small update:
They're placing formwork around the bottom parts of the big steel beams and filling them with concrete. not really spectacular, but the beams seem to have a purpose now instead of being eye candies

one thing i dont understand is why they had to build a spire to hit 1776ft. they should have made the roof hight this high.

I always felt it would be perfect with a roof height of 1776 and a spire height of 2001. Although i must admit the FT is a much better design then the previous ones that were only 60 storys with 500 feet of glass on top.

I perfectly agree. The spire height might be 2011 or 2012, though (the year when the tower is ready).

From 1368 to 1776 feet, something like the top of the ESB could be made, and then, from 1776 to 2001+, a large spire like in the current project.
Every tower in the world is cheating like that at this time, so I can't see why FT should not!

If this building is supposed to be above grade by January, it should start rising very soon.

Apparently the tower is no longer being referred to as the Freedom Tower, but instead as 1WTC. Not a bad thing IMO
