Just a guess, maybe someone knows more about it?
They have people that think about these things, the 18000 is sitting just far enough away from column line A to be able to place the columns and beams. Though it well not be able to rotate a full 360 degrees once the nearest columns are erected.

Hideous? lol, I think it looks "organic" and interesting.

Seriously! I look at those green cocoons and I just want to puke. I can't stand seeing those things in Guangzhou or Shenzhen or wherever.

To each his own I guess.

No tissue needed, Im a big boy. Just that there is lots of info in these pages, if some would take the time to look. I didnt list your joke date so lets move on. Hard to follow the progress, but thanks for all to the continuing photos from the site and information!

Nice progress on the steel columns. The base seems that it will be ready by the end of next month, floors are already taking shape, all the cranes are in place I don't see slow...

After all when the first towers were build they were directly on the bank of the Hudson. Delivering steel and other materials was easy. This is not the case now.

Don't ask that question lol. These Americans get a bit touchy when people ask that - they think it's America bashing when all we wamt to know is WHY IS THIS GOING SO SLOW. Probably the slowest construction I have ever seen.

It has nothing to do with Americans. It's the constant explanations that no one (humans, global) seems to read, and try to understand:

-Cleanup
-Subways
-Politics
-Crowded area
-Unions
-Quality

Anyone wanna add to the list, again?

ok, it took a while for the construction to start but the circumstances where unique, alot of ppl died on the site. This place must now also serve the function of a memorial. They want to make sure this tower is as secure as it can get, and if you have been watching the work over the last years you'll see they've made major strides, and during the last months the tower has been shooting upwards...

No one reads or understands because none of these realy explains it. All these reasons i took into account for the 18 months it took to construct up to ground level. But then it should have started to rise quite quickly but another year has gone by and construction is still at the lobby. I know they are going for a steel frame and a core so i can imagine it taking twice as long but nothing height wise has really happened for nine months.

Nothing height wise has happened in 9 months? Are you clueless or just trolling? I was there in July and the site looks completely different now.

obviously clueless because I don't say putting up 20 odd steel girders and pouring a bit of conctrete makes the site completely different. they havent even poured the concrete for the first floor yet.
