Looks like flooring is being installed for the upper level. Sweet progress.

A year from now we can expect to see the first glass installed. Try imagining that!

Both cams are completely frozen.
Does anybody know if the 12th jumbo column along with the connector was installed or not?

There is also a great probability of SW Memorial steel installation starting this weekend, but unfortunately you can't see anything at the moment

With the view from the video cam the answer is no

I thought it was a bit hard to make it out from that view, but I think you may be right.

Also, I'm not completely sure about the memorial part, but as the PA has stated that work will start in Q3 2009, initially only during weekends, and looking at the other lo-def cam, a crane seems to have been installed on the platform put up yesterday, it might be true.

I remember watching a video of FT construction site where this worker walked across horizontal beam which was about 15m in the air and the guy had no safety rope on him. Isn;t this law breaking?

Zen also said this is apparently a Skylight, and it's going to go under the west plaza level fountain.

What Onn says is fact, straight from the prints.

Thought this might help some folks understand what's up so far.

A co do żurawia po wschodniej stronie, zostanie on tam jeszcze na długi czas gdyż zajmie się on montażem kolejnych kolumn elewacji od strony wschodniej oraz może w przyszłości rozbiórką obecnego terminala PATH.

Freedom Tower:













On the west side of the Freedom Tower is formed out of "street level" and the Lobby of the building. It was the western part of the street will soon be another crane, concrete work, therefore, have gained momentum in that area. He is currently in place already zabetonowanych platform on which a week or two of entering another crane. In around Ground Zero are slowly zwożone components of the crane. His task will be to install a load-bearing columns of the facade on the Freedom Tower as its eastern side. You can see that the work is slowly accelerating, and at a good speed-up will be ready when the whole box podbudówki proper construction of the tower. And as for the crane on the east side, it will be there for a long time because it will be editing more columns from the east elevation and may in the future demolition of the existing PATH terminal.
