DesignerVoodoo, that's how it was today in Linden, NJ, slush, heavy but melting snow, but things are taking a turn for the worse.

Like the first Mariott Hotel (which was built as the Vista International ) any new hotel would probably wait until after the complex is finished. Hotel developers time their properties to come on line once there is sufficient traffic and business. They might project a start two years or so before the WTC is finished so they can open simultaneously. Another possibility is of a redesign as Silverstein has hinted at, of WTC 2 so it could have hotel floors. But I guarantee nobody would want to spend the money just to open a hotel in the middle of a messy construction scene.

Wow, I just realized that it's been 17 years since February 26, 1993 (the first attack on the World Trade Center). I wonder if there are going to be any memorial services at the site today, however small.

That would not only be one of the most awesome places for a hotel in the city, but the possibility could perhaps even be a salvation for WTC 2. Its future seems obnoxiously unclear right now. If they do that, it could be the highest and most visited hotel in New York. Imagine having a private "Windows on the World" view... The stepped floors at the building's crown could be rendered as balconies.

Here is a new timelapse video from wtcprogress.com. Great footage of inside the memorial and close ups of jumbo column installation.

Thanks for the replies about hotel part. I hope we will get to see a new hotel going on this area someday.

Great video! I agree with bbtrain72, that is one of best timelapses so far!

Yeah I love that video. It took me forever to figure out where in the heck that fantastic shot from inside the "museum" is located at. I literally had to go back and look through the photos taken by morongiello from March-May 2009 as the museum was under construction but I finally figured it out. There were three levels (each about 13' tall) built below the taller (about 20') museum level which will be between the two pools. Towards the north end, the third floor slab was left out which allows for the chiller plant. So there's the bedrock level, and then on the floor slab 13' above is where the camera is, and then the next two levels are open, and the ceiling above is the floor slab for the museum level. The camera pans south to north.

I know this is probably TMI for most, but if you've been following the construction literally every day for the past three years like I have and feel like you know every column and every beam in the museum, it's frustrating when you see such a fantastic shot which shows just how far along the museum is with the concrete and sprinklers and vent shafts and everything and have no idea where it IS in the museum. I wish we had more pics from the museum. I bet the Great Hall is fantastic at this point.

What you see 27 seconds into the video is the Chiller Plant.

Yeah I've seen the timelapse before on the wtc progress site.
It really shows the progress that this site had this year.
But there is just one point that I don't like about the video: the background music.
The background music sounds a bit 80's?!

Cool video. the music could be more corny though. Makes it sound like an 80's instructional video.
