2 more beams? Where? I didn't notice anything at all happening at 1WTC today. Although there was some progress in the dismantling of the temporary path hub's roof (the part over the actual tracks).

And yeah, huge thanks for the pics.

Superb photo update!

Also, the Port Authority will be presenting its Quarterly Construction update tomorrow night at a community board meeting. So it should be published online very soon.

Hi Guys, I have been following this thread for so long, it is cool to see updates and to get new info about the WTC rebuilding process... I have been following everything about the WTC since 2000, the year I was lucky enough to visit the observatory of the former Twin Towers. Of course I have visited Ground Zero each time I've been to NYC...

I have pictures of each time I've been there but I'd specially like to share ones of my two last visits this year since now we can see a lot of progress...

Well... the following ones are taken on July 11th 2009



Look at the base in the following image



The next one was taken on October 11th 2009, exactly 3 months later... see the difference...???



And the next ones from different sides also from October 11th 2009...







I know, not only to me but to many people after so long it's just so cool to see this kind of progress...

It's okay, post anything you got. They look fine, and clearly show the progress made in the last three months! A LOT has clearly been done! Those should put any and all doubts to rest.

Thank you!

Some new progress elsewhere on the site that I noticed on the EarthCam:
[img]http://i33.************/1zpij55.jpg[/img]
They're starting to build out the South Pool of the memorial, at least to the PATH tracks.

[img]http://i33.************/30iidxv.jpg[/img]
They've started back up again demolishing the roof of the temporary transit hub pavilion.

I'm not sure if this question has been asked and answered before in this thread, but I was just curious...

Is there a specific reason that the tower will be two floors shorter than the previous World Trade Center towers? I've always wondered why that was.

The roof height is the same as the South Tower (1362 ft) and the parapet is the same as the North Tower (1368 ft). It doesn't actually have 108 "floors"; the first office floor that is on top of the base we are seeing built right now is the 20th floor. Then you have another set of mechanical floors near the top - I'm not sure how those and the observation deck and restaurant floors figure into the count.

But that's only part of the answer. The other part is that buildings today are built with higher ceilings than the original twin towers were.

Ah, I see. Thank you for answering my question.

Was in NYC this weekend. Walked around WTC 1 on Sunday. All I've got to say is, "this thing is enormous." The super beams are astounding. No need to defend the construction anymore. As far as I am concerned, it is a skyscraper now.
