looks like their pouring the NW basement floors in that last shot. I can't wait to see it in the morning.

That angle is looking due south from the survivors stairs (which are just to the right of the camera), down the long corridor between the south tower and the mechanical rooms to the right. The South Tower footprint is to the left of the pic. The thing that kinda looks like the Deutsche Bank Building is the temporary service elevator which you can see on the webcams.

Actually in that picture, you can see two concrete pumps, one that is directly pumping over the north core and the other, well that one is a mystery as to what it was working on.

July 16

There was a lot of drilling activity taking place on the northwest side of the building. They've removed many nettings on the north side that used to block the view. While passing by the site, a brit couple asked me how to get inside ground zero.

Oh dear...if only they were giving tours of the construction. You should have told them to come back when Harry is king.

Haha, reminds me of a similar experience on my trip earlier this month. It was my first time in the city but I knew my way around and what do you know, a few blocks away from the site a guy with a Jersey accent asks ME where Ground Zero is. I'm from North Dakota but apparently I look like a hardened veteran New Yorker.

They finally took the boom off of the crawler crane operating in the memorial pit, and it looks like there is steel waiting on Vesey Street. My guess is that it's for the north core crane jump. I wish they were perimeter columns.

They are making progress on removing the area blocking the tower.

Sorry to come back to the steel skeleton on top of the core, but I have another question.

In a high-security tower over here that will serve as diamonds exchange and trading center, inclusive of vaults for storing the stones, they used the same encasing of beams on the pillars for the lower part of the tower.

Will this be the case here as well, meaning they will encase the steel beams into the core only for the lower 100' that serves as the security shell and above that it will be a conventional reinforced concrete core?
