Why doesn't the federal government help out with the funding of these buildings?

I mean re-building WTC is a national effort to show the world how America cannot be defeated. Scaling back or canceling these buildings will show that the terrorists will win.

So this is a national priority to build these buildings and the memorial.

Huh? There's neither a rendering nor construction progress to "wow" at, so you leave me confused...

There's work going on in the hole though, just because it's not above ground yet doesn’t mean things aren't going on. Check the previous pages.

Derek2k3 on WNY said apparently this tower was originally supposed to be 1,300ft, but was shortened because of the economic crisis. There is a team working on the design, but he wasn't allowed to see it.

A forum member on WNY posted this link filed with the NY Dept of Buildings. The tower is listed as 953 feet tall and 73 floors. That certainly could change in the future. But I think this thread should be moved to the Skyscraper section.

I think that's only roof height though, I don't know. Let's wait for the design to come out first.

i know this height (measured to the heighest occupied floor, maybe there is a crown or something...), but as Onn said, let's wait till it's finally confirmed.

well they filed papers stating 73 floors not 80....

SSP puts it at 73 fl/953 feet. 1083 ft/80 floors was reported by a NY fanboy whose now banned. Find a report that says 1083 and 80 floors. This belongs in proposed section anyway. Rerouting utility lines isn't under construction..

there were several articles which stated the 1083ft height, the architect himself was quoted, if i recall rightly. but i agree with you that for now it should be listed as 953ft, cause it's official (the link you posted says so)!

about moving the thread: lol, i think it was moved about 4 times, back and forth. i don't care anymore ... just inform me when it's U/C for real .

EDIT: ok, i read the articles again, and the architect says it's 330m (1083ft)! so we should't change the height!


there you go...

The UFO glass Portzamparc Beatrice Rochebouet 24/09/2009 The planner many projects, from Casablanca to New York. He has just inaugurated the headquarters of Bouygues Immobilier, in Issy-les-Moulineaux. Tomorrow, he flew to Casablanca, her hometown, where he won in late June, the competition for the new theater, CasArt, a nesting of buildings of different heights on an austere land of 24 000 m2 surrounded by institutions Place Mohammed-V. Yesterday, it was inaugurated in Issy-les-Moulineaux, the new headquarters Bouy * gues Estate, Galeo a building HQE (High Environmental Quality) covered with a second skin made of 700 tortoiseshell veneers that create silkscreen glass a particular luminosity. And in a few days it will unveil its new tower of 330 meters in Manhattan across from Carnegie Hall on 57th Avenue. A record high for a tower housing a form as incredible as that built for LVMH in 1995 ........\\

L'urbaniste multiplie les projets, de Casablanca à New York. Il vient d'inaugurer le siège social de Bouygues Immobilier, à Issy-les-Moulineaux.

Demain, il s'envole pour Casablanca, sa ville natale, où il vient de remporter, fin juin, le concours pour le nouveau théâtre, CasArt, une imbrication de bâtiments de différentes hauteurs sur un terrain austère de 24 000 m2 cernée par des institutions, place Mohammed-V. Hier, il a inauguré, à Issy-les-Moulineaux, le nouveau siège social de Bouy*gues Immobilier, Galeo, un immeuble HQE (haute qualité environnementale) recouvert d'une seconde peau faite de 700 facettes en écaille de verre sérigraphié qui créent une luminosité particulière. Et dans quelques jours, il dévoilera sa nouvelle tour de 330 mètres, à Manhattan, en face du Carnegie Hall, sur la 57e Avenue. Un record de hauteur pour une tour de logement, d'une forme aussi incroyable que celle construite pour LVMH, en 1995........

ok, this tower is officially U/C: CTBUH. it is listed as 290m, so i guess the remaining 40m will be a crown. there are still no renders released but i'm pretty sure it can't be any longer till we see some nice renders.

Glad to hear it. Is it possible to get a picture of what is going on down in the hole?
