The underground portion of this tower is special becouse it has to be built around PATH tracks, so the columns are not straight forward, there will be outrigger trusses, and load transfer trusses, and irregular column lines, (if you read blueprints you'll know what i mean,) and i'll bet most of it will be in reinforced concrete, and that takes extra time, but they know where its all going, it just takes time to put it in.
I doubt they know what they are doing. If they knew what they where doing they would be half way done by now.

I doubt you know nothing of this project. If you knew what you were talking about, you wouldn't be making that statement.

They just started 18 months ago! If you can't deal with a 1776' tower's foundation being constructed, then get in a coma for 1 year and come back when it's 40 stories tall.

The very first time I visited Paris was when I was 16 and with my mother. I've been back several times during the 1980's and '90's, but the last time was either '97 or '98 ... so it's nearly a decade since I was last in Paris.

To me, Paris is exceptional, unique. I would argue it is the most beautiful city in the world. It is a very feminine city (unlike London - to me, a very masculine city) in the ornate architecture, tree lined boulevards, formal parks and gardens. I feel one must walk slowly through Paris and take in all the details: the wrought iron balconies, the fountains, the statues, the Metro station entrances, the bridges, the street lamps, the little shops and galleries. I love the Left Bank (Rive Gauche) and the area around St. Germain is my favorite neighborhood. Needless to say, I love Paris.

actually, going offtopic but London is very much a feminine city but the fact that she's been rustled up and blitzed by the wars alongsie a chaotic 60/70s planning system. I agree Paris is very much a feminine city and a beautiful one too, London is her mother!

Anyway another freak fire, that's got to be three within the last month.

That damn ugly eye sore should of been demolished/exploded
Weeks after 9/11 instead of dismantling it screw by screw.
Two fire fighters lost their lives for fear that knocking
Down the bank in a few minutes might bring awful memories
Back to local residents. To the residents take a long weekend
Off, blow that stupid building up and stop this method of
Madness.
To Our bravest...REST IN PEACE.

They couldn't explode it...it is highly contaminated and contains asbestos.

I agree with you, they should've made a decision to take it down long before 6 years later, it's all about the MON-AAAY of course and if the insurers were gonna cover the demolition costs or not. The insurers actually wanted to repair the building because it was cheaper!

This shouldn't delay construction at all.

It was rounded down to go with 541m. The actual height is still 1776ft though.

It just shows that welding or cutting of steel in the presence of combustable materials is not a good idea.
