No the foundation work progresses at a normal speed. When do people start to understand that building a foundation takes time, esspecially in downtown New York on a historic site. To show you the progress I've three pictures for you, one of 1 year ago, one of Oktober last year and one of yesterday.
Last year they started to drill the caisons for the foundation. Nowadays this work is finnished and they even poured the foudation of the tower.







I'll hope that you and the others who are complaining now see that they ARE making progress.

Please don't ask me where I heard of that, but could it be true, that NY decreed a height limit for skyscrapers in New York after 9/11, excluding the WTC?

Yes, i can see great progress. Of course a foundation phase takes so much time. Then, it will grow up fast !
Nice updates !

I'm imagining this is a huge and complex site so I would be afraid if the foundation went any quicker. I can't wait to see it above the ground though.

Information you could find out easily and no that is not true. Height is determined by zoning and FAR's.

But the height limit is still 2000 ft -- is this correct?

Yeah it's true. People need to realise this.

Here in London for example, we have several large sites that are being prepared for skyscrapers and it takes 2-3 years in some cases. You have to demolish, then excavate the sites, then do test piling and other work, then build the foundations and basements before you can even think about the tower itself.

There are sometimes complications, or unexpected discoveries below ground level, but this doesn't mean a project is cancelled - just delayed.

It isn't going to rise anytime this year, but the transit hub seems to be going fast.

So, is the remnant of the former parking structure going to remain within the sublevels of 1WTC or are they postponing dismantling it? It'll be a shame to see it go.

I think it will stay there. however it will be interesting to see what they'll do with the foundation there. I don't think the remnant is designed to support the wall of the FT. well we'll see
