    Construction progress of the new 7 WTC on 6 September 2003.

    Still nothing above ground ?
    That's a little disappointing.

    7 WTC is the large cement structure above ground in the background. It looks about 5 stories so far. Considering that the sub-station is going to be 10 stories, I'd say they are halfway done with the substation.

    Wow! I didn't realize the sub-station was that rising that far above ground. :shock:

    Is that as far as they've got with 7 wtc? What the hell are they doing?

    This is very surprising indeed.
    At some point, this building was supposed to be rebuilt in a matter of a couple of years.

    Sadly, I think we can expect this kind of timetable for the rest of the WTC. We'd better get used to it.

    I used to work in the old 7 WTC. The view, to the south, was awful; although, the view the north was second to none-it was fantastic (it was the last, unobstructed view in downtown). Especially, from the gym on the 47th floor...the areobics room was on the North side...we're talkin' 40-50 feet of floor to cealing windows. My friend used to bug me to take a picture...I always said I'd "get around to it."

    Soly put in a floor, when I was there...the 41st floor was actually a double floor, when Citigroup bought Soly...the brought the steel in from the windows...that was wild.

    One other interesting note...one of the building engeneers told me that the executive management at Soly had charcoal air filters installed, back in the late 80s...the the air was cleaner than a hospital's...

    Really interesting stuff, JMC. Everyone knows about the Twin Towers, but very little has ever been said about 7 WTC.

    Silverstein and Tishman are in NO hurry, they dont have one inch of space rented out so why ruch. Sadly this will be a porblem that the rest of the site will encounter, nobody is interested in office space in Lower Manhattan anymore

    No one is interested in flooding the market with office space in Lower Manhattan anymore. The new WTC will be constructed as is demanded by the industry. Right now there's no demand.

    Yes, but there are paying rent, etc. on the site, so I'm sure there is some desire to build.
