Yeah, I know what you mean. It will be nice when that eyesore is finally history.

It's going as fast as the rest of the project (SLOW) it's only about four years behind schedule. Kind of normal for anything associated with ground zero!

At the rate of one floor per month, it won't be down by the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Now that's sad.

But seriously, the lower it goes, the faster it should be demolished. So maybe by the end of the year. Maybe...

From today. Could someone outline the eventual perimeter of this tower using the image below? It would be greatly appreciated.

How's this. I'm unsure about the Greenwich street side, cause I don't really know how much of that side is sidewalk.




Bonus look,

It doesn't seem like much work has been going on lately though.

This first floor is definitely taking some time, but it looks like this is going to be a very solid building.
