1 World Trade Center Grows Tall

One World Trade Center, formerly Freedom Tower, is going up at the rate of one story a week. It is now over 1000 feet tall, on it's way to 1776 feet. The Port Authority of NY and NJ has a website (WTCprogress) that follows the progress.

One World Trade Center is now the tallest building in Lower Manhattan at 1,000 feet above street level, surpassing 40 Wall Street, which was built in 1930. Steel for the building has risen to the 80th floor.

The guy who wanted to kill the new World Trade Center is now developing it.

Andrew Rice / Bloomberg Busineesweek:
The Saving of Ground Zero --
To the degree that it’s possible for a 102-story building to take a city by surprise, One World Trade Center snuck up on the New York skyline. For years the project, conceived in the throes of tragedy, has been debated, negotiated, renamed, redrawn, hailed as a beacon, and maligned as a boondoggle. It wasn’t until recently, though, that it presented itself as an immutable fact, beginning to replace the void above Ground Zero with steel and reflective glass. Designed to commemorate lost life and recapture lost revenue, the half-completed skyscraper is both a nationalistic statement—it was formerly known as the “Freedom Tower”—and the centerpiece of a speculative real estate project.

From his headquarters high above 42nd Street, about three miles to the north, real estate developer Douglas Durst has been keeping watch over One World Trade’s rise. “I think it’s going to be quite spectacular,” he says one sultry July afternoon, sitting in a room decorated with photographs of his forbears in the family real estate company. Looking south over the majestic spread of Manhattan, One World Trade was wrapped in midsummer haze, and the air was thick with irony. If anyone in power had listened to Durst years ago, the vastly expensive tower would not exist...
