Freedom Tower growing fast, tall and proud

Freedom Tower growing fast, tall and proud  |  New York City  |  This is the view I have every night when I go running to the Hudson River Park, and today I was quite amazed by the progress the Freedom Tower has had in the last few month. Freedom Tower, a New York symbol that surpasses architectural engineering. A beacon of freedom, liberty and peace. (FYI is the building in the middle with the white lights)
The New York City Freedom Tower, which will stand 1,776 feet tall on the site of the former World Trade Center, will be the tallest building in the United States and is the work of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. It will serve as a beacon of freedom, and demonstrate the resolve of the United States, and the people of New York City. Construction on the tower, which will have a cubic base, began in early 2006. Steel became visible aboveground in 2007, and by 2013 the building will be ready for occupancy – twelve years after the World Trade Center was destroyed by terrorist attacks.  CM
