Excavation for Ground Zero Office Towers Is Finished
By Charles V. Bagli

The Port Authority has finally completed the excavation at ground zero for
three office towers, after 14 months of delays and $130 million in
penalties.The authority officially turned over the last of the three sites
Monday to the developer Larry A. Silverstein, saying that Mr. Silverstein
now had until 2014 to build the towers.

Under a 2006 development agreement, the authority was to have finished
the excavation work in June 2008. But only one of the sites was finished in
time. As a result, the authority had to pay a penalty of $300,000 a day until
it finished the work. The penalty actually served as an abatement against Mr.
Silverstein’s rent.

No steel on 1WTC today, but there was a steel beam going in at the memorial. It's one from the original twin towers that was marked by emergency personnel after 9/11 and will be part of the museum.

There was a rather large concrete pour around the north core, however. That part is one level below ground level, the underground structure has not caught up with the rest of the foundations yet. You can see the white cement where the pour happened on the webcam.

Sorry about that. Thought this forum had an auto-resize. Replaced with thumbnail instead.

The tridents are going to be above ground in the pavilion, so presumably they won't come to the site until construction of the pavilion begins. And since the pavilion is to be built over the platforms for the transportation hub, they can't proceed on that until the roof of the platforms are up.

They have to move the other big pieces now though, because soon there won't be any openings big enough to fit them through.

The steel beam that was returned...was that the one that was left standing with the flags draped over it...sort of looked like a cross...or is that another beam? If not, what happened to that beam?

Actually, there was one peace lifted up on the last beam at 1WTC, but nothing so important...

Btw. 6th beam is there...Looks like they deliver new beam every 2nd day...

Is it known for a fact that they won't be putting the north columns up until the north core erecting steel is raised, or was that just a guess? It would seem like a lot of weight to have up without the connecting beams. I know those suckers won't bend but if they ground shifted enough for the top of a column to move half an inch it might cause considerable grief.

After all that work on the strongest foundation ever, it is not going to move a millimeter.
