Mhm I don't agree with that. First thought you're sarcastic.. The row that was now finished had already started before Sandy arrived..

When will glass top out on 1wtc? Why has progress been so slow on 4wtc? 4wtc should already be fully completed as it is shorter and less complex than 1wtc. Could the radome be considered in the future once the broadcast antenna goes up? Did they already assemble the radome? The radome was part of the master/original plans & I would hate to see them never incorporate it.

Really? All he did was post a rendering of where the Twins would have stood in relation to the new complex. He said nothing about wanting twin buildings. Jeeze.

I thought the comparison was cool, quite informing, I think he was just showing comparison as well.. Good Render.

Is Wikipedia's January 2013 date for the completion of the cladding accurate? Or is there an estimated date from a more official source?

I apologize if it's common knowledge and something that regularly answered on here. I should really know, I check up on these forums almost everyday!
