^ It is. If I recall the infrastructure in question is a water main pipe that would originate from the Deutche Bank site as well as other elements involving the vehicle security center.

60fl / year = 1,15fl / week

i dont think they will construct it with dubai / chinese speed...40fl are much more realistic...

Did anyone see the Macy's parade? The Big Apple float had a model of the Freedom Tower on it. Don't remember seeing that before this year. Before 9/11, I think the same float had the twins on the same spot.

I can understand that the utility hookups won't be completed, but it seems like they could build the building without them; if they complete the internal electric and plumbing work, why wouldn't they just be able to connect them later?

A while back(lots of pages actually) someone asked the question, how do you wash the windows on the sides on the WTC that point to the corners on the roof. well I came across this picture on wikipedia it kind off shows one possible solution used on the sanghai WFC. I just thought about it when I saw this picture hehe

They had it last year. Whoa, since 2005 apparently.



Zen has posted information about the window washing equipment.

That look like the old towers!
(I know it's the freedom tower, I've seen it myself)

But take a look, the floor (storie) is very similair to the old ones.
Also at the facade, it looks like the old WTC tower base!

@ luci 203

you are right its possible but i think this one gets built by another technique.
the West Tower was an ultrafast supertall and 1WTC will be never ultrafast.
that would be very nice but its just not realistic..

NEW YORK yes, DUBAI no

Dubaï's gonna put the whole world in the sh..

Stop showing off Dubaï,your city will never overtake New York(that's their goal).Dubaï's projects are huge and great I agree,but the city in itself is 100% SUPERFICIAL,has NO HISTORY,NO SOUL,only built thanks the their oil,from A to Z...To me Dubaï is not worth it at all,I'll boycott it,it does not make me dream at all.

I look 4ward to going to New York for the 1st time,hopefully in a couple of years...

I love New York,I love London.

For some reason I had a dream last night that this was about 20 floors up and everyone was shocked at how quickly it had increased in height
