Sounds like someone was a little bit confused...I gues he/she meant typical residential floor at 10ft and typical office floor at 13ft?

Guys, this has been covered an absurd number of times over the course of this thread. The powers that be have decided the base is 20 stories tall, that's all there is to it. This has been confirmed by people who know what they're talking about.

So give it a rest already, right? I mean, who cares about the floor count that much (except of course for the diagram makers and people like Culwulla)?

There is only one floor count that matters !!!!!!!!!! The rest is just a number on an elevator button.

New York City already has a lot of incomparable and awe-inspiring spots.
(Despite the fact that this is the site of 9/11 tragedy) it will be another truly awesome and monumental spot in the city.
I can never get bored of NYC...

Do you think the memorial is any good? I think it has to be one of the more well designed & thought out memorials in recent times. We have a 9/11 memorial in my town for the people lost who lived in bucks county, pa. It's fairly simple and straightforward, but very well thought out and poignant. Water is involved with 2 identical fountains in a reflecting pool, and there are several pieces of the structural steel. I feel this "where it happened" memorial is like the large version of a lot of the smaller ones around the country.

1 wtc is a fitting modern tribute to the original wtc, even if the design and look of the building is radically different. You have the joy of those lives represented in the structures reaching for the sky, and the sorrow of those lives lost represented in the water falling into the basins.

Having lost friends that day, and being in a relationship with a woman who witnessed it across the river in nj, someone who's teacher opted out of sending her class to a college fair that morning at the wtc, seeing this building make so much progress after such a dry spell of any visible developments is very meaningful and i share in your pain, even though i did not see it unfold in person. I miss those buildings too, a lot, but progress is being made, and that is a good thing for me, and for others wanting that gaping wound healed.

I believe when completed this will be one of the major tourist attractions in the world. When I say major I mean one of the top 10 visited places in the world.

Wow, love the transportation hub design and flow. The memorial museum also looks fantastic. I am getting emotional thinking about a future visit.

I wish there was a video like this of only 1WTC construction.

is this true?

Quote:
The spire will be an intense beam of light that will be lit at night and will likely be visible over a thousand feet (305 m) into the air above the tower. New York City is a suitable place to set such a light pointing towards the sky without complaints of light pollution by astronomers, as the night sky in locations near New York City is already far too bright for serious astronomical observers.

if not, than what is the current plan for the lightning scheme?

It already is a major tourist attraction because people from all over the world have already been coming here to see the site. The original World Trade Center had thousands of tourists a day so this one will have the same effect.

From the HK999 post above

"Cable-net facades on all four sides of the buildings, again designed by Schlaich Bergermann, measure 60 feet (18 m) high and range in width from 30 feet (9 m) on the east and west sides (for access to the restaurant and observation deck, respectively) to 50 feet (15 m) on the north side and 70 feet (21 m) on the south for primary tenant access, activate the building at street level."

Was this originally written in another language? I can't clearly figure out what it will look like based on this description. Cable-net facades?

Great video, i'm sorry it seems to exclude 2 and 3 wtc, and what's up with the deutsche bank building, is 5 wtc going there, or is 5 wtc going to be the performing arts center or 6 or what?

I'm happy happy happy to hear the WTC transit hub will have retail, right now all that's there is a exposed-to-the-elements hudson news location.
