I just meant that the original plan for the building is cancelled, if they build something in this plot, then probably a new development.

sorry for off topic

on topic: great to see the cladding continue

I wish the vent was going to be that small. It sounds like that vent is going to be relatively large.

Tower 5 isn't cancelled, they just put it on hold for now. It's still in its primary development stage. There will probably be a new design different than the one showed to us a few years back but as of right now The Port Authority isn't focused too much on it because of every other current project going on. My guess is once they get the Vehicular Security Center completed they will have a better idea what to build there. One World Trade Center is their main priority right now and the important thing is just to finish it before 2014.

Schumer presses for GSA lease signature at One World Trade Center

Thu, 2012-04-19 08:26 AM
By: Mark Rockwell

"As the scandal at the General Services Administration over lavish spending by its managers grows, Sen. Charles Schumer pressed the agency not to forget its commitment to occupy space in the offices rising at the World Trade Center site.

Schumer called Acting GSA Administrator, Daniel Tangherlini on April 18 to urge him to finalize the agency’s lease agreement for federal office space at One World Trade Center, which is slated to open in 2013. He said GSA had signed a preliminary “term sheet” over seven months ago and that the agency’s concrete commitment would not only make it clear the building -- built on the site of the World Trade Center office complex that was destroyed in 2011 – was open for business, but would bring the occupancy rate past a vital 50 percent threshold.

The GSA is embroiled in a scandal over excessive spending at a Las Vegas convention by some of its western regional leadership. Congress has convened multiple hearings on the issue during the weeks following the exposure of the expenses incurred at the convention by GSA managers.

The current “GSA mess” shouldn’t derail the timeline for the lease, said Schumer. The agency signed a term sheet for 300,000 square feet of office space in the 1 World Trade Center last August, but the final lease, now under GSA review, hasn’t been signed. Schumer said he hopes to focus attention on the unsigned lease as the leadership at GSA changes in the wake of the controversy.

In his call to Tangherlini, Schumer said the New York Port Authority needs to be able to attract additional tenants to the building and GSA’s signature on the lease would provide momentum for that effort.

“Once signed, the GSA lease will push the tenancy rate of One World Trade Center past the crucial 50 percent mark, providing both a significant psychological accomplishment and a major marketing tool for the Port Authority to attract other businesses,” he said."

one of the 2WFC cams has been adjusted, giving us this dramatic perspective of 1WTC! coincidentally, we can see where the glass curtain wall has finally made a bit of progress on the south face ~
