NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Port Authority Executive Director Chris Ward was beaming as he said great progress is being made on the construction of One World Trade Center.

“Now, coming down the West Side Highway, coming from the Holland Tunnel, you can see the twin cranes at the top,” Ward told WCBS 880 reporter Rich Lamb. “It’s over the Verizon building. We’re at the 56th story.”

By this fall, he says, it’ll be remarkable.

“Well, when we all gather and the world looks down on that site on the ten year anniversary, they’re gonna see a 85 to 90-story structure.”

Right now, he says we’re a little more than half way.
