Why don't we all just bitch about the site some more? Cry me a river. If you don't like the site then don't post here. And if you can't take an argument then you shouldn't be here.

Anyways, the WTC site is looking good so far.

We seem to forget that the original World Trade Center took two and a half years to come out of the ground, and almost four years for both towers to top out,

and to address the "walking cranes" question, still working on it, however we do have cranes that "crawl".

Thanks for posting the site diagram. That clears everything up for me. Correct me if I'm wrong but is the building in the centre below grade with covered paths coming out the subway/PATH station?

Maybe this is a risky question, but has everything been worked out at this point as to why the third building collapsed on 9/11?

the oroginal WTC complex took years to complete...the desing was done by 1964.....but because of legal delays they started working in 1969 and topped the first tower in 1973!

If you don't like SSC why bother to be here just for international? Try SSA.

I like this tower, it is modern and elegant ... but in my heart I wish it would be a little taller. I understand the symbolism of 1776 (I live in Philadelphia fer goshsakes!) ... why not make it 2001 feet tall, thereby surpassing the Chicago Spire and memorializing the year the original WTC was attacked?

I am naive and not very educated when it comes to buildings and construction, but I do know that when the Empire State Building was under construction, the height was kept secret. Is there any remote chance this building might be higher than announced? Or am I stuck with a pipe-dream???

i've wondered (dreamed) about that myself. every one says its taking forever to actually rise so i wondered if it was taking so long because they are making it super strong to support more wieght than we know about.

i doubt it tho.

Remember, not only is this a massive and very complex construction site, the circumstances surrounding it are unique.
