I like all the other renders, amazing find. And this picture is amazing! Can't wait for the trans-hub to rise. But One thing that disgusts me is the surface lot! Why the hell would we make surface lots in Manhattan on the site of the former WTC? That's 20 steps backwards. Make an underground parking garage, ban cars, do whatever you have to do to not waste space on an ugly surface lot.

To be fair, that lot isn't on the WTC proper, it's on the plot of land occupied by the Millenium Hilton across the street.

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!
Actually, that slideshow shows us down dramatically from last year, and even below '09.

Still far ahead of others, but not exactly a banner year.

I want to visit NYC at some point soon to take some skyline photos. However I dont want to visit until this building is externally complete. Does anyone know when that is likely to be?

thanks for the info, thats a shame I was hoping to go much sooner than that. I guess the other WTC buildings will be visible stumps by then so maybe I will postpone going for a few years until i can take pics similar to the amazing renders on the prevoius page

I had a feeling someone was going to make this comment. As someone else said that isn't the WTC site, plus that's is not what that stretch of street looks like at all. It almost looks like they completely removed the Millennium Hotel from that render. If you Googlemap it the intersection is Fulton and Church, and the block has a loading bay that you can see on Fulton St, but nothing like the size that's depicted.

In reality, the loading bay really only extends to the first car on the left in the render, and all the other parked cars on that block would in reality be either in the lobby of the Hotel, on the sidewalk, or half in the hotel and half out.

I imagine they did that because if they used the actual street scape a chunk of the Transit Hub would be obscured, and that is a really good angle. But yeah, if you stood in that spot, that's not what you would see at all, you'd at least partially be looking at the back of a hotel lobby. There is no parking lot there. They just put it there so there wouldn't be anything obscuring the view of the Transit Hub.
