Construction Pour(n): One WTC Plaza Takes Shape

New, 11 comments

Further evidence that the Freedom Tower One World Trade Center tower will actually exist: this epic concrete pour, which, per Port Authority public relations executives, took 14 hours and used the equivalent of six miles worth of sidewalk concrete. This plaza, on the eastern side of One WTC, includes a fountain—see that large circle? Fountain!—and concrete boxes where Swamp White Oaks will one day grow. For the true concrete junkies amongst us, there's an epic two-minute time-lapse video of the pour. Pour, baby, pour!
