Would work if the WTC was in Times Sq. but the tower faces a memorial to 9/11 victims. There would be epic opposition.

It's bad enough that the "sacred grounds" will be waterfalls, reminding visitors that NYC was too afraid to rebuild what was lost.

I would like to see the complex energized with the level of energy found in Times Square. Making it a destination would accomplish that.

Now the holes in the first row of cladding make sense. they´re there that they can clad the podium.

We can have a thriving economic success -- if we were to have something as huge as an Apple store, I'd imagine it to be near Century 21 -- somewhere along Church Street.

As for the WTC site itself, we need the open space for social gatherings.
I'd like to see a WTC sponsored free WIFI hotspot in the plaza.

I'm pretty sure they're having stores and other retail areas in the bases of towers 2,3 and 4 (maybe 5) which will attract many people (and probably include an Apple store at some point.)

It's going to happen.

You show me a city anywhere in the world where you have 5 Apple stores that are always packed with crowds.

Thx for the Updated Graphic Kanto, I follow this thread every week but I normally do not post, however I have to mention that your graphics along with the posted photos by you or other members always help me figure how it looks since my last visit to NYC...
