They'll open it for the 10-year anniversary and then shut it back down so it doesn't get screwed up during construction.

I wonder how folks would even access the memorial plaza. To the north Fulton Street won't be finished. Greenwich St certainly won't be available. The area surrounding the Pavillion will no doubt be blocked off. To the south there is major VSC construction activity. That really only leaves the west side. But how would anyone get there? Perhaps another temporary bridge extension?

What a joke. I hope heads roll next summer.

I appreciate the thought but I think the design is rather simpleton. Almost cheap.

You've probably seen this render, which is very unflattering for 1WTC:



This render, however, shows the site with more or less proper dimensions, and you can see more clearly the subtle "New York" elements of the tower. Most obvious to me are the angled lines that converge at the top of the tower and continue upward into a spire, which is of course something you would ever seen in any asian city. The roof also contains subtle hints to the design of the twin towers. But my favorite aspect of the tower as a whole as that it completely changes depending on what angle you look at it. It appears to be fatter and somewhat rounded from the angle in the render below, and straight/thin with clear triangular elements from the render above.



I think 1WTC is about as New York as you can get while still retaining a modern and international look, and aside from you, just about everyone else agrees. The entire site (with the memorial and all four towers) is meant to be taken as a whole rather than each building individually (as it's supposed to evoke a feel similar to the Statue of Liberty). It's a design that takes some getting used to looking at the renders, but I think the world is in for a big surprise when it's finished. It will assuredly be stunning and iconic when it's all finally done.
Amazing that six of those buildings didn't even exist on 9/11/2001

They have certainly come a long way from the days of just an empty pit. We'll have to see how far they are 12 months from now. But whatever part of the memorial they are able to open up in late '11 or '12, won't be very peaceful or serene.
