Do we know any particular reason why they're choosing to build just the core for now?

There was an explanation a few pages back:

This is how 2 and 3 WTC will be.

So I guess we'll be seeing the steel rise pretty soon.

Massive fire off of Figueroa St. Scared me when I first saw it but it was an under construction apartment complex about 7 blocks away from WGC. Shut down 101 and 110

I thought about the WG building when I first saw on the CNN website about the terrible fire. But the video made it clear it wasn't this building - you could see steel beams in the inferno - whereas this thing is still just a concrete core rising up.

That was a wood framed 7-story building that burned. The whole thing lit up very quickly.
