Someone needs to get down there and take new pictures, we don't really have any good angles of what's going on.

I caught the huge spandrel beam between the SW and SE corners on RBZ's webcam. Very cool! Just imagine all our excitement in a couple years when the glass installation starts.

PA released a small schedule report stating that all the lower perimeter columns should be installed by mid-November. Which sounds about right, since their will be days when they focus on the actual floors instead of columns. Also the east bathtub will have a 15-story tall crane (bigger than the 18000) installed after the demolition of the old H&M station is complete. Things are starting to really move!

You won't have to wait years for the glass. It's supposed to start going on a year from now according to the PA schedule.

You're right, I was thinking late 2011. Other than the embarressing delays with the Deutsche Bank Building demo they've held pretty close to that schedule.

I'll save the next dumb ass some typing and post one for them,

"How can the US take Soooo long to makes 1 skyscraper when
Bangladesh can build abouts 20 floors per weeks , also why do
youse use a big red crane in Bangladesh they use ropes, oxen,
and wood to build a better than USA type skyscraper,
PS, why are there no people in the web cam photos of the construction
do youse use robotics to maks such large tall building...Tooo Slooow!."


Any other forums this full of nonsense? or is it just the WTC that gets
all the wackos? I thought I was going to get some insight & learn about
tall buildings on here....You have to sift through a bucket of crap to find
a small glimer of usefull info on here, WHERE THE HELL ARE THE MODERATORS? Sheesh!
O, so to comment you have to type English correctly because it is the only language in the world right???

No se puede esperar nada menos de un gringo.

English is used in this section because it's in the international forums. Don't be so disrespectful to other members. Comments like those have no place here.

Yeah thats why i type in english. And wow sorry that i cant type it total correctly, you know its not my mother language. I dont wanna use hungarian or german as nobody would understand it here. Sorry if im on a different opinion about 9/11 then you. Wich "track" i meant that all planes have a route and if one is getting off that the central is asking the pilot "what happend etc" if they cant get connection to the jet they may sent jets to check whats wrong. This actually didnt happend for more minutes (or hours?) and lots of people so do i dont belive that the whole disaster couldnt been avoided!

The whole point is that this thread is about the construction of 1WTC, it's not the place to discuss what happened on 9/11.


Thanks to all the updaters for the pictures, keep up the good work.

On the rebuildgroundzero webcam it can be spotted that the large horizontal beam that connects the eastern and western steel columns on the south side has already been placed. Seems like the pace will speed up now that the second crane is in action!

Awesome process!!!

What is the current status on WTC 2 and 3? Last time I heard that they didn't make an agreement yet. I hope they finally reach an agreement and start construction soon.
