I don't see any change in the 2WTC site. All the digging has been completed already so if they were really to start moving on the site you'd see drilling/piling.

They're just clearing out the remaining portion of the old H&M station/temporary PATH hub, as well as soil from underneath the PATH "1 box".

Um, that the No. 1 Line's subway train box, and it's owned and operated by MTA. I must say, at least the city's transit system has a say on the progress at the World Trade Center as well.

Hi!

Does anybody know anything about the rather distant building with many bright lights? Is it new Goldman Sachs tower?

Sincerely yours,

Pavel Rezvushkin

Looks like that square base will have floorplates and the first floor will have a high ceiling just like the original twin towers. But I have no idea what floor constructio is on, it is unknown when it reaches Floor 20 (the first office floor).

Guys, just imagine how great it would be to work in this building. "I'm working in the Freedom Tower", "my workplace is the Freedom Tower" - how it sounds, huh?
