It must have been a minor thing, it's back up.

Late 3rd quarter or early 4th quarter 2010. The base curtain wall and the office floor curtain wall are two different contracts.

The base curtain wall can't go up untell the protection walls are in.

Are you sure you see granite, are you really sure. The reason I ask is because they have just started waterproofing the north pool.

Thank god. I was hoping it was just waterproofing and not the final granite. Too dark of a color (basically black) for the memorial voids.

BTW, Zen or NYatKnight or anyone else, do you know what color granite they are using for the pools? Different renderings show it as everything from light blue, to blue, to almost purple.

Eventually all four towers will be built. Here's a nice video of the site:

[QUOTE=kittensandpuppies;54765209]The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics
By Francis Scott Key 1814

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's...


I bet most people didn't know there is more than one verse.
It sure would take too long to sing it all at a sports event.

Nice to see this building is rising fast. Of all the buildings
under construction right now, this one is the one most are waiting for!

I did! Did you also know that Francis Scott Key's famous great-nephew was named after him? You would likely recognize his name as F. Scott Fitzgerald.

OK, that was OT.

So, I found that the WTC site has a Q&A page that has some basic info on One WTC, if anyone is interested.

New York still does have a special distinction though. There are 12 rats in New York City for every person living there, and OPEC and the Muslims can't take that away from you!
Ah yes, the deadly Islamic Coalition. How could we forget.

Has anyone done a render of the new buildings from the east river? I just used a model on google earth to get a rough idea of how it would look, and i thought it was terrible. 3 wtc akwardly obscures 1 wtc, 4 wtc is very simple from this angle, and 2 wtc looks out of place.

dont get me wrong, i love the new plan, but I wish it looked better from this angle. Especially since this is the most photographed angle of downtown manhattan, and the side with the brooklyn and manhattan bridge.

I'd be very surprised if that side remained the most photographed after everything is finished.
