I don't post often on this forum but I do read it every day, your input here makes you come across as a narcissistic, condescending person.

This forum isn't your 'playground', people have as much right to post here as what you do.

You might feel like you are an important contributor to this forum but I am yet to see this side of you.

You can like or dislike Dino's comment above but without a doubt he is one of the most important contributors to this thread and many other. He shares a lot of knowledge about this construction and posts many pictures. In fact, he is kind enough to accept and post pictures that I take but cannot post due to not having a photo account.

Again, I can understand why you may not like the above comment but lets not be too thin skinned about things and drive away the people that make this site so invaluable to many of us.

All the best.

So is 1WTC fully let?
Could be good news for the other towers

Also has anybody got any images of the old one world restaurant? As I understand there will be no restaurant space in this tower?

Thank you
Tom

Maah, I just tried to be funny and sarcastic at the same time, but I guess it went wrong..But those screenshots from the games are kinda childish and I see people getting too excited about the games here..
No hard feelings..

From the screen shots above, WTC 2 is taller than WTC 1 minus the antenna.

Looks like the demise of the USA, perhaps the 10th anniversary of Obama attack?

Furthermore, the core of the tower consists of steel-reinforced concrete stairwells which would be the ideal place to seek shelter in if a tornado was approaching. Obviously most of the windows would be blown out and the tower would sustain moderate damage from flying debris, but it would remain standing nonetheless.

Bearing that in mind, a strong thunderstorm, potentially a supercell, will bear down on lower manhattan within an hour or two.
The 73 story Westin hotel in Atlanta Georgia was almost directly hit by a tornado a few years ago. Just glass damage to that skyscraper.

The government leases aren't fully confirmed. Durst has said he would like to keep the top half floors available for higher paying tenants. The lower floors would've most likely gone to the government agencies, but Conde Nast is taking those.

hello,

sorry for my bad english. i am following this forum for quiet a while because you always get to see new pictures of the progress almost every day

i am curious, do you know when the next 2 floors will be up? it seems to me, according to the livecam @wtcprogress, that the 2 new floors in the cocoon dont get filled or in other words, it looks very empty. maybe the construction are stopped due to bad weather??


thanks,

greets
from germany
