Thanks for the pic's Mark, haven't seen those ones in a while. The Freedom Tower's glass really compliments the facade of the WFC. Its give the skyline from that angle a whole new perspective. Even though those are older renderings (just of the other towers, not FT).

You didn't include the pictures of the Freeddom Tower with the NWTC
Plus most of them are the old renderings.

Back to the construction:

Overheard some people at ground zero yesterday talking about how disgraceful
it was that nothing has been done. But at least now we have something that
we can actually point to and see it's there, even if just the early stages...

JANUARY 14, 2007




Even as it just peeks at street level...

Thanks for the renderings NYguy, especially the one of the FT on street level. I never really knew what that looked liked. Construction should continue to move on a steady pace. Spitzer should have it all under control.

Probably the most striking pic to me, is the rendering of how the lobby will look!! The setup seems quite familiar with the one in 7 WTC.

Those towers are just gorgeous. They are definately fitting replacements for the old twins.

Foster is proudly and happily pointing to his building as is Rogers. Pataki and Silverstein are both pointing to the Freedom Tower as each claim responsibility for that one. Libeskind still is on the outside forced to look in.

It seems like its picked up, I checked the construction cam numerous times today during my boring work day and saw multiple cement trucks in every shot......hopefully a sign of things to come

I would really like to see this project move a little faster. It seems that they havent done anything since last year, exept make some minor design changes (not including the rest of the complex), and even considering the design changes in the rest of the complex, they should still be working on Freedom.

Nah, there's alot going on. They're working almost every day of the week now. Lots of concrete has been poured over the last week. The excavation of the tower is virtually complete. Steel is going up. They've started to pour concrete for the other bathtub's outside walls... the foundations for the memorial are ongoing. lots and lots happening!

Question 1: from the webcam it appears that there are columns for the east wall going up. Can anybody from NYC confirm?

Question 2: On the last 2 columns, they have attached something about midway up the columns. I can't make out what it is. Can anyone else?

You mean this? I'd like to know also...


And I have also question. What's the thing with that one thin column?

Edit: This one is much more clear:

LOL, Libeskind probably wants to bitch-slap Larry.

I think we all should bitch slap Libeskind. He's the one that almost fucked this whole thing up in the first place.

This was supposed to be a monument to New York's strength and determination, but instead it's turned into a monument to New York's government gridlock.
