WTC Special Report #1: Freedom Tower Rises



Monday, November 24, 2008
by Sarah Hromack

Sweet, sweet Freedom Tower: One day, we will see your spire climb all the way up to 1,776 gloriously patriotic feet. Not until the fourth quarter of 2013, however, if the Port Authority's most recent progress update is to be believed. With construction costs on the rise, the David Childs-designed tower will cost $3.1 billion. (Within 7% of the original estimate. Bargain!) Bonus fun fact: over 13,000 cubic yards of concrete have already been poured down the Freedom Tower's throat, though that number is likely higher by now. And now that the concrete's a flowin', the real challenge will be finding tenants to fill that 2.6 million square feet of office space. A worry for another day.

This week's Freedom Tower update: If anything, people visiting the site at least have a visible symbol of the Freedom Tower rising and where it will stand on the overall site.

Still just a spec on the overall WTC landscape, but it's at 105 ft above street level, and will only go up from there.
