That's a major reason why those that harp on how much better WTC1 should have been should hold off, because in a decade 2 and 3 will be added, and each bring a unique look along with 4 and perhaps a residentially oriented WTC5. Up to five towers reclaiming the skyline where the Twin Towers once stood. It will be utterly breathtaking, particularly a lit WTC2 at night with those gorgeous diagonal roofs.

In the article that Otie mentioned, it said that "the passenger elevators are not yet operational," and that they had to use the external hoist.

My source is telling me there are still a couple of bugs to fix and poor weather has also slowed progress this week. I don't live in NYC, so I haven't kept up with their weather, so I'm not sure if it was rain, or low clouds, or what exactly. Regardless, I would expect it to be very soon...like a few days.

That will be the final touch to the external section. That and the base facade.

I really love the building but does anybody know when the building is going to be opened officially, because Wikipedia and the building's website are useless.
