The bare concrete side of that brown skyscraper is horrible.

The movie "Iron Sky" has a good idea of the finalized tower.

Everything but good!

The towers are in a total other position than in this picture. They are behind the o'leary tower.

If by good you mean bad, I'll agree with you As mentioned above me, it isn't in the right place. But the building itself is probably pretty similar to what it will look like.

From that angle, 2WTC will completely cover 1WTC.

But I like Beekman.

He supposedly will be signing the last steel beam that will go in when it is finally topped out. But it isn't going to happen today.

GSA is close to final deal at 1WTC

By STEVE CUOZZO
Last Updated: 10:49 AM, June 14, 2012

"Just in time for President Obama’s Ground Zero visit today, the federal General Services Administration came a big step closer to finalizing a long-awaited lease at 1 World Trade Center.

The GSA just signed off on a “lease prospectus” covering nearly 300,000 square feet with the Durst Organization, which is managing 1 WTC for its partner, the Port Authority.

The deal will mean that more than half of 1 WTC’s 3 million square feet is leased — considered an important milestone to encourage more tenants to move into the iconic tower.

The GSA paperwork has been forwarded for approval to congressional panels — the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure — which are expected to affirm the terms promptly.

“I don’t see any red flags,” that might hold up a speedy approval, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told The Post.

Schumer — who prodded the GSA to follow through on the lease that was first proposed five years ago — added, “I think we can meet the July 4 deadline,” the date when Douglas Durst said he wanted the deal done.

The PA will finalize the lease as soon as it’s approved in Washington.

The tower is to open in early 2015, and the GSA will move in after Oct. 1 that year.
Condé Nast will make its new home at 1 WTC, and China’s Beijing Vantone has also leased space.

Schumer said, “Now, 1 WTC is just a step away from passing the critical 50-percent occupancy threshold.

“Now that the parties have agreed to final terms, I am calling on Congress to move ASAP to sign off” on it.

Although basic terms of the 20-year, 270,000-square-foot lease were agreed to in a term sheet last August, things stalled as the GSA was racked by turmoil over a spending scandal at the agency.

As The Post reported, Schumer reached out to GSA acting chief Daniel Tangherlini last spring to break the logjam.

Durst spokesman Jordan Barowitz called the all-but-done deal “the result of a lot of hard work.”

The rent is an average $66.33 per square foot over the first five years, but the deal will cost the GSA considerably less than that through various concessions. "

July 4, 2012 - Building Tops Out
September 11, 2012 - Concrete flooring reaches the top
December 2012 - Glass Cladding reaches the top of the building
March 2013 - Spire is constructed and installed.

6 or 8 months required to finish interior work of building, the plaza surrounding the building, and cladding of the base.

So it could be Late 2013 or Early 2014.

No way this building is opening in Early 2013.

That's really inaccurate. Where is 7 WTC, plus the FT is not that close to the Beekman...

Okay, sorry but this is totally inaccurate. One, you don't know exactly what date when the concrete flooring reaches the final floor, the glass will be finished sooner than December, and three the spire isn't being constructed in March, it's being constructed this summer after topping out. Please don't use Wikipedia next time, that's exactly where this came from.

Will someone, pull their collective head, out of their collective ass, and give us a more definitive date, of when this ******* thing is to open??!!!!! 2013, 2014, 2015. Goddammit, different people give different dates, and that is no good! Somebody make up their ******* minds, and stick to it. Otherwise stop confusing the public as to when it is to either be done or open!

Yeah. The Beekman is in the shot, but it is behind 1 WTC, which means 1 WTC's location is way off.
