Or better chance of it being built in Miami

Does anybody know why on SSP the spire was updated but it's title as America's tallest remains the same?

in other words, about the same chance of me modeling the entire tower and putting it in one file. it takes about one minute just to save the base, which will be rendered and posted when I'm done. don't expect it before October.

What really sucks is that none of us know,, exactly what will happen to this site,, will 3 be built as of now, or what that status of 2 will be, and will 5 ever be built? It would be nice if "us" skyscraper fans had answers by an insider, or whoever else may have the facts! Just, I mean I'm frustrated, It really sucks, for all of us just speculating, when, or what time this will happen.. I as well, as probably all of "us" would like to hear FACTS.. Of what will happen to 2&3WTC as well, as what will happen to the Antenna or Spire on WTC1 ,, and If 5 is even planned, to go forward? Sorry everyone that's just my thoughts, I would Love to see this whole site built as Planned, and brought forth to us "the interested People, who Care in the US"..

Few things:
WTC Musuem is opening in 2013.
4WTC Is opening in mid-late 2013.
1WTC is opening late 2013 - early 2014. NOT late 2014.
3 and 2 WTC will be opened BY 2019
5WTC should be opened BY 2023.
And rumors have been going around that the Performing arts center will be renamed to 6WTC.

Can't wait until that cladding becomes striped for the mechanical floors! It's good to see some progress on the glass. Maybe it'll be roof height by December

Here's a sneak-peak, before I add spray-on fire proofing, concrete sealant/paint, office cladding, landscaping, trees, internal stone work, and eventually lights, if someone tells me the name of a decent, free rendering program.

Explain as to how you arrived that 5 WTC will open by 2023?

And what does it mean when they renamed Performing Arts Center to 6 WTC?

Are they gonna construct a building instead of that Center?

The Museum has around a year's worth of construction of left. If they don't get their act together by end of September 2012, then the Museum won't be ready until 2014.

4 WTC will open in 2013.
1 WTC will open in late 2013 or most likely spring 2014.
Transportation Hub will be in late 2015, most likely September 11, 2015.

3 WTC should open by 2016.

2 WTC and 5 WTC are up in the air but hopefully should be complete by 2020.

How can you compare side by side on skyscraperpage? I still can't believe the size difference!

1WTC: Between November 2013-February 2014
4WTC: October or November 2013
Museum: Spring 2013 at best/early fall at worst
Transit Hub: Spring 2015
3WTC: Mid 2015 if it doesn't go on hold(unknown date if it does)
2WTC: It's been said most likely around 2017
5WTC: Won't be happening for quite sometime

Yes there have been talks about naming the PAC 6WTC IF it gets built. This is coming directly from an extremely reliable source...take it how you will.

Nothing would be scrapped except the PAC IF it came down to that, but none of the towers including building 5 will be trashed. Yes 5WTC is nothing but a backthought right now but it will happen.

The top field in the diagram search section lets you search individual buildings. Just find out their exact name in the SSP diagrams and then type them in there with a comma between each other and it will display them

If it were built elsewhere, it wouldn't be over an active railway, or need heavy bomb-proofing, and there would have been dozens of horrible deaths. Get over it. Yes, there have been delays, but this building is designed to last.

+1. Also, great work on your modelling of the base.
