3WTC needs to go back on hold until Liberty Park is completed.

Leafy Refuge in Liberty Park for Residents Annoyed by Construction

"...A small bit of hope has arrived, in leaf. A 15-foot serviceberry tree was planted Monday as the first in the new Liberty Park.

The elevated park is a bit more than an acre, on the rooftop of an entrance structure leading to the trade center’s underground vehicle security center. It is bounded by Liberty, West, Cedar and Greenwich Streets. The park will share the rooftop with the St. Nicholas National Shrine, a successor to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which stood on the site until Sept. 11, 2001, when it was crushed..."

"...two serviceberry trees and a honey locust were already sitting in small pits at the southwest corner of the rooftop park. The officials had only to toss a few shovels full of lightweight manufactured soil — compost, sand, loam and water-absorbent aggregates — into the tree pits. Then they were done.

Mr. Plate said he hoped the park would be open early next year. It is to have 54 trees. The honey locusts are for shade..."

"...Ms. Moore, meanwhile, sounded grateful but not optimistic. “Any greenery we can get, I’m thankful for,” she said. “But as soon as the park opens, the Greek church will go into construction and we’ll start all over again.” "

WTC's Liberty Plaza Finally Starts to Look Like a Park
Liberty Park doesn't look like much, and that's because it's not much—at least yet, with its handful of trees. After years of planning, the greenery is finally arriving at a roughly acre-large site bounded by Liberty, West, Cedar, and Greenwich streets, just south of the plaza's reflecting pools, the Times reports. The elevated park will cover the top of a 25-foot-high entrance to the World Trade Center's vehicle security area. With the park will eventually come Calatrava's St. Nicholas National Shrine, which will rise on the site of the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church that was lost on September 11.

The elevated, linear park will provide a footbridge between Battery Park City and the Financial District, and also have ramps for easy access. When complete, the $50 million green space will have 54 trees and room for people to sit and reflect, according to the chairwoman of Community Board 1's quality-of-life committee. As soon as the park opens around early 2016, work will commence on Calatrava's awaited church.

Parts of West Street are closed tonight and Bay Crane is finally on site to begin removal of the temporary entrance connector.

Not much more greenery, but a nice angle..

I wonder why they did not start with St. Nicholas church in parallel.. now there is ongoing construction work when the park is already finished

It won't begin till the end of the year or early next year, after the park is finished.
