The last time I checked, President Obama wasn't relevant to 1 WTC. :P

To bring things on topic once again, if you zoom in above the Winter Gardens, you can see 1 WTC. Taken from Jersey City on April 1st.

I was thinking the exact same thing while I was there. :P Maybe it's because technically they're in different states.

Anyway, cladding starts Q1 2011, right?

Q3 2010. We'll probably start seeing glass in late summer.

1WTC is just about as tall as the tallest in my city (hideous blue and gray box):



Driving east on I-69, I have one hell of a time picturing the base of 1WTC in place of that building. That really drove the scale of this project home for me.
