They could put up the remaining 21 in 24 hours, if motivated. Looks like a simple operation to me, but what do I know about construction.

hasn't anyone learned not to get too excited at what seems to be
a milestone? remember when the first columns were put up? everyone
thought it was going north, full steam ahead at that point....we all should
know better by now.

The twin towers didn't.

And progress HAS skyrocketed in the past week, so I think we have a good reason to assume it's going to go faster from here.

I think we still have to wait for the steel to be erected over the north core and the floor on the west side plaza for all the perimeter columns to be installed. Anyone who thought they'd put up 24 columns in 24 days hasn't been following the construction of this tower much over the last few years.

It's come this far in a very long time, and it'll be several more years to finish. Best thing to do is just sit back and watch.

I think it would be cool if it had design like the Empire State Building let alone lighting events. The best thing for lower Manhattan is that it will take a few years for this thing to be finished. I mean design wise the Libeskind design was far superior, hell I'd prefer the Foster building to be the centerpiece tower over the boring Childs tower thing.

Every 3 months I visit this topic hoping to see some change. Every 3 months I get disappointed...

I would love to visit NYC, once this building is complete. Yet, looking at the progress I do not think it would be soon. Perhaps in 2011.

Please I mean no harm, but it is almost un-American that this is taking so long to make.

You are blind! You would not even see progress at the sky tree with this attitude.

That's because all you're looking for is changes in height. In the last few months the entire site has more or less been brought to street level, and in the last week they've started putting up the jumbo perimeter columns. Pay more attention.
