Looks good, but they have a lot of work to do still. And I wonder what that large dip is for in the section they just poured? The side of another large planter, or something else....

there's a similar formation just south of the one you're talking about, across the "path" to the east entrance. so i think it's safe to assume it's a planter or something

It's hard to tell, but it looks like the cranes are moving some big steel around on the SE side of the site.

I can't tell for certain, but looks like their stock piling it just to the east/right of the north core. My guess is it'll be for the top of the north core. If memory serves, they usually wait for the weekend to erect it.

NY gov: We could build at WTC without developer

By JENNIFER PELTZ, Associated Press Writer Jennifer Peltz, Associated Press Writer – Mon Aug 3, 5:07 pm ET

NEW YORK – New York Gov. David Paterson gave World Trade Center site developer Larry Silverstein an ultimatum Monday in prolonged talks over his lease to build three planned office towers, saying ground zero rebuilding could go ahead without him if necessary.

In a letter that outlined parts of old offers of partial financing for two of the towers, Paterson pressed the two sides to meet this week to work on resolving the dispute.

But the governor said he had told the site's owner, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, to start drawing up new plans so the agency could finish rebuilding the Sept. 11 memorial and other public projects regardless whether Silverstein completes his buildings.

"This will ensure that, should you and the Port Authority not be able to reach an agreement, the site will no longer be subject to the fate of the real estate market or these negotiations," Paterson wrote.

Silverstein's camp expressed doubt that the governor's move would help, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration and state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver said it would hurt.

"From the beginning, we've said both parties would have to compromise to avoid stalemate and further delays on the site," Bloomberg spokesman Andrew Brent said. "Unfortunately, today's proposal doesn't achieve that and would move us in the wrong direction."

The agency and Silverstein have negotiated for months — with Silverstein threatening to seek arbitration and interventions from top state lawmakers and meetings convened by Bloomberg going nowhere.

Silverstein has asked the Port Authority to guarantee more than $3 billion in financing to build two of his planned towers. He has been unable to obtain private financing in the tight real estate market and has said the agency has delayed his construction schedule by falling behind on projects — including a vast, winged transit hub designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava — that surround his.

Janno Lieber, who heads trade center construction for Silverstein, echoed those complaints Monday. He said Paterson's "ideas will not likely put us on a path" to building the two towers.

The agency has agreed to back one tower currently under construction and put up some money for a second tower, but only if Silverstein comes up with more than $600 million first.

The Port Authority has said that putting up more for the private venture would siphon money from other key projects, such as improvements to LaGuardia Airport and a new rail tunnel serving Pennsylvania Station.

The towers and the agency's projects are intertwined through underground utility infrastructure, as well as a vehicle security center, train tracks and streets that would connect the office towers and the memorial.

The Port Authority didn't immediately have cost estimates or a timetable for reconfiguring the plans to disentangle its projects from Silverstein's.

"We appreciate the governor's leadership in working to reach a solution that both protects public resources and ensures the public projects keep moving forward," agency spokesman Stephen Sigmund said.

But Silver, who tried to broker an end to the stalemate more than a month ago, said he feared the governor's proposal would spur "yet another standstill at the World Trade Center site and many more years of delay."

Paterson echoed much of the Port Authority's position, though he said he deliberately avoided specific numbers to allow for negotiation. He added that he would ask the Port Authority to waive millions of dollars a month in rent on the second and third towers "until the market returns" to build them.

The governor asked both sides to meet Wednesday and give him a progress report Aug. 12.

The steel scattered around the core looks exactly like the framework steel for the north core. It seems like the north core will have steel soon. Also, according to someone from WNY, a new crane will be erected this week.

Secret report: Ground Zero Freedom Tower construction lags, slated for 2018 finish

Sounds like utter BS to me. The "secret report" is not meant to be considered as fact. They must be desperate for attention. All of the below grade and street level work will be done this year. The report also says the memorial is 2 years behind schedule; however, according to the last update on the memorial, it was way ahead of schedule, at least in terms of steel erection. It's funny how they call it "Freedom Tower" whenever there's bad news, and "1WTC" when there's good news.

Gov. Paterson has nothing on his mind except taking the easiest way out to make it seem as it was his executive leadership that ended the stalemates, at the expense of our skyscrapers. He should be ashamed of himself, but I guess all that matters is his crappy political future. Getting rid of the private developer, the only guy in the mix who has shown that he knows what he's doing, is the move of a fool; yes, give the bureaucrats total control over this project and maybe we'll see Tower 2 top out by 2058, assuming they don't decide to ditch it and build a 4-story mall, completion date est. at 2022. With Larry out of the picture, god forbid, maybe they can move the Tower 4 completion date from 2012 to 2020. The two fastest projects and the only ones on schedule are WTC Tower 4 and 7WTC; both were developed by Silverstein, so let us remove him from the project. God forbid; 7WTC finishing on schedule is enough for this mega project! Let's not get ahead of ourselves! Good job, PA, with the T3 and T2 plots. They were supposed to be ready, what, last June? And now, if we're lucky, they'll be ready next month. Thanks for nothing and screw yourselves. Silverstein Properties should have been given full control over the entire project. **** the PA, **** Paterson, and **** the bureaucrats in the middle.

Getting back to the better news, this is really exciting! The north part of the core is actually about to catch up! Last year, it felt like this moment would never come.

A mobile crane is being erected to assist with the exterior jumbo beams that are to be erected in September. The crane will sit in the southeast plaza area (where the round pit is).

I agree that it sounds like BS. The project has kept in line with the timeline set last october.
