Didn't mean that as a crack at you. I know the article said that.

According to STR, that million feet is their share of the building, meaning it includes core and mechanical spaces. That means actual office space will only be about half that. Makes a little more sense that way.

There are no firm plans for the WTC 5 site yet.
WTC 2 & 3 should be at street level mid 2012
The green square is where the above ground part of the memorial will be.
The pink line, or Greenwich street, will be for cars.
The red square is planned for a performing arts center. If or when it will be built is a little fuzzy right now.

I won't be offended at any corrections. I'm used to them.

Supposedly, when they build the performing arts center (I believe where the current PATH station is), it will be called WTC6.

This may be outdated info, though.

1.) There are no plans for 5 WTC as of now but I can't see any real distinction between the two squares. If 5 WTC gets built, its likely to take the whole plot of land (both "squares").

2.) The building in the red square is the current PATH station/terminal.

3.) 2nd-3rd quarter 2012

4.) 2012-2013 (I'm not exactly sure). The green square is part of the PATH councourse, specifically the mezzaine area with the signature Caltrava arches and the Vierndeel truss.
It will probably be completed somwhere around 2012 (again, I'm not exactly sure).

5.) The "Pink mark" is going to be an extension of Greenwich Street, and obviously accessible to cars.

6.) Once again, that is the current PATH station. As of now it is clearly above ground, but once Caltrava's station gets built it will get redundant and probably deconstructed.

If WTC 5 gets built, it'll probably occypy the "lower" square (south):

Yes, that's right. My mistake.

From the map you can also tell that the Performing Arts center will be built where the current PATH station is now.

As a construction worker/ Plumber, I dont like the fact that they are using the green mold tough grade drywall near the urinary,sink, toilets area. The proper material to use in that section is Durock aka cement board because its stronger, more water resistant, tiles stick to it better, and with the thick Benjamin Moore paint or the bear paint thats latex primer and paint mix, painted on it would look just as smooth as would with sheet rock.

On a positive note, in 4 more floors, two more netting rises, Tower 1 wtc will be within the top 10 tallest buildings in NYC, so with that being said once it reaches the 70 th floor, I will consider the tower to be a giant.

well Dry Wall is the name of the material we call sheetrock. see the name sheet rock was the name of the family who created the material known as dry wall. Now drywall is made with plaster with fiberglass strings running through it to give it that holding strenght allways with the paper on the outside to be painted on and to help protect the plaster in between the paper. and the United states sizes of the dry wall can come in 4 feet by 8 feet by 1/3, 1/2, and 5/8 inches think, as well as the 4 feet by 12 feet panels as well. Plus as what you see in that picture that i commented on theer is the green paper verion of it that is mildew and mold tough and you would put that where thats is damp and humid areas of your house or in this case buildings.


Now with Durock, durock is made from a conqrete with fiberglass stings in it that keeps it together as well, but with durock it does not hanve a paper around it. you are able of put tiles work on it, plaster on it, compound on it, paint and etc. and in US sizes in 3 feet by 5 feet and 32 inches by feet feet panels.



Nw the reason why i said that i would have used durock instead of drywall due to the fact that with durock when treated its a better water proffing, stronger and will last longer in bathrooms then with drywall. and with better water proffing then there is less of a chance that there could be a leakage from the floor above to the floor below thus forth saving the Building management money in materials and in man power.

Agreed. Someone goofed on the square footage. Still, 20 floors IS a lot of floor space.
