When will Tower 2 and 3 be built.
In that diagram it looks like Tower 2 and 3 have not even reached street level yet.
When will that happen and will it be soon.

If that one steel column makes 1 wtc 926 feet then it is the 22 tallest building not the 24 otie.

Thanks ken, now I know it's name I've just looked it up on wiki. That's one ugly clock, though it must be handy for the office workers. Half of new york must be clockwatching on that thing.

It is a famous clock in NJ that faces NY. Used to be part of the old Colgate plant if I am not mistaken.

Dont get me wrong guys. But, the recent updates and the knowledge how impressive LM will look in lets say 5-6years if everything works out with 2 and 3 WTC makes me think, that the loss of the former WTC is an esthetical WIN. I used to hate the WTC design a lot, but since it's progressing so well now, and you can get an idea how it all will look like when finished makes my jaw drop.

Hopefully the other downtown biggies will be build too, like 50 West, 99 Church, 111 and 90 Washington street (the latter with a redesign hopefully) and 78 trinity place.

Along theese projects, there is the east river promenade redevelopment thats going on and the transformation of the Water street into a kinda avenuelike street.This all with the two new transportation hubs, will make LM the best business center on the world.
