damn I had no clue it was this far along. And at 975 feet why shouldn't it top out first, It's only 375 feet shorter then FT roof top.

They'll be removing the 150 ton crawler crane in mid December. I'd imagine they wouldn't do that until after they have at least one tower crane in place so you might see one in less than a month.

Man, after seeing how fast this tower has progressed in just a couple of months, I hate to think "what if" 1WTC had been built in this plot or maybe 2WTC's plot? 4WTC and 2WTC plots are going to be a lot more 'user friendly' than its current site in the NW corner. Think about how much further 1WTC could be right now. It'd probably be about 100 feet high already.

Oh well.... too late now. But really great to see this one progressing quickly.

Politics keep tower one from growing. design changes a little dumb sh!t. Alot of people would rather see it dead then see it built. No matter there somewhat on track now thats all that I care about.

The hole is where the concourse, basement & parking used to be. You can see the remnants of the parking garage on the northeast corner of this side right next to where the temporary PATH entrance was. You could see it from the PATH entrance when it was active.

Will the underground space be used for parking again?

I am not sure how they plan to arrange the below grade space. I am sure there will be some parking for employees, but other people i've seen have level by level diagrams for proposed underground layout.

As far as I know the first two basement levels from the bottom will be used for parking. The other two levels are for retail purposes
