I agree and also once there will be any string of good news about economy even more activity will resume again.

Gehry's Beekman Place can be seen rising in this photo. When they're both completed, this will be an awesome sight of two approximately 900 foot towers (one just over 900 feet and the other just under).

I don't get your comment. Both buildings will be approximately 900 feet tall.

From what I saw the entire area around the Freedom Tower from West Street, to the memorial, to the temporary transit hub are up to street level. The Freedom Tower site is crawling with workers. Forms are starting to rise to encase the steel columns with concrete. The north core is severely lagging and I was told the south core is up to 300 feet, although that can't be accurate (maybe with the crane?). The perimeter columns below street level have been encased in a concrete wall. Also of note I was told that construction is progressing at 2 and 3 although right now only the bases will be built as financing in the current market cannot be obtained for the towers as well. The bases are being built to support towers and Silverstein is hoping to get financing based on projections of a rosier market when these towers are completed but as of right now its just not there and this'll become a major issue once 2 and 3 reach street level. It is imperative that they reach street level though since the PATH Station cannot function otherwise. Also 99 Church is indefinitely on hold since again there is no financing.
