    It's coming along. It looks like they are about ready to start pouring the slab, but they still need to do under slab utilities and a few more footings.

    You may notice diagonal parallel footings near the corner of the slurry wall - that is where the ramp comes in from the vehicle security center.

    Wow, I had no clue they were that far along with 4. Thanks for the pic.

    Just curious, are all the WTC towers going to be steel framed with a concrete core?

    Looking at this pic (and you see the same on the western side of the site), it seems like the slurry walls leaks. Is this normal? Isn't the whole point of this wall to keep the water out?

    Well at least this one is progressing nicely. I'll be interested in seeing how the PA deals with that retaining wall that needs to be removed.

    I have zero interest in the construction of this one, its another GoldmanSachs, a complete wasted opportunity.

    Better than having another hole in the ground, but architectually, not the gem of the new WTC.
