It's not ruled out yet, the PANYNJ is still considering moving it to the west of the church in the "plaza" as that's the only place on the entire structure that can support the weight. If it is indeed moved there, it won't happen until the church is complete as construction is in the way.

It likely will someday, and if not there, then somewhere else at the WTC. Even the Port Authority intends for it to eventually return. I wouldn't mind placing it atop the WFC parking garage with a new fountain and garden around it.

WTC Sphere set to move to Liberty Park
http://www.downtownexpress.com/2016/...-liberty-park/

Quote:
Officials at the Port Authority, which owns both the iconic sculpture and the WTC site, said this week that they were working to relocate the battered sphere that survived 9/11 to the new elevated park on Liberty St. that opened to the public on Wednesday.

“My own personal view is that the Sphere belongs here, not in Battery Park and certainly not in an airport hangar,” said Pat Foye, the agency’s executive director, at the park’s official opening on June 29. “We’re working with the families to bring it to this site. I think it will be a fitting place.”

Foye noted that the St. Nicholas National Shrine, the Greek Orthodox church being built at the park’s eastern end, also supports the plan, and his announcement was supported by other top brass at the agency.

Finally, a full walk-through of the renovated Liberty Bridge!

The two revolving doors on the western terminus haven't been installed yet, and there's no large signage for Brookfield Place on the Liberty Park side.

Wow! One can really apreciate the scale of one world trade, church and other buildings from this video.
The park is also looking amazing and it's got a great view over the whole memorial and surroundings!

Didn't you already ask that?

Maybe plans were changed. Maybe its still under construction. Maybe we should wait until someone with more knowledge can contribute.
