Calatrava's Arch's

Hello! First time poster but long time lurker, I have a question about the arches in the previous posts, where are they in relation to the Freedom Tower and what kind of traffic will pass though them? are they the entrance to the tower or part of the transit station? Thanks

They are right next to the Freedom Tower (on the south side), and are used to connect the World Trade Center to the World Financial Center. It's all part of the transportation system. It's not an entrance to the tower and it's a retail area so only people on foot will use it.

It should not be confused with the the hub terminal, but it is all connected underground:


This building is on the other side of the site, in the middle of WTC Tower 2 and WTC Tower 3.

Thank you, so the street on top will be West Side Highway.

Yes, West Side, and an extended Fulton Street, which isn't even there yet.

It becomes easy to see even with the masterplan from years ago.

The Calatrava Hallway would be directly under Fulton St.

I understood that technically speaking anyway Towers 1, 3 and 4 were officially in construction, and that Tower 2's status remained at "Proposed"?

The design of new WTC is ok, but here is something that I would like more:

Imagine this tower at 1776 ft.

A combination of Old Word Trade Cennter, Chrysler Building and Empire State Building.

Chongqing. But rejected (they already have a tower that screams New York)

That building looks likes something off of sim city. It really doesn't have anything to do with this tower but it's nice none the less.

Any pictures of this from the ground? And its not going to be 2 years until 3WTC reaches ground level. That will be 2009, which happens to be less than 5 months away. Spring their saying. although I wouldn't be suprised if its delayed, YET AGAIN. This is going to take forever to top out, look how long there is between each pour! 1WTC is a very nice building though.

I like the top, but the rest of the building is boring.

All these renders of the new WTC are boring and without life of their own .... It was a mistake when SOM took control over the hole plan. How come we went from greatness to the below average and boring designs..??? Where is Daniel Libeskind....???
