At least some progress is made!

I hope it is ready (the tower) not the hole WTC site on 11/09/2011, you now what i mean...

I think at this rate the completion date for WTC (all the towers and memorial) is 2013 hopefully end 2012.

From Downtown Express, our first real ideal of what the inside of the lobby will look like, unbelievable...

It's absolutely massive! I grossly underestimated just how much concrete work there was to do in the lobby and ground floor in general... wow. Considering the slow start, the progress is actually impressive. So much is being done simultaneously, that construction site must be like a beehive!

It's a hoist tower just like the one on the west side.

IMO, one has to visit the site to realise HOW big it is! I was overwhelmed by the size.

Basically. The original towers were 207'8" by 207'8". The new 1WTC is 205' by 205'.

I think it might even be a little wider much is the same because it gets narrower at the base

By GreenwichBoy, WNY, 7-22-10. 29th and 30th floors must have been the fastest yet.





These next floors (31-32) should make it about 350 feet tall. Awesome!

Wow that inside view of the lobby looks amazing, I didn’t think it was that big. You guys are certainly getting one mother of a tower.

P.S. Great models Skyscapers144 .

What will the nighttime lighting of this tower look like? The ESB has nice, changeable effects, so it would make sense if 1WTC did too. I'm not suggesting anything wild, but here's a new tower in Charlotte NC that blows my mind. I think you will either love it or hate it:

The lobby is going to be exclusively exceptional when completed.
