Yeah, it seems to be taking forever to see the formworks for the B4 level walls. That's what I wanna see.

The dimension of 2WTC is perfect. Nothing to criticize here.
Not fragile at all. I am designing at 66ftx200ft tower that is around 1300ft tall. It's all about column placement, dampening strategy, aerodynamics, and location.

I wonder what it would look like if they raised that small portion in the back to the very top of the building. Of course that would leave it with six diamonds instead of 4.

But i like what you have proposed here!

They all need to be just a bit taller to pay homage to our lost wonders

They aren't, so we should all just carry on and deal with the construction.

Is this building actually being built to full height at the moment? Or is it only the bottom levels for the transportation hub? At this current time, sorry confused..

Just to street level for now. Silverstein's priority is to find tenants for 3WTC first.

It's been ages since the last time an update picture was posted in this thread. Could someone please take a screenshot of one of those webcams that don't work for me? The only one that works for my browser is the RGZ one, and that one isn't exactly updating regularly (still stuck at Oct. 20th.)

Maybe this link works for you:

http://archives.earthcam.com/archive...gzrobotic1.jpg

It shows the earthcam HD picture, but doesn't need any browser plug-in as far as I know

I had no idea the foundation was this far along. A pleasant surprise.

From Top of the Rock


From Empire State, outdoor deck.


And because, why the hell not, the 102nd floor as well.

Something odd about the views from the north.
It's like looking at a smile with a tooth missing.
There needs to be something to fill the gap between WTC1 and WTC2.
Maybe sometime in the future another project, further to the north...

What is the small building (to be built that is part of the WTC complex)
between WTC1 and WTC2? Performing Arts centre? (Canadian spelling eh!)

There wont be another building filling the gap looking from the north because that's the memorial footprints of the original WTC......

I think the transportation hub is going between WTC2 and WTC3, where the bigger red crane is right now
