Hey - Im a little lost with this project. Can someone fill in the gaps for me? When are they due to be complete?

1 WTC - almost finished - complete September 2013?
2 WTC - street level ?
3 WTC - ? foundations - I think 2015?
4 WTC - almost finished? - summer 2013
5 WTC - ?
6 WTC - ?
7 WTC - Complete
Hub - Halfway.
Museum/Memorial - Partially complete - ?

I think that the complex, with the fountains, memorial and 1WTC looks perfect so far. Build quality is amazing and the architecture stands for itself. However, for me it can't be judged until the whole complex is complete.

Hmph, good question. All the deadlines are completely open to debate because delays are so common in this project. They are pretty much our daily bread and butter. I think that 1WTC will open for 2013 Xmas, 4WTC probably a few months earlier. 3WTC and 2WTC depend solely on whether an anchor tenant will be found and 5WTC and 6WTC don't exist for now.

Looks like the Empire State Building moved to downtown in this pic.

So hopefully it will be completed within a year, if it doesn't get delayed too much that is. Maybe even that is optimistic seeing how often these kind of skyscrapers run inte problems in this part of the world.

2WTC is still onhold and not rising. no chance it would be finished by 2015 even if it would resume by tomorrow. as sad as it is

I love this skyscraper, but for some reason 2WTC makes it look better. They look much better together, I love 2WTC and hopefully it gets built. Could someone please post the previous antena design?
