When is the grand opening of WTC One?
Looks like they are taking the elevator system down and finishing the cladding in east side.

Mid to late 2014 I'll say.

And the external elevator will stay so Conde nest could fit out their floors.

Count down to Sep 11 begins today.

But why does the facade of that verizon building bother me so much. I feel like pulling my eye-brows out every time I look at that white exterior in a shot of lower manhattan....

It's because it's dirty and nobody's bothering to clean it. I'll bet if it was pure white far fewer people would complain about it.

I think it would look a lot better if it was reclad in a style that does not stray too far from the original design, similar to how the First Canadian Place in Toronto was reclad. Maybe add wider windows, too.

Thanks OnePointWest!
I think I wanted to thank you for the post no. 49238 back then, but I missed the humble opportunity. I think now is the time. Thank you! I even printed them out!

Yeah, recladding it should be one of the top priorities in beautifying the city. That thing is just such an egregious eye-sore. sigh.....

The building hasn't even had its first proper wash yet.

So what is this talk of recladding for?

Edit- Wrong building. Sorry, though you were talking about 1 WTC....

Both 1LP and the Verizon destroy good views of the wtc.

To roof height, yes. 432 Park (1,398) is under construction and 225 W 57th (~1,550) is prep. Also, the GCT rezoning could allow for even taller office buildings than that.

@Chibears85. What in the Sam hell is wrong with you? You been drinking Molly water or what? If you ever do that again, I swear I'm....

Naw man, I'm just kidding. Pretty funny actually. And the upside down spire was priceless, but those colors make me think of those Donk Cars that ride around on 48" rims in colors that should be banned or illegal

I got my laugh for the day. Pretty funny man and have a good Labor Day
