The "south bridge" is on Liberty Street and will not only remain there, but will be connected directly to Liberty Park atop the Vehicle Security Center. It will thus soon no longer be a "bridge to nowhere" as it was when it was constructed.

The "north bridge" is on Vesey Street and will almost certainly be dismantled, as the underground passage linking the WTC Concourse and the WFC will replace it.

Each of the WTC buildings except for 5WTC and 7WTC will be seamlessly connected underground as far as the public is concerned (the underground network is even more extensive for service workers and security), and will also connect directly to the WFC and PATH. The WTC Concourse will have several direct connections to the IRT(1), IND(E), and BMT(R) subway lines, an indirect connection to the Chambers Street station (A/C), and direct access to the Fulton Center via the Dey Street Passageway, which houses eight additional subway lines (2/3/4/5/A/C/J/Z).

i found this video on youtube, and if you go to minute 7:33, it shows the wtc at night with the glass completed, thought id share it never saw it from this angle..

I think the apex of 2WTC should be elevated to 1,362 feet (I'm sure you all get the significance).

3WTC and 4WTC (and the entire complex in general) will look far more comfortably situated once 5WTC is erected (won't happen anytime soon, but it will happen eventually).

I think the roof should be 1,362 feet because it would be a humiliation if it would reach 1,362 feet only with cheating

The pregnant/beer-belly tower

I know it wasn't designed by him, but it reminds me of the Libeskind "placeholders" from 2002-2006.
