Well it's 8/2014 now. What does "Beneficial Use" mean? That trucks will be going in there to make deliveries to T4?

That means we should be seeing them opening the Liberty/West Street intersection any day now!

Is the sphere going to be placed somewhere? I hope that it gets put in its original spot. It would look so different because of its surroundings, but it would just be so emotionally powerful.

No location for it has been announced yet! It certainly would be a shame and if it doesn't return to the site.

The long term plan still is for 5 WTC, when it rises, to integrate Liberty Park into its lobby/1st Floor right?

Will these ventilation shafts be left as they are when the park opens or will they get some sort of stone or glass facade/covering? The renderings are fairly bland and don't show much detail when it comes to those in specific.

The sphere is not going here. There is a spot near the church plaza that can support it, however.

One of the ventilation shafts (The one in the left background in Oli's picture jut above) is actually incorporated into a corner of the church building.

Unless you have some new information from someplace this isn't going to happen! They have not committed to putting the sphere here or anyplace else for that matter despite public opinion otherwise!
