HD cam is frozen (I guess literally)

So what is the plan with snow all over the site? Do they shovel, de-ice, or wait for a thaw?

Not sure about NYC but the FAA has killed or limited building heights

Not sure about NYC but the FAA has killed or limited building heights in other areas... A supertall in Las Vegas and another in Nashville if memory serves correct...

NIMBY's (Not In My Backyard) do kill many building though... Will NYC ever have a Burg Dubai type building? Who knows? La Guardia does have flight paths over Manhattan so the FAA will have a say... we shall see if a exception to the 2,000 foot rule is ever applied for...

My two cents!

BTW... back on topic... that steel sure has given Freedom Tower some personality in a short period of time!

If he came to the third floor of the Freedom Tower, the 24 permiter columbs would not withstand his weight. "Uuuuopokay" "ummm,mmmm" you could always heare strange noises coming out of his belly.

Yeah FFA kills buildings but not in NYC thats my point. Build a 2000 footer in the middle of nowhere, the FAA couldn't do shit about. Who'd do that I would to make a point. And it's like I said, name one building killed by the FAA in New York. I bet you won't find one. I'm get back on topic.

Calm down. If no one reports the posts it's hard for the mods to find out. I just read this page by coincidence. I'm on it and he will be banned.

'Where are the moderators when you need them'. I honestly think that's bullshit because I took a look in this thread 5 minutes later. If you want moderators to be faster > report posts.

Enough about this, keep it on topic.

Lighting up man you shouldn't take it personal. You took care of it that's all that matters. Today seems like a day off forever body with all this snow. Tomorrow a new day. Winds should be calmer but you never know in manhattan.

This got me thinking. Is there any rendering of the New WTC Complex with snow? I wonder how it would look like.

^? i don't quite know what you mean but one world trade centre aka freedom tower is the second building of the world trade centre to be built as the 7wtc building was already completed in 2006 i think. unless one of the smaller buildings of the world trade centre gets constructed faster than the freedom tower/1wtc it will be the second building in the complex to be built. incase you don't know but the freedom tower is part of a planned memorial for the 9/11 terrorist attacks and will be replacing the old world trade centre buildings/twin tower which were destroyed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. i hope i explained it enough

@comet the cat if it is going to open by 2012 then it should surpass the empire state building's mast by about march 2011 and then surpass the esb antenna by june-september of 2011 depending on how long it take to raise the spire


all this is very rough estimates and are all depending on the fact that this tower does not go onhold at all or for very long and that the opening date is schedueled in early 2012 some time
