that clutter will stay until 2 WTC begins construction. My guess is if they don't get funding in time they will create a bigger fence which blocks the site from view on ground level. Fulton Street will eventually be completed to run under the wing between the HUB and alongside the site of 2 WTC.

you can see what it looks like at ground level here:

Oh no, I don't have access to addendums. Those boxes may be part of Westfield's request to modify Oculus for special events, maybe special lights. This side of Oculus plaza is going to host several public events, It makes sense to believe these are special fixtures, but I am not sure.

they will probably modify the rafter for that fix. mostly due to the fact that the work can be done on the ground as opposed to the air.

Brokers Divulge Westfield WTC Retail Details
BY TOBIAS SALINGER 10/16 4:17PM

A rendering of the retail component of the WTC transportation hub. (Port Authority of New York & New Jersey)
Despite the fact that World Trade Center retail developer Westfield Group has yet to announce any tenants for the retail component in the Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus transportation hub at the WTC site, the hub will open fully leased next year, a trio of CBRE retail brokers predicted earlier this week.

The global shopping center company that bought the eventual 440,000 square feet of retail space planned for the transit hub and towers 2,3 and 4 from the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey for $1.4 billion is looking for tenants who can offer omni-channel retailing, the new trend in which stores offer customers the ability to purchase products through a variety of mediums and devices, as well as a unique customer experience, the brokers said at a briefing for the media at CBRE’s Midtown offices.

“They want to create these prototype stores that are different from what normal stores have to offer so that they’ll draw people down there,” said CBRE executive vice president Amira Yunis.

Westfield has included an omni-channel requirement in its leases for the WTC spaces, said Ms. Yunis’s colleague, CBRE executive vice president Richard Hodos. Although the fact that the spaces won’t be larger than 14,000 or 15,000 square feet means that the large-scale department stores popping up at nearby Brookfield Place and elsewhere in Manhattan won’t emerge from Westfield’s WTC spaces, Westfield is planning a mixture of tenants marked by “diversity,” Mr. Hodos said.

“It’s really a story of a wide complement of retailers who do luxury and retailers who service the office population,” Mr. Hodos said...

So the south side has now caught up and passed the north side. The south side at one time was 7 behind the north. 5 more south and six more north.
