Actually the view has changed dramatically, Battery Park City to the Right did not exist back then....construction of BPC begun in 1979 after the landfill was constructed in 1976

Conde Nast is very close to signing a lease for 1 million square feet, link, and the same article says that government agencies may lease another 1 million square feet but that may not be necessary given all the interest particularly coming from Asian based companies, but if those deals close the tower will be 85% leased. And I don't believe that they have even put the upper office floors on the market yet because they want really high rents, given the views and such.

Ha, my apologies for being danish We do love our sarcasm but nobody else uses it as much as we do. So for me to be misunderstood here in America is a daily thing

But back on topic. The guides at the World Financial Center still says that it's a maybe with the Restaurant. It is properly just the people who wanted to make a Windows On the World copy with same name and stuff that has backed out. (Do to the sad history of the first WOW people would feel uncomfortable to visit the restaurant).

So they are properly just looking for a new investor. Since WOW was the highest grossing restaurant in the US in it's last years. I can't see the bad investment otherwise than making a complete copy of the original WOW. Hmm, thats just my thoughts.

I hope they do it, because I plan to make another trip to NYC when the WTC complex is finished and eating dinner up there would be awesome. We had a restaurant here in San Francisco at the top of the Bank of America building but it went out of business last year. It had an amazing view of the city especially at sunset, since we are surrounded by the pacific ocean over here in the Bay Area where I live.

The city's got a lotta great construction sites going on right now. Just to think, 1 WTC will be twice the height (and more, with the spire) once it's complete! Great shot Carlos! I'm sure you're even more eager than the rest of us to see this beast topped out!
