Even though none of the perimeter columns have gone up, you can totally see the outline of the building already...

BTW, I was wondering why there were those three depressions in the concrete to the south of the building, outside of the footprint, but it finally dawned on me... tree planters!

Thanks for drawing the outline RKOwens44! I didn't realize the tower is that large. I looked at wtc.com and saw the lower floors are 44,000 sq ft. That's 10% bigger than 1WTC. I hope the steel arrives soon.

Mostly just below grade work. It's hard to tell on the rebuildgroundzero webcam, but they maybe putting up more formworks for the cores. But looks like we're not going to see the second tower crane or steel for awhile.

Not "On Hold", but more of a "slow down".

I hope so. But we've been hearing "anyday now" for awhile. Lowermanhattan.info used to update the status of this one every week. I just checked their website, the last update is from Oct 10. That's not a good sign.

NyatKnight on WNY is reporting steel should arrive in January. He's usually pretty reliable on info regarding the WTC.

Can't wait to see this rising! Curious on how this will look eventually.

Well, no steel until January and the arbitration is still ongoing. We've heard from several involved with the site that the contractor was told to stop at ground level, and it looks like they've done that aside from raising the forms for the next level.

I wonder how high they can go without building out the basement on the rest of the site?

STEEL!!

Surprise, Surprise! Someone on Wired New York said steel is going up on the site today. Sadly the webcam is stuck on yesterday, so someone is going to have to get down there to take some pictures!

I hope they weren't confusing that with memorial steel. But they have put in a crane on the north side of the tower.
