Yeah, that's nice and all, but installation of the jumbo columns is supposed to start today.

The beam is longer than long cat. I'm pretty sure it's the first beam that's 100% above grade, a great milestone.

These new jumbo beams weigh over 2300 pounds per running foot!

"Each column weighs approximately 70 tons and each is approximately 60 foot long" - from Port Authority press release yesterday.

From the Winnipeg Free Press, top story/picture.

"A 70-ton perimeter column for One World Trade Center is lowered into place at Ground Zero in New York City today. The jumbo column is the first that rises above street level and will allow workers to start constructing the floors of the tower."

They put some kind of beam/access walkway next to the top of the jumbo column. Maybe for stabilization?

Also, more concrete got poured on the southern side of the memorial, in the middle where there is a big gap in the steel.

Those are work platforms for the Ironworkers. It's gona take some time to put the 200+ bolts in those connections. They may also be welded.

Coming back from vacation to this really makes the re-entry less painful !

You mean somebody isn't tossing hot rivets into a bucket?
I need to get out more often.

Obviously, you didn't pay attention to what happening to Ground Zero on this thread in the past year.

1. Freedom Tower core already raised but stopped for now. One of two cranes got jumped. They just started to install jumbo columns now. After that, the rest of Freedom Tower will rise.

2. The foundation on Ground Zero is processed a lot in the past year including WTC memorial site, retail center, and transportation hub. Almost all of them are raising to street level.

3. WTC 4 foundation is almost completed and starting to rise now.

4. There is nothing going on WTC 2 and 3 yet due to political issues.

@Basel_CH
Dont forget the north core jumped 3 or 4 stories during the last year! Most of them in the last few months!

The lower levels have been poured. And the Plaza level around the tower has been nearly fully poured, too. Just look at the brown circle, below the crane, which is a tree planter.

Vesey street has been dismantled and so on...

The memorial and tower 4 have made even greater progress. The memorial and tower 4 simply did not exist one year ago!

Progress is everywhere, you are just unable to remember what it looked like one year ago, because you dont pay much attention to this project.
