I'm really impressed, they doubled the size of the construction in about two and a half weeks. That's amazing, compared to the pace of 1WTC. Everyone should be excited about the progress here.

Yeah we get it, moving fast then tower 1. do you guys have to bring that up everytime you write here. The PA are clueless we get that, Who ever running it should be fired. Giving slivertain all the contral. The first WTC might have open earlier if the PA weren't running the show.

Any chance this will be topped out and have all its cladding by the 9/11 10th anniversary in 2011? It would be nice to have a building done at the WTC site by the time it rolls around. I know the memorial is scheduled to be done by then, and a new tower to accent it (even if only finished on the outside) would be great.

I like how this building is a bit reminiscent of the Twin Towers. When you look at/up the facade, especially on the side without the setback, it reminds me of the towers.

I'd say we're looking at least a 50% chance it could be topped out by the 10th anniversary. Probably not cladded all the way though. We gotta hope Silverstein and the Port Authority don't decide to muck everything up with more lawsuits and work stoppages though. Some of the news articles posted the last couple of days sure are pessimistic to say the least.

Tower one should be over a 1000 feet by then. I don't really care if they finish this building by then. I'm hope when gets some more supertall built in NY. Tower ones the most important to me since they made such a big deal about.

Wow! Looks like there starting the B2 level around the crane. At this rate they'll be at street level by the fourth of July!

That progress is really, really nice.
I do hope that they at least build the foundations of Towers 2 and 3. Right now most of the east bathtub looks empty.

one more floor may well take 4 months, just like with the 1WTC.

I live in pennsylvania, why would i go to a city 68 miles away with a major & potentially disastrous flu outbreak just to take photos of an unfinished building that i can wait 2-3 weeks to take photos of?

Will add those new photos by tonight.
