Ok, stop the RIP and troll messages here. Let's focus on construction and the project.

Better link a thread to leave RIP messages, as everybody has the right to do that, and its something noble and right.

I have been watching the rebuilding ground zero programme, it really shows how massive this building is

Cool to see some views from the memorial (and not just areal), looking up on 1WTC and its surroundings.

The grass and ground plantings are very nice. Only wish there was more of it and a little less paving.

I felt the same way too as did many people who were hoping for a large green early on in the design process. But two things: the original WTC plaza was almost entirely pavement with very little plantings and remember that there will be 20,000-40,000 people working in the WTC and WFC complexes, along with huge traffic going through the PATH Transit Hub as well as visitors to the memorial. So they made those compromises. The cool thing about the first photo is that this is how the WTC will be seen and photographed for generations, as being towers above a large tree canopy.

I'd also like to know. There's a lot of conflicting information of 104/105/108, but most "official" info says 104.

Except all the saved tridents I've seen had their aluminium cladding removed after being preserved, rather than from the collapse. Anyone know why they did this? That cladding was what made the buildings glisten.
