Anyway, awesome to see the north core crane jump. Looks like we'll be seeing some steel go up pretty soon.
Yeah sorry, but i just really dont see big change on the construction site.
As far as i know groundbreaking was in April 27, 2006 (Wiki) so 3 years.

Belive me i will be the most happy if i see this tower rise to the sky!

Its not a easy thing tio built a tower with 108 floors @venom from the scratch, knewing the history of the area, the world crisis etc. Instead there are a lot of progress since the date you said, until today.

It isn't even really that slow, though. Compared to projects in Dubai and China, it is, but neither has as dense of an area as New York, not too mention the scale of the project/the site. It's not every day that you build a supertall replacing two destroyed by terrorists. And yeah, I understand what you mean. Plenty of people are probably a bit impatient to see this thing make an impression on the skyline. By this point next year we'll see it skyward.

If I am not mistaken the first section of the north core "cage" is being assembled right now on top of the temporary platform, hopefully to be lifted in place before the day is over!

At this pace, the first NE jumbo columns could arrive in a matter of weeks!

Thanks, I just wanted to post the same answer.

@iamtal
You have a very good eye! It really looks like they are assembling the steel cage!

Does anyone know how long it took for the south cores steel to be assembled?

and the north-crane already jumped up several floors!

I'm sure there are finishing pieces and paint that still have to go up. Don't worry, Calatrava does not disappoint.

It reminds me of the first section of south core steel that went up in January, but I'm not sure yet.

The site is still being cleared of debris and old underground structures, so the progress is not slow. There have also been many other utilities and train lines that have been built here since the site has been partially cleared. Now that those projects are mostly finished the towers will move ahead at about a floor a week. If they had not built the foundations as tough as they did to improve the safety of the building; the WTC would be up higher already. It will be worth the wait for the safety of our citizens.
