Most holidays there is no work done.

Also, started reading the PA's latest report, here's a quote,

"...These columns are critical to have in place in order for 1WTC to reach the 20th floor-equivalent level during the first quarter of next year..."

The new complex needs the other towers (2/3) built in order to fill the void left by the twins, tower 1 will not be adequate enough. As much as I like tower 4 it still does not bridge the gap left. Towers 2 and 3 have the best designs, what a waste if they are downsized.

*It seems construction has picked up a notch on tower 1 though.

Hey, hey, no need to get offended by the pace of the construction. Now that it started for real, it's gonna be completed in due time, which will not be too slow. I ensure you, from an American mind-set. Yes, it took a while to actually start building this thing, but it will not be "too slow" as this thing gets completed.

If you want to understand the meaning of "slow", look at North Korea's Pyongyang building. This building would have broken so many records (square footage, etc..) but it still has not yet been completed to date!

Downsized? Hmm, I do not think so.. I think those buildings are tall enough in that they would still stand out and look great in downtown!

When did anyone say the other towers would be downsized? That's news to me, and I check this forum more than once a day.

Quote:
•Steel Erection Complete – 20th Floor
By the 1st Quarter of 2010, steel erection should reach the 20th floor level. It is at this level – above the reinforced base of 1WTC – that the construction of the typical floor sections begin.

•West Street – Water, Sewer and Fire Services Complete
These represent the connection of major utility services to One World Trade Center, which will provide the building with domestic water, water for the sprinkler system, and connection to the City’s sewer system.

•Concrete Core & Slabs Complete – 3rd Floor
The Concrete Contractor will complete this core work, having waited for the Steel Contractor to advance work enough to create an appropriate lag. The concrete core and slab placement for the 3rd floor will occur once the steel installation is sufficiently ahead in order to ensure uninterrupted work.

wow what an amazing project! The base of this tower is so intricate I cant wait to see it in person once its done. Too bad 2 and 3 are on hold though; it would be crazy to multiple supertalls being constructed in lower Manhattan at the same time.

keep in mind this scraper has to be one of the safest in the world, the foundation and base is a very important part!

I think it'll take longer than that (there's still a lot of steel yet to go in on the west street side). Maybe by the end of the month.

yes it will, i have no doubt in that. Weather should stay pretty nice except late Wednesday/Thursday ( windy gusts up to 21mph, we can expect nothing to get done that day)
