The article reports that while the world lauds or derides the redesigned Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center, reworked from bottom to top and shifted 65 feet to the east to meet New York City Police Department security concerns, the team for the planned 1,776-feet-tall tower is working feverishly to revise the project's schedule by the end of the month. According to George J. Tamaro, a partner with local geotechnical and foundation engineer Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers, redesign of the foundations, primarily spread footings bearing on rock, should take a couple of months.
