When you see the pics, it's apparent that a huge amount of progess has been made since the ramp was removed the first of the year. I would think ground level will look very nice by this time next year.

Yea, it is. The columns are near the exterior, but are not "the" exterior, so it's even bigger than you may think it to be.

My estimation of a completion date for the whole site is late 2015, possibly early 2016.

I had a meeting on the 22nd floor of 1 WFC overlooking ground zero and noticed the difference between the site today and how it was 1 year ago, plus the pace seems to have picked up dramatically over the last couple of months. I use the wtc PATH station on a daily and usually don't notice much progress, I guess that from street level you dont see the tower getting any taller. I can't wait for it to be done!

By the way, any updates on 2WTC? it seems to me that there has been an increase in activity there lately.

The pace has definitely picked up a lot. However, I think Silverstein and the Port Authority are still grinding through the arbitration process, so we probably won't hear anything on WTC2 or WTC3 until later this year. Any activity near WTC2 is probably just overflow from the Path hub site, I would bet.

Yes, can you please get a shot of the northern side of 1WTC's lobby/ground level? The best (really the only) way to get a shot of this is from the north pedestrian footbridge. Hold tightly onto your camera and stretch your arm THROUGH the narrow gap in the footbridge, the one overlooking the plaza. Point to the north side and snap. This is a pic I took using that "method"...

I'm sure a lot more progress has been made since then (this was Sept 5th), but I haven't seen any other members get any shots of this area since. It's also the only part of the tower's lobby level that has anything really "going on" still. So, yeah, PLEASE get a few shots of this side of the building.
