mall

The mall space spreads throughout the site. The west side portion, the east west connector to the WFC is built core and shell and needs to be fit out. On the east side it is the lower level of the office towers and hub. Current plans call for mall to open when occulus opens, figure late 2014.

New board to oversee creation of WTC arts center

"...The city remains committed to the 1,000-seat theater project anchored by The Joyce Theater dance venue and says a new board is being formed to oversee its creation. The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation has allocated $155 million to the project, which is estimated to cost $400 million to $500 million.

But construction is at least six years away. Ongoing work at the proposed site is dictating the timeline, and fundraising hasn't begun."

I dunno, it is possible. Though I'd say some time later in January is a more probable bet

I definitely need to go to NY during spring or fall. Winter is way too cold to enjoy this city 100%.

It's good to see how I WTC stands above downtown's skyline now

I love winter time in the city. You have to experience it to really appreciate it.

Just a quick question.. do you think the lighting will look similar to the twin towers at night? They looked awesome all lit up with little sections off and on.. I know the currently lighting scheme is probably just temporary and for the workers but I need re-assurance lol. I hope the spire is lit up with some awesome lightshow or something - not tacky but elegant.

Btw its looking awesome! Im so glad New York is moving forward and the skyline is looking better day by day.
