oh thank you..................

anyway if I stand corrected Silverstein and Port Authority have until tomorrow to decided what to do with ground zero. Their 45 days is pretty much up. If they don't come up with decision, then panel will decided what to do with a site.

Anybody know what today is? The eight and a half year anniversary. That in and of itself isn't significant, but anyone who has been following the progress on the memorial knows that construction really began (except for a few columns that went up a couple days earlier) on the 7 year anniversary (September 11th, 2008), and it was announced that the memorial would be open in exactly 3 years. Today is the halfway mark. It's been exactly a year and a half and we have exactly a year and a half to go.

So, it's up to you to judge for yourself whether you think they're on schedule... whether or not it looks like half of the construction is done. In just a year and a half, they've made HUGE progress on the memorial, nearly all of the steel and concrete is in place. I'm hoping that exactly 6 months from now, they will have 100% of the steel and concrete in place, which would leave them a full year to do the final landscaping and tree planting and whatnot.

Still alot better than it looking like this and maybe they could move tower 3 to where tower 2 was supposed to be so there wont be a depressing gap


I actually wouldn't mind this skyline

I would vote "No" to moving T3 to T2's spot. Let's hold out for T2 to be built. NYC is filled with old office towers that will be unsuitable in the coming years. Their will be demand for newer "green" office space eventually. NY's vacancy rate is around 10 or 11%. Most cities would kill for a rate like that.

I wouldn't worry too much. He/She just likes to get on daily and make multiple inane comments.

It may have someting to do with the fact that it is 5 feet from the nearest street and has buildings within 2 feet of it on 2 sides.

I think it looks best in the pic without tower 2. Tower 2 is way too flashy for not being the tallest building on the site and it is screaming look at me architecturally. All of the other buildings have flat roofs which go with the the old towers theme. The focus should be on tower one and how its New York's new tallest building they have ever had and is one of the tallest towers in the world. Tower 2 needs to be a little more anonymous while still being and extremely nice building. Call me crazy but thats just what I think.
