The Freedom Tower will be topped out by 2010, and opened in 2011.
The same goes for WTC Tower 4 and WTC Tower 3.
Tower 2 and Tower 5 wont't be topped until 2011, and they will open in 2012, maybe 2013 for WTC Tower 5 if more delays hit it.
Out of all of the skyscrapers, the Freedom Tower will be the first supertall to be topped and opened.


2008 and 2009 are the years of the climax of construction. It's going to be beyond what any of us have seen before. I can't wait to go inside the tallest office building in the world.

I'm not quite sure about the layout of the site so can someone tell me if this diagram is right?

The green being the core of the building and the blue being the building outline surrounding the core?

La Freedom Tower es el símbolo de la tenacidad estadounidense frente al mundo que lo rodea... Nada mas que eso... Sus valores esteticos son nulos en comparación con el proyecto original del WTC... Los edificios 2, 3 y 4 son individualmente hermosos, pero juntos conforman una ensalada de dudoso sabor... En fin... Todo es causado por el maldito (?) terrorismo (?) que hizo que se necesitaran construir estos edificios...

Pfft, if you ask me, Freedom Tower's aesthetic values are on par with that of 2IFC, a building that couldn't be any more amazing with its form of simplicity. As a whole, the New WTC blows away the old one, yet people are going to whine that all the buildings don't work together, but in a few years once everyone is used to it, and, by the way, everyone will get used to it, they will think of it as the most amazing cluster ever. People tend to be biased towards FT, especially foreigners, like the ones who hate the name, yet fail to understand the fact that it has three different names. The Freedom Tower name isn't going anywhere and, without a doubt, it will be the most popular name, so if you can't accept that, tough. Furthermore, I'm sick of hearing people saying stuff like, "it should have been 3,000' tall" and whatnot; news flash: the project is concrete and adding useless statements ain't helping.

On the Silverstien Props. website, they put up the date that 99 Church Street will be completed - 2011!
I thouht it would have taken at least to 2013 because of the old building in the way. 99 Church Street is right by 7WTC, so for it to really stand out, it has to be at least 900 feet tall to the tip. I really hope he makes it tall (please make another supertall, Larry! ) because it's such an amazing tower and I'd hate to see it eaten by the massive new skyscrapers of the WTC, current towers in the area, and perhaps Beekman.

Does anyone know if the current WTC plan of 4 towers will surpass the old WTC and other demolished buildings in Office Space and combined cumulative height of all the buildings?

It certainly seems that way, and I hope so we have to feel like we are moving forwards not just compensating for what was lost.

It's obviously higher and just a little more office space than the old WTC when you add in T5.

This is the largest office complex in the world.

Of course it will slowly grow on people. The first stage (shutting up nay-sayers and whiners that were against construction) is complete... (TalB's & companys' contributions to the forum have since quite subsided)

The Freedom Tower is the symbol of the American tenacity front to the world that surrounds it... Nothing but that that... Their esteticos values are null in comparison with the original project of the WTC... Buildings 2, 3 and 4 are individually beautiful, but together they conform a salad of doubtful flavor... In aim... Everything is caused by damn () the terrorism () that caused that they were needed to construct these buildings...

Croat, if the name causes you to not like the tower IMO, that's pretty...um shallow. There are three different names you can choose to refer to the tower by like, 1WTC and if those still piss you off well, sucks for you.

It is so good to really see visible progress accelerating, can't wait to see construction in a few more months!

I don't like you because your name is Croat.

Can you possibly suggest a nickname so that when I hear it in the future I won't be filled with contempt?
