Does anyone know the significance of the layout of trees? I noticed that there are quite a few areas without any foliage.

Here is a layout of which building goes where:
I'd add one to two years to all those dates.

I think the Train Station is placed wrong? Its on the other side of the property form the Temp one and i think the Temp is going to become the permeant one , at least the location.

The northeast corner of the memorial plaza will be mostly open with no trees and a cobblestone floor, to allow a space for anniversary events to be held (for a stage, bleachers, things like that). There will also be a smaller opening in the trees near the southwest corner. Look at the renderings for a better idea of the openings, that model is just a model.

Also I did notice in the model though that the corners of the memorial pools are chamfered.

No your wrong they build it there because it was the only place to building it. And the Pa runs WTC because once upon a time it was on the port edge of the harbor. Ok that part might not be true but it sounds good. Oh nobody cares about Jersey. And nothing I said was wrong I just finish what you half ass started. That's all but anyway those models look much better then the once 60 minutes used LOL.

The slab you see in the pic is about 6 feet below the level of the Plaza. The hatches well be buried under about a foot of soil and grass. I just hope some idiot doesn't plant a tree on top of them.


Copied and pasted from another forum I am a member of.

oh I really like the fact that you can see how tall tower 1 has gotta in those pics. For some reason, I keep thinking I'm going to see someone say we still have time to start over again, like they did last year I think it was on MSNBC but it was most likely Fox News.

The original plan was to build it over the approach tracks to Penn Station on the west side Mid Town, but New Jersey screamed to holy hell for good reason.

Giving away my age again.

Any of you who are truly interested in the history of the former WTC should read City in the Sky: the Rise and Fall of the World Trade Center, by New York Times reporters James Glanz and Eric Lipton. It's quite comprehensive about the pre-construction and construction stages, particularly. I highly recommend it.

My post wasn't my opinion on what I thought happened, it was based on facts that i personally researched and read myself. Your arguing against documented factual information.

Then when you think about it, there will be a building for each No. from 1WTC to 7WTC. One World Trade Center "Freedom Tower", Two World Trade Center "200 Greenwich Street", Three World Trade Center "175 Greenwich Street", Four World Trade Center "150 Greenwich Street", Five World Trade Center "130 Liberty Street", Six World Trade Center Marriott Hotel "Next to 175 Greenwich street", and Seven World Trade Center. Then you have the performing arts center of course next to One World Trade Center Plaza.

Time will tell.......

There is. It's the museum.

Yeah I saw that. But considering the fact that when the last progress report came out and said that the base would be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2010 (end of March) everyone here was surprised that it would be completed that fast, and then shortly afterwards there was a quote by someone saying that it would be completed by the end of February and everyone thought that that was impossible and just wishful thinking, and THEN it turns out that they actually completed it by mid-February... I really can't complain that it can't continue construction for a few more days. They deserve a break.
