It took 7 - 8 years to build actually. 66 - 73. WTC 7 was complete in 1987 but that doesn't count being as it wasn't part of the masterplan at the time of the WTC, unlike WTC's 1 - 6. Already we are very close to the 7th anniversary, and still hardly anywhere. There has been an enormous amount done to repair extremely damaged structures around Manhattan and everything, but the WTC site, Im sorry but it is a little slow to be fair. Yes they had to clear up the site and everywhere else which took a long time, but it was a site with no activity for 3 or 4 years. Im getting sick of seeing this toxic tower as well, they keep saying it will be down by a certain time and it NEVER is. They said end of 2008, its still exactly the same as it was 14 months ago, they won't get this down in 4 months, so they willl say they found remains or something and it will be down mid 2009.

Welcome back, WTC's. I just wish they looked more like the originals.

According the latest report 130 Liberty will be completely gone by next summer when the south bathtub extension will be working on the site.

They have said this for years so I'll believe it when I see it.

imploded? umm think before you write

we better take it slowly and make sure that no other lives wouldn't be lost. We have enough of 2 dead firefighters, we don't need anymore casualties, which then will result in even more delays.

I was saying that if this was a normal skyscraper in a different city, they would have imploded it like they had to do to the 35-storey Landmark Tower in Fort Worth, they had to demolish it after a tornado wrecked it in 2000. But this is New York where all the buildings are so close and they can't just cordon off a city block to demolish it, and this isn't an average building, it's full of mold.

Is there any progress with the deconstruction or is it still at the same height?

There's no design. They say the new design will be slimmer and won't have a cantilever. I don't care how long they take as long as 130 Lib comes down and something taller goes up.

They are half-way right?
When will they continue with the deconstruction?

They've been active for months. However they now have to completely abate the whole building before they can start taking down any more floors. Before they would abate just a few floors below the floor being demolished.

They should have the whole building decontaminated and active demolition of the structure restarted real soon.

Yes. Now they have no choice but to get a tower that rises to a height of nearly 60 floors and 900 feet and use it for a 900-room hotel and an undetermined amount of residential units.

The latest news from the NY Post,

Deutsche ‘Done’
By Chuck Bennett | February 19, 2009
New York Post
The Lower Manhattan Development Corp. said yesterday the condemned former Deutsche Bank building will be gone by this fall, and released plans for taking it down.

Decontamination is expected to be complete by the end of March. Work will start in late April on tearing down the remaining 26 floors.

Among new safety measures is an alarm on the standpipes and special emergency exits. Two firefighters were killed in a 2007 blaze because the standpipe had been cut.

That not good news or bad news. I don't think this a good enough reason to pull this thread out from its resting place.
