No it did not. They poured a batch a month ago because they need to attach formwork. Even permanent formwork is not even halfway completed. ( they one that will climb with tower).

Forget about any jumping this year. Even probably forget about any tower cranes this year too. Defiantly forget about new steel.

The rest of this year will be just PREP stuff going on.

Lol. The prep will be done in about a month once the rest of climbing system is finished being installed. Prep has been ongoing since late March.

I think they have installed a base frame for a exterior elevator on the east side.
They are already working on the rebar for the next pour as they are setting up all the details of the climbing forms. They are not waiting for prep work to be complete before continuing construction.

Although I think a "jump" is not exactly the proper word, since they haven't installed a climbing system yet, the building is indeed growing and is not just in PREP work.

They already did a whole new floor for the core. (Not sure if it is actually a floor, but they did add about 3 meters of height to the core) In the picture of towerpower123, you can see the wall to the right of the orange crane, to have a different color in the concrete of the top level, that was poured between the last days of september / first of october. To the left, they are already installing new formwork with rebar already placed, to pour another level, that what was refered by Towerpower123 as "a jump"

I am not sure if that formwork is already a climbing system, or the will continue to place the formwork manually as they did with the last "level" they poured. The core will reduce after the seventh floor of the podium (the part of the core nearer to the memorial will dissapear) and maybe they will install the climbing system after that.

Although looking closely at it on the webcam and towerpower pictures, it looks that it is indeed the climbing system.

It is rising, very slowly, but rising. By the end of the year I expect the core to add at least a couple of levels more.

What's currently being installed is indeed the climbing system.

Refer to this -

That whole unit is automatically jumped, not just the forms.

2015 is going to be an exciting year. Steel is going to start back up and this will begin making its impact throughout the year

It's quite promising to see this tower back under construction. Hopefully it will considerably improve the WTC site as a whole, as I haven't been too impressed with what has been built so far. I still hold out hope that this and 2WTC will save this development.

Errr....4WTC, 1WTC and the transit hall - not to mention the Memorial & museum; they don't meet your high standards?
