The 9/11 attacks happened just over a decade ago. While no one was proposing building towers again before the dust settled, there was absolutely no argument that the building should be done. After making sure to recover the fallen and clearing the site to prepare it for building, the building should commence. Ten years later, we’re still waiting for the building to be completed. The original World Trade Center‘s 2 tallest buildings took just 5 years to complete, and that was from 1966 – 1971.
Even with improvements in technology and technique, we’ve managed to complete just 1 of the proposed towers.
Have a look at what it looks like when people mean it about constructing a building. This is a 30-story tower built in China. Total time of construction? Fifteen (15) days.
You just have to wonder what’s the holdup here when you see that it can be done much faster.
