Ya gotta keep an open mind when it comes to the timeline the PA/Silverstein releases.

On the other hand it looks like thanks to double shifts around 2WTC site, PA will turn it over to Silverstein in early 09. Rather then in Aug or Sep 09, which was reported in the summer. I guess all that money the PA was looking at in penalties were some nice motivation to speed things up.

Hmm...intresting. They said that they will begin stuctural construction on Tower 4 starting december 1. So I belive we will be seeing alot of progress with Tower 4 over the next year=)

They are saying that they will begin erecting the superstructure of Tower 4 on December 1st but we'll see. They do seem to be moving right along with it though.

It would be nice to see Tower 4 begin to rise in December. Supposidly Tower 4 is supposed to reach grade by spring 2009, along with Tower 3. Tower 2 wont until 2010?

I think the foundation of T4 could be done in December with a bit of luck, but T3 won't rise before spring next year. They still need to finish the excavation of the caissons for the tower, before they could start pouring concrete for its foundation.

Here some recent shots from tower 2 & 4:
Tower 4, they are still pouring concrete in the glacier hole. However on the EarthCam you can see the foundations of the core walls taking shape:


Tower 2, excavation is nearing completion. Next step is the excavation of the caissons for the core and the perimeter columns.

The PANYNJ has completed their excavation work at the site of WTC Tower 2 and will hand it over to developer Larry Silverstein later this week.

Finally the PANYNJ is out of the picture and the prep work is completed.

Just the damn deutsche Bank Building to go now, then for 5 WTC to start then this is truly up and running. I think at this news, there should be separate threads for these 3 now, but keep this thread for memories. I also think it's sad to concrete in that amazing and beautiful glacier hole, very sad indeed actually.

Because some SCC members didn't follow the rules about staying on the topic.

Anyway, that is great news that WTC 2 is about to get started soon!

I have read that they are removing the ramp to the site. To begin on the south footprint.
http://wtc.com/news/wtc-construction...september-2008

The "ramp" is that the large one, we see every year on Sep. 11, where the victimes are walking down to the site? Or is it something else? And where are they moving it to? Pictures please

next year service memorial will be in a different place, I don't remember where

and I was right about ramp ( I noticed they placed construction cones couple weeks ago) + already took 1 crane down last week.

I wonder if that other crane will stay there ( my guess it will)
