Let me know if anybody needs more proof, I'll be happy to provide.
As of now though:
The website is american.
The official language of the main website (the international section) is English:
Therefore post in English, or a Mod has every right to delete your comment (and will hopefully do so).
Any more questions?

Hope this OT can finish now because it has seriously passed the level of decency...

A question ...

I hope this isn't a silly question. It may have been answered but I can't research 10,000 posts... anyway ... we all know how tall this tower will be, but compared to one of the old WTC towers, will it be thicker or "fatter", about the same thickness, or more slender?

Does anyone know?

It's 200 ft. x 200 ft. The twins were 208 ft. x 208 ft. each. However, 4 WTC is supposed to have a giant floor print, and both 2WTC and 3WTC will make up for all the lost office space.

To Zen, NYatKnight, or anyone else who might be able to answer this... Do you know what will happen with concrete pours in the coming winter months? I'm thinking mainly of the core. It seems like they will only be able to build the steel in the core up so high before they have to encase it in concrete. Will they have to stop once the steel reaches a certain height until spring comes around and they can continue pouring the core, or will they use those big warmer "blankets" to be able to pour throughout winter?

Also, any idea when we'll see them start to pour the concrete for the blast wall around the base?

As thick as that core concrete is and as much heat as it will generate I doubt if keeping it warm after the pour will be an issue. The big thing would probably be keeping it from getting too cold while transporting and pouring it. The contractor better make sure the trucks are up to snuff before they run the NYPD gauntlet.

Those cranes are just too aesthetic against the backdrop.
