Just walked to the conference room so I could take some time to observe whats being worked on today. It seems to me that there are at least 50 people on the Freedom Tower this morning, the most ive seen in the two weeks I've been working at liberty plaza. I however haven't been able to locate the large truck load of steel people have been referring to. There is a lot of action going on bringing this whole project to ground level, and maybe even closing off the southernmost void. Any info people want from above?

Someone said yesterday that all of the concrete for the lobby of 4WTC is now fully poured. Can you confirm this? It's impossible to tell from the webcam since it's pointed mainly at the memorial and 1WTC and only one little corner of 4WTC is in the frame.

Also, would you mind taking some pics of the site please??? You should have a perfect view of 4WTC from that building (i'm hugely jealous, btw).

Wow they added quite a lot of steel around the core today. Floors 2-5 seem to be about 60-70% completed!

I can confirm that the lobby of 4WTC is fully poured.

I have a question, i have been searching for a thread for the 123 Washington St. project and finally found a thread and noticed it was archived. I have been watching the construction for sometime now and it seems that the is nobody at all onsite working. The construction elevators are not moving and the top 5 floors have sat unclad for 2 weeks now. Anyone have some updates for me?

bbtran and westmc, you're probably both new here so I'll cut you some slack, but those are just pictures from hours ago on the webcam, which most of us here already watch very frequently.

Some new pics from the museum. This is the ramp that leads from the visitor center (pavillion) on an incline westward all the way to the overhang above the "great hall", then it circles all the way back eastward to the Survivor's Staircase...



The coolest part of the museum, in my opinion, is going to be the area around the footprints of the towers, like to the right in this pic (not my pic). Also, there's about 4 inches of concrete from the lowest basement level of the original Twin Towers under those plywood boards. So it's not just the steel column foundations that are going to be visible, but the original concrete around them as well.

So the thread should be clogged up with image caps because some of us can't be bothered to bookmark the EarthCam? Seriously, here's a link to it: http://www.national911memorial.org/s...Visit_EarthCam Bookmark it. See what bbtran, westmc and the rest of us get to see 24/7.

I thought he was being very polite. No need for the caustic sarcasm.
