Of course I could be wrong, and it's just more connecting beams for the current top level. We are so close to seeing significant upward progress....
You are correct. Over at wirednewyork they have pictures of the new steel for the next level of the core.

Not all the way around the tower yet though. It’s really close, but I'll stand corrected.

Freakin' awesome!

I didn't think they'd go higher until they filled out all the floors.

So did I, but you can see this more often, in other projects as well.

Very likely. There is a lot of steel laying around on the last floor ready to go out.

is there any hope at all that they will scrap this project and build the twin towers 2 ? cause they seem to still try to get it built although im afraid the current plans with the freedom tower design may have gone to far to stop already

is there a thread about donald trumps Twin Towers II proposal ? if so , please link

Very nice progress! This building has become so big since last year, its simply amazing!

Some parts of the recently added core steel was already laying around on the west plaza during last week. But I did not expect them to be put up very soon.

It would be interesting to know if they are adding steel for only 2 levels or even more? Does anyone know this?




@Huskies
The chances of the Trump proposal being built are around 0%!
Maybe he is getting a chance if WTC2 and 3 are getting cancelled completely... But WTC1 aka Freedom Tower will definitely be finished!
