Wow! Thanks for the photos jwalas. What a difference not having to build over the PATH tracks makes. I won't be surprised if this one overtakes 1WTC by the end of the year.

I think a more correct statement would be "What a difference it makes having a project managed by a private corporation instead of a governmental agency"!

The 1 WTC project is being managed by Silverstein not the Port Authority. So I think the PATH statement is more correct.

It doesn't matter who's doing it. Tower 4 is suppose to finish before tower 1 because it much shorter. I don't see it get over 100 feet by the end of the year. We'll have to wait and see.

From everything I've read the Port Authority is in charge of Freedom Tower (1 WTC) and financing it while Silverstein is building and financing towers 2, 3 and 4. That's part of the reason there are so much controversy with the designing of Tower 1 because politics got in the way of good decision-making.

Downtown 2020: Manhattan's Lifeline Into the Future
By Charlotte Cuthbertson
April 8, 2009

NEW YORK—Retaining Manhattan as the epicenter of the world is the work of many minds. “Downtown 2020,” a report researched and written by a team connected to the Steven L. Newman Real Estate Institute, was discussed at a forum in New York Tuesday.

The main principles of the report outlined a vision of sustainability and vibrancy that centered around critical transport solutions and completing the World Trade Center.

From http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/content/view/15020/

I'm looking at that #1 line retaining wall, and all I can see is one small section of it that looks like it was backed off a couple of feet.
Is that all it took to keep Larry happy so he could get on with the foundation? They only recently ordered the steel for the permanent underpinning, so it should be quite a while before that wall is gone alltogether.

Talk about a building that's really progressing fast! Construction is proceeding so much faster than FT, it's amazing.

It's incredible the difference in speed of 4WTC vs 1WTC. I can't get over it.

And the VSC ramp construction is very quick as well.

tower 4 doesn't have a superbase or subway or mall under it. And its just a skyscraper just like tower 7, goldman sachs, beekman tower or any other building in NY.
