Looks like they're pouring a second layer over the thin concrete on the memorial plaza.

Looks like the largest beams will be the horizontal ones above each entrance. I don't see any support below these large, high glass areas.

Yep, the crane is grabbing something. Someone needs to get down there and take new pictures!

Some of the slabs call for 2 pours of about 8 inches each.

That's some great news webeagle12 !

There probably will not be a "tower" 6, rather a "6WTC". And it's most likely going to be a theater or performing arts center. The last we heard Frank Gehry was tapped to design it, although that quite a long time ago. The location hasn't been determined yet either. It's either going to be on the temporary path terminal site right now (right next to the Freedom Tower, and between towers 1 and 2) or on the site of the Deutsche Bank building, which was damaged on 9/11 and is still being demolished.

As of right now, there isn't going to be a tower six.

The numbering comes from the original World Trade Center site:
  1. 1 WTC - the North Tower
  2. 2 WTC - the South Tower
  3. 3 WTC - Marriott World Trade Center
  4. 4 WTC - a low-rise office building
  5. 5 WTC - a low-rise office building that housed the Chambers Street–World Trade Center subway station
  6. 6 WTC - U.S. Customs House
  7. 7 WTC - a high-rise office builidng built by Silverstein Properties in the 1980s just outside the original WTC complex.

All seven buildings collapsed or were demolished in the immediate aftermath of the September 11 attacks. Because 7 WTC wasn't inside the "bathtub" of the rest of the WTC site, Silverstein had a much freer hand in redeveloping the site. The new 7 WTC was built at the same location as the old 7 WTC, but occupied a slightly smaller footprint. It went into construction with the same name before an overall plan had been developed for the main WTC site.

The new site plan that eventually evolved called for only four new buildings instead of the original six: three buildings along the eastern perimeter of the site, between Church Street and a reconstructed Greenwich Street, and one in the Northeast corner of the site. These would be branded as 1WTC through 4WTC.

However the mold infestation of the Deutsche Bank building, which was initially thought to be saveable after the 9/11 attacks, proved uncontainable and the building was set for demolition. Once deconstruction is completely, the site is (was?) set to be redeveloped by the PANYNJ as 5WTC for J.P. Morgan Chase.

Steel beam slated to return Monday to ground zero

Steel beam slated to return Monday to ground zero

NEW YORK — A massive steel column from the World Trade Center that became a makeshift memorial to the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks is being returned to the site.

After more than seven years in storage at a hanger at John F. Kennedy International Airport, the beam is expected to be transported Monday to ground zero.

Port Authority of New York & New Jersey Executive Director Chris Ward calls the return of the beam to the World Trade Center site a sign of rebirth.

The column will become part of the planned National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum.

The 58-ton, 36-foot-tall beam was dubbed the "Last Column" when it was the final standing steel column to be removed from the site.

It was adorned with firehouse patches, police logos and union stickers.

p.s: Union stickers WTF?

update 2 6:25am: beam is here
and also it's looks like they raised north core

update 3: HOLY BATMAN!! look at the size of that crane ( for beam)

I was kind of wondering about that "56 ton 36 foot long" beam. That seems a little heavy.
