I was hoping the

Race to pass wtc7 would have been won by 12/30. Oh well.

Also the deconstruction of old wt5 didnt make it in time either. So sad, if its still there this 9/11.

1WTC will surpass 7WTC during March, I hope so. Also, the Deconstruction of Deutsche Bank will be finishing between February and March.

Don't worry, everything is going well and on time.

World Trade Center Project Meets Construction Goals for First Time dnaInfo.com

The World Trade Center site met all 13 of the goals the Port Authority set for the third quarter of 2010.


LOWER MANHATTAN — The World Trade Center site met all 13 of its construction goals for the third quarter of 2010, the Port Authority announced Thursday.
From July through September, the Port Authority started building the 9/11 memorial plaza, erected steel for the Santiago Calatrava-designed PATH station and made substantial progress on One World Trade Center, the Port said.
The report marked the first quarter that the Port Authority has met all of its milestones since executive director Chris Ward started setting specific, public goals two years ago.
"Things are moving forward in the right direction, and that’s what we want," said Catherine McVay Hughes, chairwoman of Community Board 1’s WTC Redevelopment Committee, which has closely followed the rebuilding.

But Ward also warned of some upcoming challenges in the Dec. 30 letter to Gov. David Paterson that accompanied the report.
One of the biggest setbacks to the World Trade Center project has been the years of delays at the cursed Deutsche Bank building, where two firefighters were killed in a 2007 fire.
The building is finally down to its last couple of stories, and the Lower Manhattan Development Corp., the building’s owner, is now scheduled to turn the cleared site over to the Port Authority in the first week of February.
The project lost at least two days of work because of this week’s snowstorm but would make up the time and would not miss the February deadline, an LMDC spokesman said.
The Port needs the site of the Deutsche Bank building to build a below-ground parking garage and vehicle screening center that will serve the new office towers and the memorial.
Another project that was at risk of falling behind was the winged PATH hub, because its schedule was dependent on the many companies that would fabricate the materials and build the structure, Ward said in his letter to Paterson. To further complicate matters, the station’s infrastructure overlaps with developer Larry Silverstein’s office towers.
"We will be focused closely on each of these sets of risks," Ward said in the letter.
The third-quarter report was released as the fourth quarter was drawing to a close, but the Port Authority usually waits several months to announce which milestones have been met.

I can't wait to leave for NYC.
The snow is just like everything else there: dull and boring.

He might be talking about the great plains. But he wouldn't be out of line calling NYC boring. It can be boring here like anywhere else.

I think this building will look really cool when the aerial shots are shown after it's finished. I prefer the new 2WTC but this building should be pretty incredible as well.

As we can see in the pictures of the city skyline, something great is growing up in the NY skyline, because WTC current height makes it visible almost from each point of the city, and it's still growing. Thks to all for update pictures!

My best wishes to this baby, 2011 will be an excellent year, I'm pretty sure that during this year alot of progress will be made. I remember when they said on the news on December 19, 2006 that the first steel beam of the FT was being installed. And now, 1474 days after, it has already reached the 52th floor.
My best wishes to all of you guys, HAPPY 2011!!

Cool shot. Seems like ages since we've had a height increase on this one.
