Calatrava's work is very obvious in this last pic.

Nice to see some progress, the only thing wrong with this tower is the Orwellian name, and the fact that its missing its twin

Yeah, I would rather have a twin tower too.

Will people just get over the fact that theres only one of this, not two. Times move on, the originals are no more. End of.
When is the next crane going to be erected?

The white arches aren't structural are they? just there for design.

I liked the twin towers, although they did not blend in with their surroundings.

These new towers are more significant because there are more of them and they vary in height and design (which is a much welcome concept).

Also, consider the addition of other nearby towers being developed to make the new Lower Manhattan a new and improved skyscraper experience to enjoy.

The outside of the twin tower might have been out of place with the rest of the city. But the inside was a work of art. Their isn't to many building with a lobby as sexy as the old WTC.

the FT is actually above ground now! I was there today, and the superstructure/concrete work is about 7-15 feet above ground!!!

WTC 3 isn't even started yet! It will be at least two years before it reaches street level. WTC 1 (Freedom Tower) is the only WTC building that has started construction.
