    It will be interesting to see what the above ground entrance to that concourse will look like on the BPC side...

    Is there a press release or something that discusses the unveiling? Would like a link if anyone has one.

    Prepping for West St. Pedestrian Underpass Work

    lowermanhattan.info
    August 24, 2006


    The underpass is part of the
    WTC Transportation Hub project

    The opening phases of work on the West Street pedestrian underpass is now underway, with test pits being dug on West Street at Fulton, just east of the Winter Garden.

    The underpass is part of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub project and eventually will be part of the pedestrian link between the Fulton Street Transit Center and the World Financial Center. The test pitting will take place on West Street (Route 9A) weeknights from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through mid-September. Details about the complete scope of work and traffic revisions are expected in coming weeks.

    Maybe it's just me but they seem to be taking their sweet time on that foundation.

    It took over a year to build the foundation for the Bank of America Tower.

    I thought it took more like ~3 months to dig a hole, then the other 9 to put the steel and concrete in. The hole doesn't really look much different than it did in April.

    They are. Keep in mind it took two years to build the slurry wall, install the tiebacks, excavate the "bathtub," dump the fill in the Hudson and bring 1WTC up to street level. This time they have the advantage of skipping steps 1-3 and they're still taking almost as much time.

    Look at this post for Goldman Sachs HQ from March 11 '06 -- almost 6 months ago: http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/sh...&postcount=740

    How far have they gotten?

    This sh!t takes time ...

    And if you look at the construction schedule posted by the LMDC you'll see that its not behind schedule, I forget the dates, but I remember that the schedule for the foundation is long but construction will pick up once steel starts to rise.

    ^Which means they scheduled the ass-dragging. I wonder why.

    The Hudson Terminal remained standing until well after the top-out of the towers and the completeion of the new PATH station. I believe it was finally taken down between 1973 and 1974, concurrent with the construction of 4WTC.

    I'm creating a new New WTC model, with all the uber complexity of the classic WTC model. Check it out.

    Is it just me or does that look like a concrete floor in that pit in that last picture?
