Great video! There's another one from the same series on Foxnews: the Rise of Freedom, actually a short interview with the architect...

Keystone piece being placed. Notice the second one is already attached to the transition segment (in yellow).

World Trade Center takes Soho turn in main hall

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/04/...ter-takes-soho
Quote:
The lineup for Westfield Group’s central shopping hall within the World Trade Center retail complex, known as the Oculus, is shaping up to have the flavor of Soho, even if it lacks the very high-end luxury tenants of Upper Fifth Avenue.

Retailers such as trendy handbag designer Kate Spade, French fashion brands The Kooples and Zadig & Voltaire, and Swedish designer Acne Studios are set to take locations in the oval-shaped, below-grade shopping hub that will be the focal point of the 365,000-square-foot World Trade Center retail area, industry sources told The Real Deal.

Those tenants add to a handful that have been previously reported to be taking shops in the Oculus, including Apple, Michael Kors, Hugo Boss, John Varvatos, J. Lindberg, Cole Haan and Canali.
A spokesperson for Acne said in a statement to TRD that, “Acne Studios is looking into expanding their presence in NYC, but we have no comments on specific addresses or projects at the moment.” Representatives from Kate Spade and Westfield said they had no comment. The Kooples and Zadig & Voltaire did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nine of the 11 identified likely tenants already have stores in Soho. The exceptions are The Kooples, which is building out a space now in the Meatpacking District, and Canali, which has a store at 625 Madison Avenue and 25 Broad Street in Lower Manhattan.

Other major tenants that are expected to take store space in the mall outside of the Oculus include children’s stores Disney and Lego, clothing designer Lacoste, juice maker Organic Avenue and London-based shoe designer Dune, according to industry sources.

TRD reported this week that three luxury brands, designer Tom Ford, jeweler Tiffany & Co. and one of the Armani Group store concepts were likely to take the limited number of ground-floor retail locations in the project, all with frontage on Church Street.

Correction: An earlier version of this story including a tenant that said it is not going to take space in the World Trade Center retail.

Not surprising, the mall it's replacing was quite successful.

The rents are going to be $500 - $600 a square foot.

That must be gut wrenching to watch as an engineer. It's the last piece that you don't have wiggle room on - any errors in the last placements get tacked on here. And sound of metal on metal while "sliding" in must make them tremble, thinking... "is this where it gets stuck?"

Looks like they got it right.

That photo is from two/three days ago when they installed the first keystone piece at south side. Yesterday they didn't installed the second keystone piece but they installed the final transition segment

Finally had a chance to see this up close. It is really massive, but also rather severe looking. I will be impressed if it ends up looking as light and airy as the renders suggest. This structure will be spending a lot of time in shadow, after all.

From Otie's rendering, should we understand that there will be only 12 little doors (6 on each end) to enter the PATH? Will that be enough?

This was as a conversation that happened on this thread a while back - it was decided they would be enough - but I agree with you, this does seem like a small amount of above-ground entrances for such an enormous building. Seems like a bottleneck/crowding situation could easily happen - which is pretty poor design for a transit hub.

I know theres a ton of entrances underground though - so perhaps they did their due diligence on footfall from above ground.
