Model I made of the New WTC.

Comparison with STR's Old WTC model.

If you want to built it you can check it out in the Scale Model Section http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...174305&page=52

Btw I've followed the new WTC for years, so exciting to see so much progress

If close you mean by two more years then yes.

This model is not realistic. The original WTC with the antenna reached 527 meters, while the 1 WTC reaches, with the antenna, 541 meters.

In this model, the old WTC seems to be higher than the new WTC.

I was for sure that it would be completed and opened by the summer of 2013. Are you telling me that it's been pushed back to 2014?!

Actually I think the Port Authority is aiming to get 1WTC open sometime in 2114...
2WTC should be topped out by 2215 and the museum will be ready by... oh who am I kidding, we will all be fossilized and converted into petroleum before any of those greedy morons forks over any cash to get that one done...
