I'm also curious. Will the lobby actually still be at street level or will everything start above the concrete base?

The antenna on the old WTC1 provided coverage for television networks etc from memory. Will the new antenna/spire also serve a similar purpose?

From what I know the lobby will be at street level. As to the spire, yes, it'll serve as a broadcasting antenna

NOT SURE IF EVERYTHING WILL BE READY IN 3 DAYS

1st picture
1. Will road lanes be straightened and sidewalk ready to walk until 9/11? What is in those two new building next there?
2. Will this are be ready until 9/11? What are all this holes, it's like that for a very long time?
3. Will this be paved with asphalt and cleaned until 9/11?
4. Will this be paved with asphalt and cleaned until 9/11?

I doubt much of the outer edges of the memorial will even be finished by this time next year...

I don't think they said the streets around would be finished by 9/11. Just the momorial and the 1000ft 1WTC.
That building in the 2nd pic is the PATH terminal and it wasn't there before. It's temporary.

yes I don't think the streets will be done, they just laid those as temps, there are others sites that give a great view of it all and it does look somewhat confusing on where you enter and exit, but that is to be expected since it still is an extremely large construction site.
