From those photos seems that north core is almost in the same height, with the south? The concrete part

I fail to see the reasoning behind being upset at the timing of this project. Do none of you remember how many people died at this site?

And about having balls to build all the WTC site? That was a ridiculous statement. It's got nothing to do with balls or NYC. Financiers, developers, architects, construction companies....now there's a few folks that might have had a hand in the schedule....Jesus people, think before you post!

That's what many of US do, i've been to NYC 3 times, this being the 3, and i don´t bother any more to go to the WTC site, for what, i better come back in 2020 or something to se this tower finished.

2013, 1WTC is perfectly on schedule compared to other projects of its size. Don't forget that. In Asia many of the skyscrapers that are the same scale as this one started construction in the 1990s. This one started in 2007, so 2013 sounds about right to me. That would be the same amount of time spent on the Hong Kong International Finance Center, which is almost the same height to roof.

no, the freedom tower will be finished by 2013 / 2014. but the whole WTC site will take much longer (especially 2 and 2 WTC, they are not even u/c).

If you guys keep moaning on how long this one is taking we will probably have a thread of a 2020 or 2050 pages by the time the FT is finished.. if you can't bear with the time the whole complex requires to be completed just walk by and keep the conversation clean of unneccesary posts.. we have already explained what the site has gone through and as well informed people keep saying about 7 years span for building the complex are normal I suppose there's nothing more to say about that.
We don't need to cram this pages with unconstructive criticism so please stay on topic.

Thanks,
Jack

You all must remember, that the originals weren't built in a day either. It took a good 7 or 8 years or more for them to be completed. From the bottom bones to the rooftops.

Yeah I know, I meant raising the forms for the next pour. The concrete is still drying from the prior concrete pour. They are raising the forms to the next level...

Only if they stick to the plan, but i have the feeling, they wont do that, like in the old towers...


BTW: Great to see the formworks of north and southcore on the same level!!! Now it wont take long, until the steel structure of the north core goes up! Maybe this will happen within the next month.

Paterson to Negotiate Personally With Silverstein
By Charles V. Bagli
July 20, 2009

Gov. David A. Paterson announced on Monday afternoon that he would negotiate personally with Larry A. Silverstein, the developer, in an attempt to resolve the long-running deadlock at ground zero over the construction of office towers on the 16-acre site.

Although his administration had been involved in prior unsuccessful efforts to resolve the dispute, Mr. Paterson said he had been distracted until now by the battling in the State Senate between Democrats and Republicans. He said he met with Mr. Silverstein on Monday morning and they agreed to continue discussions about a possible settlement, postponing, at least for now, binding arbitration.

Mr. Silverstein has insisted that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey finance two of the three office towers he is to build along Church Street. But both the governor and the authority have been reluctant to finance more speculative office space at a time when rents are declining and tenants are scarce.

The governor said that he could not say that two sides were “any closer” today, but he and Mr. Silverstein agreed that binding arbitration was “an unlimited waste of time” in which both sides would be at each other’s throats.

Mr. Paterson said that Mr. Silverstein had taken on little financial risk while adopting a “build it and they will come” approach to development, which had proven wrong in the past.

Mr. Silverstein issued a statement saying he looked forward “to continuing these discussions.”

Stephen Sigmund, spokesman for the Port Authority, said: “We appreciate Governor Paterson’s leadership and agree with his principled position on protecting public resources. In the meantime, the Port Authority will continue to make daily and visible progress on the Memorial, One World Trade Center, the Transportation Hub and the other public infrastructure.”

They have to stick to the plan, the contracts are signed. The Twin Towers fell victim to the asbestos problem !

It's called Erecting Steel, and there is but One Core!!! Although it apears to be two halfs.


(yea, I was a bit rude)

Do you have any personal problem with me, or what is the reason for correcting me like this? I am calling it north and south core like anybody else in this thread, so why do you complain about it?

And sorry about not knowing the word erecting steel, because i wasnt born in your god damn country...
