I would love it if they didn't demolish the Singer Building and the City Investing Building for it.

But yeah, I can't wait to see this finished. Such an awesome design.

No doubt.

Also if you compare those 8/15 photos with today, you can already see that the B1 floor is built out to the future Greenwich street on the webcam. We should see a concrete pour over it this week. Super fast.

1. Get you facts straight before complaining..

2. Silverstein can't get a loan (funding) and Port Authority don't want to provide funding to build WTC 2 and 3.

anyway latest update:

* Foundation work including steel and concrete installation; substructure to grade by early September 2009
* Tower crane was installed in early March 2009; second crane to be installed in late 2009 * well this blows
* Overnight utility work on Liberty Street is ongoing through fall 2009
* Vehicular Security Center construction in tower substructure

i know that.....you aren't telling me anything new. Its his responsibility to build it before 2014 and he should get his act together and build it. the fact that he wants funding from the port authority does not change the fact that it is his responsibility.

While it's true the clock is ticking now on Silverstein to finish his towers after the PA has handed over the sites. It's not Silverstein's fault the economy went into the tank and he can't land tenants or get financing. If the PA had gotten it's act together 3-4 years ago, Silverstein might have landed the construction loans earlier to build these towers.

oh i certainly agree with you....this should have been started several years ago, you are totally right but now that Silverstein finally does have it, he has a deadline, and a responsibility to build the towers. the contract states that if he breaches it, he will lose possession of all of the towers.

This seems to be what the PA wants, they want Silverstein out. Hopefully some sort of understanding can be made. But it doesn't look good. This is such a huge mess. The Transportation hub is interconnected with 2 and 3 WTC. If the PA wants its billion dollar hub its gotta have the two neighboring towers. But their's no money. So they're either going to have to backstop the loans for Silverstein or redesign the Hub. Which will wind up costing millions of dollars more and delaying things even further.

And a lot of steel rebar.

Its basement looks like a giant 3d maze.

It does because there is a central core and then, what looks to be, a second smaller elevator core.
