I think that last photo confirms that the building will look a million times better with 2WTC alongside it.

On its own, 1WTC is a tremendous design. But in situ, it looks narrow and weirdly out of proportion. I think when 2 and 3WTC are complete, it will 'nest' better in Lower Manhattan.

Walked through the site today, they were putting up the "ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER" letters on the South entrance overhang. Not too impressed but it's also a sign, but we'll see how it looks. All that was up was One World when I passed.

Not yet. We still need 2 and 3 WTC built.

For those asking about the building being cleaned, half of it has been (the west side). Durst scheduled this to be cleaned twice a year.

In other news, they are still aiming for an opening date of October 27th. Fence removal around the tower is slated to begin the 15th, of which the Vesey frontage will supposedly be open by then.

Heres the link for that image... I couldn't do it correctly because I wanted to make the photo bigger than the author had it to match the quoted photo.. but he still deserves his link.
