Really though, who runs that site/camera? Surely they can't be so oblivious to the position of their camera
Looks like they are moving out of that office:

That message has been there for months, long before the cam was pointing at the sky.

More from today, 8-6-09,





Here's a shot of some columns that I'm not sure where they'll be going. Maybe in the underground pass between the WFC and WTC. Or they could be lamp posts for all I know. But very cool looking.

Maybe the time had finally come. :-)

In any event, the site isn't getting the attention it used to since the pic of the week is from April.

Those definitely look like a lamp columns. Sure seems like it's off or early in the project to even be thinking about those though? Probably just another port authority planning problem. They were ordered to be there when the building was completed and nobody forgot to delay the order when the building fell so far behind.

I saw those lampposts about a month ago. They have the overhanging portions of the lampposts near the column portions. A little early for them to be there! lol

Old rendering is old, but awesome.

Hopefully the facade on it will look even better than 7WTC's facade when it's all erected.

By the way, it seems like you can currently see part of the bottom half of the new crane on the HD cam.

Is Manhattan's new building going to be constructed near where the twin towers used to be?

I'm thinking that old rendering is the best one we have for now. With towers 2 and 3 probably not being completed with in the next half decade. Lets hope for a miracle with the whole silverstein/pa war.

I was in New York a couple of weeks ago and visited the WTC site.
What suprised me was that the traffic was guided by people not traffic lights.
The site itself is really moving forward, especially when you compare it to pictures from last year.
I wunder how ground zero will look like in 2010...

I've just sent a question to the PA asking when the first above grade floor will be poured.

New crane being prepared:

If you compare it to yesterday, then sure. And yeah, it's slow compared to places like Dubai- Dubai isn't one of the densest urban areas in the world, and to my knowledge, the sites don't stand over a very important PATH route, subway route, and last I checked, no buildings in Dubai were being built on a site of the worst terrorist attack in the UAE's history.

You obviously have no idea what you're talking about, considering a year ago the south core was half the height it was WITHOUT the steel, and the north core didn't even exist.

There's my angry rant for the day. Anyway, thanks for the update, Ebola. The site's pace is really picking up.
