What is going up there at the future site of 5WTC? The location suggests that it is the place where the core of 5WTC eventuelly will be, but I highly doubt that is it. Does anyone know more about this structure?

No I meant the concrete structure on the left side of the photo, with the scaffolding attached to it. The church will eventually be built near the ventilation shaft on the right side of that photo, where the (green) rebar is sticking out.

That is another ventilation shaft, there will be 3 shaft towers that will pop out of Liberty Plaza, and a fourth inside the church.

Awesome renders! That church is a beauty. Do you know if it's getting built simultaneously with the park or it has it's own schedule? If yes do you know when construction will start?

Santiago Calatrava team is stil finalizing some details of the church design, both are independent projects. Liberty Park is being designed by T.B. Penick and Sons and the church by Santiago. No particular date or deadline for church construction, the park is being finished by Tishman.

The team plans to use backlight stone for some of the church surfaces, it is still being reviewed.

Interesting archive of photos I found over the internet.

The NYT published a note back in 2008.

From NYT
This photograph reveals how different the neighborhood was before the World Trade Center project. Now I understand how logical it was to have a church within a residential neighbourhood.

What they did has no name.

Quote:
Mr. Koutsomitis, who is also the chairman of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity on the Upper East Side, said that the church’s design was incomplete, but that in keeping with Greek Orthodox tradition, the doors would face west, with the altar at the sanctuary’s east end, and that there would almost certainly be a dome, although not a “Byzantine extravaganza.”
Wow, alot has changed since then.

Still wonder where the Citibike docking station locations will be inside the WTC complex. They'll want to put at least a couple large banks of them in places.

Oh, I almost forget, no Sphere on Liberty Park. There is a spot, though, just north of the Church entrance plaza that can support the structure if PA heads change of mind.

Bridge will extend all the way to the nortwestern corner of the elevated plaza, just adjacent to the stairs.
