Yeah, they are doing the foundation for the tower next to 5WTC. An office building next to it shifted an inch or so, so it was put on hold, but I am sure that it's going again now. I may make a thread for it and post pictures of its foundation u/c if I could find them.

I love the design of 2WTC. It's unique and modern. The top looks fantastic. That "WTC-plaza" will look stunning when those all are built.

Cool video of the PA working on the foundations, but it's a few months old.

How about the GOldman Sachs building right across the street? 230 meters, I think. About the same as 7WTC. The steel for the first five floors is up already.

I think they are building floor 9 right now; by the time they top out, the Freedom Tower will be ready to rise just as fast.

These days, site preperation or just excavations (including cassion drilling) can say anything.

And we know how big those are... If you've ever stood next to one of them, you know what I mean.







It's almost like building a JHC and Aon Center right next to each other.
