I think Nexis tried to describe, that without the past politic and government based disturbances, this tower could be finished by now. So i have understood him.

We all know that, but he's arguing that it could happen again. Which is extremely unlikely at this point. 1WTC is definitely in smooth-sailing mode.

Its a sad state of politics , look at the 2nd Avenue Subway project , held up for decades or the ARC Tunnel just began last year. Should have been done by now. The NYC metro has rampet corruption in Politics , that always holds up big projects. If its a dual state project it gets criticized & redesigned more. Like the WTC site , ARC Tunnel , New Bayonne Bridge..... I wish it would stop , because its starting to really hurt me & alot of people who saw the twin towers fall... We just wanted this tower / memorial to be up by now, but politics reared its 2 heads I'm sorry if some of you think i'm making this up or just being ignorant , but me & alot do see this stalling again. If it does happen by 2013 i'll be very happy , but i'm warning you there's a moderate to high chance of stalling again. So don't get your hopes up , they made at least several of these agreements over the past 10 years and they stalled a few months later. Once this project is done (hopefully 2013 or at the Worst 2017/20) this will show the rest of the world that American can rebuild after such a tragic event.

Looks like 86 is almost exactly level with 86 on the ESB. Not sure if that's coincidence.

Technically it may be, but there may still be possibility of a decision to delay or slow it down.

There has already been talk of WTC4 being put on hold because the infrastruture around it won't be there to open it when it is complete. The same issue may affect 1WTC. AIUI the transport hub etc. are still way behind schedule.

Silverstein can't afford to pay for a building to be built that he can't then open. PA possibly can - but they may decide to slow it down and move resource to other delayed projects on the site.

I'm sorry, but you're just absolutely wrong on this one.

They're not. They will open the memorial for the 10-year anniversary (Sept. 11 2011) and then close it so it doesn't get dirtied up during all the construction.

So, the memorial will be "done" but won't be open long. Until everything is done, of course.
