Exactly! I hope that all these projects that were downsized or put on hold or are making really slow progress can start up again, and more supertall proposals, such as the Chicago Spire, Signature Tower Nashville, etc.

i've been to more times to see this massive dissapointment, all i want is to know the true cause of the slow progress, no more lies, why is the building taking so long.
Where did you dug out that quote? No one is interested in your comments. Look at the pics and be quiet.

Pardon my ignorance, but can someone tell me why there is no activity to the south of 4WTC? On the left of that picture?

That's where 2 and 3WTC will be built, and they're both on hold for the time being.

Just looking at the whole site overall you can really see a lot of progress made over the last twelve months. 1WTC filling out, the memorial pools taking shape, the last steel in the SW corner, formworks going up on 4WTC, Deutsche building demo resuming.

The only shame is it took so long for it to happen. 2003-2006 were lost years.

The only activity south of 4WTC is people eating at a Chinese restaurant, a Burger King and a pizza place. That isn't a construction zone.

Comparing construction timelines in Dubai and NYC is obviously pretty pointless - Dubai is essentially a planning dictatorship with the heavy construction conducted by a "slave" labour force paid peanuts while NYC is subject to the normal planning and construction rules which apply in democratic, open and modern societies.

1 WTC is clearly getting there. It's a difficult site and the building design is very complex. Once they get the tricky base constructed, it will climb very quickly. The workers are doing a great job.

Burj Dubai, like 1 WTC is a complex engineering project that just wasn't hung up in years of bickering between all the different entities involved, not to mention litigation with insurance companies and redesigns. if you factor out all the noise, both developments will have taken roughly the same time to construct.

Who are you to say that? What wrong with him posting his comments? You can say anything you want about this building. All of you get so defensive if anybody even hints that this might be slow.

Yeah, this building is slow, but did you bother to read the schedule for each phase of this building? If you pay attention to this thread, you would realize that nothing photographically pleasing was going to happen just because we want it to go faster.Things are picking up now, but I believe that when the base is done, this will move as fast as beekman or any other NY project! Things are going the way they said, just wait!

if u flick through this 'short' report, many things have been completed. seems to me that most people (including me in the beginning) are not aware how complex this construction actually is! of course the PA made (and still doing) many mistakes in the past few years and of course the construction is incredibly slow BUT at least there is progress.
