That will make one majestic skyline for lower Manhattan , I have a question tho.. I've been following this rebuild stuff ever since 9/11 and I've never seen any actual renderings of the towers from the east side, from Brooklyn or so. Are there any even? It'd be great to see tower 2 from the east

Excavation machinery seems to be making a hole right where Tower 4 will go. Groundbreaking?

What a planning/construction nightmare. Except for maybe on Dubai, where else on Earth do you have a dozen towers, all OVER 700 feet tall, going up at the same time? I really can't wait for 99 Church Street by 7WTC.

The tower is great, but the older base design was better

A dozen 700+ foot tall towers under construction all at the same time in Dubai? That's a crazy number because it's actually 46!

In the same 6-block area. I was talking about the WTC and the expanded WTC site, which is just a small part of Manhattan Island. There are WAY more buildings over 700' going up/will soon be going up in all of NYC than just 12. My point was that you're not going to find a more active/concentrated/massive construction site in the world than what NY and Dubai have.

Volume 20 Issue 21 | October 5 - 11 2007

Working 20-7

Residents also took their pleas about sleepless nights to the Port Authority. Glenn Guzzi and Quentin Braathwaite of the Port acknowledged that the agency’s current work along the eastern edge of the site — breaking up old concrete slabs and digging out 30 vertical feet of dirt and debris — is noisy, shaky and disruptive. They also acknowledged that while the Port’s crews strive to do their noisiest work during the day, it doesn’t always work out that way.

“We recognize that some noisy work does occur after 11 p.m.,” said Guzzi, who added that there would likely be aggressive jack-hammering for the next few weeks. The Port is pushing to meet its end-of-year deadline to turn part of the east bathtub over to Silverstein Properties so that Silverstein can build Towers 3 and 4. The Port must pay $300,000 for every day it is late.

Brathwaite said that at times between now and the end of the year, the Port will work two 10-hour shifts a day. While most of the eastern slurry wall is complete, the state-city agency is only 40 percent through the task of excavating the sites.


“It’s quite an incredible amount of soil that has to be removed,” Brathwaite said.

As the dig goes on, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner continues to do spot checks to ensure that there are no lingering human remains. The soil composition is also tested to make sure the dirt is compatible with various deposit sites outside the city.

The good news, the Port officials said, is that once the digging is done and the towers begin to go up, the neighborhood will experience shorter work hours and less noise. In the meantime, though, several board members asked why they could not be protected by sound barriers. The Port recently set up a wall of buffers along Church St. to mute the jack-hammers across from the Millenium Hotel.

Brathwaite said that those buffers would not help residents, since they can only mute sound occurring at street level. The dig on the southern side of the site, where the residents are, is well below grade — so the sound would continue traveling upward.

50 West Street has just been approved. It's a 64-story mixed-use tower close to the WTC. I don't know how tall it will be, but I'd say in the 700-850 range.
