It hit the halfway done mark on Monday this week. They're erecting & pouring a floor a week now. They're also glazing almost a floor a week as well. They're expected to top it out in 2011 and be finished by 2013. Hard to imagine that in 9yrs we'd be halfway done with rebuilding there.

Kinda sad that it's taken even this long when the TWIN Towers were BOTH finished in just under 12 years, and that's from concept to completion! Kinda embarrassing that the greatest country in the world, with some of the newest construction technologies, can't approve, design, and build one tower and surrounding facilities any faster than they did starting back in 1962. very sad indeed. :( :( :(

Not really. We have much stricter laws now and things take longer to get approved. Plus I'm sure they're building it so that it doesn't crumble like a block of Legos.

Define entire project. The Freedom tower website states the tower will be finished and ready for occupancy Q3 of 2013. Are you refering to the plans that Donald Trump and others are floating of rebuilding the Twin Towers themselves in addition to the Freedom tower?

The entire project. That is the completion of the entire 16 acre site. The freedom tower is just the start.

Its not that at all. Everyone is fighting every little part of this project to get what they want. In the old days this was just another construction site and there werent all these a**holes involved. From 1968 till now buliding codes have changed but very little. If anything with perfab construction and module design things are 10x faster. Its just everyone with there nose up eachothers a** to show they had something to do with this and get the money and free press from it.

That makes much more sense then. I can see why that would take forever. How many different phases of construction are scheduled to take place?

Good to hear. Make sure the ironworkers who top out the tower are wearing these when they set that last piece of steel:

Thats my shirt.

Anyways we should build a mosque at the top of it.
