Yes. As you all know, 1.3 million sq feet of the 1.7 million sq feet of 7WTC has already been leased with more on the way. I think its safe to say that by the end of the year, the entire 7WTC will be completely leased.

The state of New York agreed last year to occupy over 400,000 sq feet of the Freedom Tower last year, with an option of extending the space to 1 million. The lease runs for 15 years. Also the General Governments Administration has agreed to lease 600,000 square feet also. As many of you all know, a Chinese firm wants to lease over 1 million sq feet of the tower to make it their American headquarters. So basically, to the minimum, the Freedom Tower could be 90% leased before it gets built.

Also the Port Authority plans to move 2000 workers into Tower 4 once its complete. This is the reason why they decided to build the towers going backwards, because they have already secured a lease in Tower 4, and they dont want to keep the future tenants waiting.

However, so far no tenant have signed for Towers 2 or 3, but I will assure you this WILL change


P.S. When the Freedom Tower is complete, nothing will ever be able to bring it down because the security upgrades, and the strength that this building will have is unbelievable. Its like a building on steroids.

There's nothing I can say to you but just to be patient and understand that it takes alot of time and preparation to build a building of this magnitude.

Please don't use caps. 1WTC has one building. But there is also 2-4WTC and 7 WTC.

1-4WTC: From left to right: 1WTC by Childs, 2WTC by Foster, 3 WTC by Rogers, 4 WTC by Maki

I think it was actually lowered since everyone was so terrified, and wanted to leave not only Lower Manhattan but also Manhattan as a whole.

The beams will be erected in that whole just to the south of the core and the concrete. One of them looks L shaped while the other is covered in a white tarp. I think they may have already poured the footings for the steel.
