I suppose it will be definitely completed and occupied by the 15th anniversary of 9/11 in 2016?

Well from the second picture by ChiSkyline's Renderings above, the sides seem to be lightened, because they have this blue effect to them, not sure what that is about but, and in the day light will reflect from them, the entire building will shimmer and reflect, it will be incredible!

Thought I should show everyone this! Although everyone thinks the economy sucks, many cities are starting construction comebacks in the US. And unsurprisingly NYC is #1 with 17.2 billion dollars in construction starts. That is about 7 billion dollars over #2 on the list, Dallas Fort Worth. Things are looking good for NYC!

Watching the visualization can not wait for the creation of the complex. Although the tower is my favorite 2wtc.

It looks stunnig. It's not too high, though. These photos made me realise that it's gonna look great when finished. Can't wait to see it done.

These renders look so real! I think this is one of the most realistic renders that I have come across
