    Thanks for the photos, but is it just me or is this building being constructed extremely slowly?

    Once they finish the concrete to steel connection is should really start to rise.

    Concrete requires a few days (7) to reach minimal strength for further construction. 28 days for full...

    Depending on the size of the building, they may be doing it in several pours, so they need to lay out the formwork, reinforcement and all that ahead of time on the one section to be poured.

    They pour that, and while waiting, set up the next pour section. The pours are usually spaced out by a week.

    Now the second pour is ready to go. The second goes in, and the first pour area is hardened and ready to set up the formwork for columns and walls.

    They finish the pour on the second section, start framing the third, and start framing the first pours walls and such, etc etc. They try to time it so that the walls and columns will be ready to set the next stories formwork up by the time they are finished with the lower floor.

    And comparitively, steel erection flies.

    It has nothing to do with phallic symbols; it's just that a building shaped like a vagina doesn't have as much structural integrity as one that tapers upward.

    ...BTW, are you male or female? That's actually a question I've wanted to ask of many people on this board; a lot of us are very asexual.

    I think there was a pause during the holidays, I didn't see much happening. But that's just a guess, probably not likely...

    7WTC does not count. It was not owed by the Port Authority.

    Gotcha...So did the owner of WTC 7 have to get permission to use the name from the Port Authority?
