There has to be a way to access the PAC from the West Corridor of the Transit complex too.

NYC deserves better for a proper grand performing arts center than a box named after someone who makes a living off cutting costs. Maybe Barbra Streisand will resign as chair before groundbreaking or conducting any degenerate events, and honor her promise to leave the country this fall? When that time comes, maybe this atrocious proposal is scrapped for something more imaginative. Calatrava did the Oculus and is currently doing St. Nicholas, so it's logical for him to continue the magic.

No freaking way this site needs another white, ribbed Calatrava building. The hub is amazing but the church should have been designed by somebody else, for variety.
This is an elegant and characteristic design that works great with the rest of the complex. If you hate it, it's your problem, you can fulfill your performing arts needs somewhere else.

If you actually saw the renders of the church, you would know it's not a white ribbed building.

REX is a barely a second-rate architect, and the only characteristic about the proposal is that it's a boxed turd with no context and characteristics whatsoever. It's supposed to be place of public assembly on extremely sensitive land, yet it feels like forces cherry-picked the most insulting architecture and representatives.

The PAC should not have an individual's name on it regardless of how big the financial gift is to get it built. That's not charity its egotism, and egotism has no place in that part of Manhattan.

Demolition has started on the PATH station entrance itself, but only very minor things have been taken off. They removed the small antenna and some clutter off the roof. There is also a large crane on the north side of the site.

They also took away 2 big temporary AC units that were on the ground on the Vesey Street side (that's what the big crane was for), and moved a construction trailer over to the WTC2 site.

No, that would be too logical, intuitive, and convenient. Instead, we'll weather the elements whilst queuing up. And a unique view of the beautiful expensive plaza from the upper floors? Nah, too distracting...

The video features a massing model. Here's a link because when I try to embed the video it says: an error occurred (when you play the video).

Initial impression, I'm not a fan. This one looks a bit simplistic for my taste, just a square with a marble facade. I suppose it fits in with the modernist complex well and is unobtrusive. Still find it a snooze.

Seem's there could be a delay!

I was wondering why demo stopped. Looks like there's an issue between the Port Authority and LMDC regarding money owned.

The PA is being greedy. That's not even newsworthy...

Maybe they woke up and realized the newer design would make visitors fall asleep out of boredom at the sight of it before they got through the door?

Oh I love the design. For me it fits perfectly into the WTC. Would love to go in there for a show someday, just for the sake of going in there.

Does anyone have an update on the discussions (if any) between the Port Authority and the LMDC?

(BTW, I just noticed that earthcam updated their archive images this afternoon (May 4).)

I see a crane -- a fairly big one!

Just installed on the north side of the building site.
