Steel construction on One World Trade Center, formerly called the Freedom Tower, reached the 52nd floor just before Christmas last month, marking the half-way point toward structural completion of the 104-floor tower in New York. The 16 acre World Trade Center complex will be the site of a transportation hub and several other buildings, including a performing arts center, office and retail space and a memorial and museum to remember those who lost their lives in the September 11 terrorist attacks on the original World Trade Center towers nine years ago.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the developers of the project, have a web site with photos, video clips, progress reports and other information about the construction. This week, they are inviting you to submit any questions you may have to Lynda Tollner, program manager of construction on the project. Questions will be accepted January 10 through January 17. Answers will be posted on their website after Tollner has had a chance to review them and respond.
In the meantime, please enjoy one of the many interesting videos they have posted of the construction in action.
