The tall building on the left of that photo is on the buildings Citi is considering moving its HQ to. Hopefully, they chose 2 WTC.

World Trade Center's Underground Passageway to Open Thursday
http://<b>http://www.dnainfo.com/new...-open-thur</b>

LOWER MANHATTAN &mdash; Pedestrians trying to cross the busy West Side Highway near the World Trade Center will soon be able to make their way underground.

The long anticipated World Trade Center west concourse, an underground walkway linking the WTC site with Brookfield Place at Vesey Street, is slated to open Thursday at 11 a.m., the Port Authority announced Tuesday.

The passageway will connect the WTC PATH station, which has an entrance at West Broadway and Vesey Street, with the new glass-enclosed Brookfield Place Pavilion across West Street, which is also opening for the first time Thursday.

The 8,000-square-foot pavilion, supported by two massive steel lattice towers, will have six escalators leading to the underground passage, along with revolving doors opening to West Street.

The pavilion and passageway will eventually lead to the much-anticipated Santiago Calatrava-designed $3.9 billion WTC transportation hub and the nearby Fulton Center, which are both still under construction.

The pavilion is also part of Brookfield Place's $250 million revamp of the former World Financial Center buildings, which will include high-end retail shops and dining.

cladding progress on the east base, looks like they're also making good progress on the southern entrance.

MY friend said that "the freedom tower's already completed". And he also thought that there was only one building in the new world trade center, which shows how clueless some people can be. Good thing eventually I proved that there were at least 5 buildings in the WTC complex and that the "Freedom Tower" doesn't have tenants.

But we can't blame them. It's really not their fault. When the whole complex gets completed (or at least 4 WTC and 1 WTC) it's going to be all over the news. Then the new world trade center will be a household name and world trade center enthusiasts wouldn't look so crazy.

Anyway, I can't wait until 4 WTC gets completed, 1 WTC's antenna will be evaluated (on November 8th, so mark your calenders!), 3 WTC starts construction (which I'm almost certain will happen in January), 1 World Trade Center gets completed (which I really don't think will happen until March or April), and 2 WTC gets some tenants (which I guess we're going to wait for).

Hello everyone! I've been following the progress of this building for almost a year now and I thought it would be a good idea to finally join! I know I can't wait for the day when this magnificent building opens and tenants move in. 2014 looks to be an exciting year!

And anyway, I'm posting this for my 500th post. I was asked not to do this every 50th post by a friend, so I'm only doing this for my 500th post, 100th post, a few heights of buildings (like 1776 posts for 1 World Trade Center), and 2000, 3000, and so on. Also, I'll be doing 541 posts for 1 World Trade Center and 555 meters for Lotte World Tower because it's a fun number! And 600 for the megatall height, and 900 for the "hypertall" height.

And by the way, I got this from two pages back, and I have NO IDEA what happened to 4 World Trade Center. This actually happened with a couple of renders, actually.
And my 666th post to commemorate the Beast, my 730th post to commemorate two years worth of days, my 777th post to commermorate Jesus, my 808th post to celebrate the MetLife Building, my 850th post for the GE building, my 851th post for the GE building if it was one meter taller, my 852nd post for the GE buildings height if I was on top and counted as a spire, my 870th post for the Beekman Tower, my 871th post for my credit balance that's overdue, my 894th post for the number of times I've flashed my genitals to old ladies at Wal-Mart, my 915th post for Citigroup, my 977th for 4 WTC, my 1,046th post to commemorate the Chrysler, my 1250th post for the Empire State Building, my 1251st for the number of calories in a banana-mango smoothie at 7-Eleven, my 1252nd post to commemorate 24 x 52.1667, my 1253rd for the number of times I've posted about posting. Stay tuned!!!!!11!!

The base has turned out to be one of my favorite aspects of this building.
