Seven Years Later, Still little Progress at Ground Zero

Seven years after terrorist destroyed the World Trade Center, construction efforts at Ground Zero still show little evidence of progress. The 26 projects planned for Ground Zero (totaling over $15 billion) are "over budget and behind schedule," said the Port Authority' executive director Christopher Ward. According to Architectural Record:
"Originally scheduled to be to be finished this year, construction of the 1,776-foot-tall (1 World Trade Center) skyscraper has inched along since foundation work began in 2006. Today, steel columns rise a mere 20 feet above street level."
I guess it's not necessarily the triumphant rising of the phoenix that we had hoped for.
