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.
Thanks so much for clearing that up! Had I known this was supposed to be Church and Fulton it would've made sense that it's not this big. I always g down there, and never really even noticed the loading dock. For some reason I thought this was going to be a parking lot at the Vehicle Security Center. But now knowing that they just made it bigger to add to how much you saw, I'm much happier. Once again, thanks for clearing that up! I remember when I used to go down to the WTC site and there were surface lots everwhere, heck the new goldman sachs HQ was a surface lot before that building. Glad to see they aren't reverting to that again.

There was some dispute about a Steel Company which was providing WTC Steel which caused the construction to slow down.

Has that been resolved?

Wow, only two more jumps to go. Anyone think the next jump'll happen within the next two weeks? Also, is the communication ring split into smaller pieces? It'd almost have to be, wouldn't it? Since its so large..

¿The observation deck in the ONE WTC will be a terrace or with windows?

I did not. I posted in the threads of towers that are linked to the future skyline.

Any info when the cladding finally continues?

Fireproofing takes place ca. 7 floors above the current cladding level, I don't see a reason why they're stuck on this level for so long..

Small chance it'll all be done by 2020. Tower 2's crane is being removed this weekend. I don't expect it to restart for another few years. The Performing Arts Center probably won't start until 2015 or 2016. And who knows what the plans will be for Tower 5's plot.

Long ways to go still.
