9/11 Ground Zero: why has its rebirth turned sour?
Maybe Rowan Moore should do some research? Tower Two isn't on hold, as far as I know, and it won't take 10 years for WTC2 to be completed. And such a weird caption for the 1WTC picture, the "Freedom Tower", as he calls it, isn't nearing completion.

More good WTC news
Last Updated: 3:35 AM, July 30, 2011

More Print
Just weeks after Conde Nast, one of the world's top media companies, agreed to become the anchor tenant at 1 World Trade Center by renting a million square feet comes word of another critically important development in the rebirth of Lower Manhattan.
Westfield Group, the Australian-based builder and operator of major shopping malls worldwide, has forged a deal with the Port Authority to bring high-end shops and restaurants to the rebuilt area around Ground Zero.
As part of that effort, Westfield will contribute $612.5 million toward constructing 365,000 square feet of retail space, in return for a 50 percent stake in the development.
Given Westfield's proven track record, that sounds a like a good deal all around.
Indeed, it will mean a significant upgrade in the quality of the area's retail businesses that existed before the tragic events of 9/11 a decade ago.
The agreement still must be ratified by the PA board. But kudos to all, particularly Executive Director Chris Ward, who is making impressive strides toward creating a new reality at the World

Will the new WTC have more floor space or office space than its predecessor (not counting the not-yet finalised 5 WTC)?

Thanks

Just want to say thanks for all those who put this photos, I appreciate it (and I'm not the only one). I love to keep in touch this way, the city and the progressing of the Freedom Tower.

old wtc complex had 6.6 million sq ft where as the new one has 4 million more at 10.6 million.(this doesn't include 5 wtc but it has the old sq footage for wtc3 so its probably a little bit less but not far off)
