This would have been the best outcome. It'd shut him up AND make him happy.

All you've done on here is complain about how slow the project is, and how nothing has changed in nine months. So how about some evidence, yes?



Nine months to the day.



Yeah, I don't see any change either.

I don't care where you're from, you try having a sixteen acre complex completely destroyed, dug up, and rebuilt ALL while being over a subway and a PATH station with political bullcrap and unions spewed all over it and expect a project to skyrocket.

It's actually called One World Trade Center. And congratulations, you've shown how clueless and ignorant you really are. Enjoy.

Is that all you've got to show for nine months work. Look around at the rest of the world and see projects just as big go up 50 or 60 floors in that time. You lazy bastards I rest my case.

Way to shit on the graves of 3,000 people. Care to take this any further?

If political discussion is off limits elsewhere (Ryugyong thread) I'd like to see the same here.

Lazy like your quoting? Your case sucks, and you're only further proving your ignorance. And do those projects happen to be in one of the densest areas in the WORLD? And was the project a result of a terrorist attack destroying what was originally there?

You're an idiot. Stop trying.

Agreed. Gut feeling is that if this debate on the project speed continues, the thread's going to get locked. Might as well end here.

Anywho, anyone know when the northwest corner is supposed to get its perimeter columns?

Where would you be speaking about... Dubai... where they build in the desert with nothing around them and pay people pennies... aka making them near slaves? Sure then things get built.

Or in China where they just have the mentality to get it up and get it up now? Things don't always work the same here in the US, too much public input, government slowing things down.

Not to mention they are building in a city with residents nearby and can't build all the time, and with working subways going through the sight, so they can't be lifting steel always.

It's growing, just be patient, once the base is complete, which it should be soon enough, things will pick up. Until then, go to other threads, check other places, come back in a couple years.

err yes... idiot. NY is not the only densely built up area in the world. And who cares if there was a terroist attack, we are talking about just the construction, not the clean up. That was finished long ago. And the difference between those two photos, if you think that represents a lot of work then you are stupid - even for an American

Its easy to build a lot of stories, once you are at office levels. But the foundation is always slow, and even slower the more complex it is. Add a bunch of idiots to the management and you have your reasons. And besides all that stuff you forget, that the memorial did not exist 9 months ago, you remember the ramp? Look whats there now! They are primarily focusing on getting the museum done, and all significant progress on 1 WTC have been made within the last 4 months, NOT 9 months! The project is as fast as any other tower in the world at the moment. And I want to see your face, when you will come back here in a year and 30 or 40 stories are really done... But I hope you get banned for your comments before.

This is the most intelligent answer i have heard in a long time. just for the record this building will look awsome when it's eventually finished and I am a fan of it. I just got a bit impatient with the lack of visable progress so lets drop this argument.

All right, biting my tongue on this one. But for the record, it was never mentioned if I was American or not. I could in fact be from another country living in New Jersey for a New York commute.

Added them to the ignore list and reported them. Not much else to do.

Apparently a column or two went up today. That should leave three.

I miss the high def earthcam more than I thought I would.

Dang, it's right out of the reach of rebuildgroundzero cam. >_<

And you wouldn't be able to see the columns from the earthcam, I thought? Unless it's a few beams for the mechanical floor above.
