From what I understand, the shiny black stuff, is waterproofing and the light grey bit that is just going on now, are the concrete panels that will line the floor of the memorial fountains.

Quick question. What's the current height to width ratio?

(Width from corner to corner, not diagonal)

Yes, you see rain has been known to fall once every few decades.

Yes, but the view of the ESB goes bye bye in about 3 weeks. It looks like you could still just barely see it from that window when the twins were still standing. I'll bet that was a view!

The twin towers were so simple but yet so impressive. I would prefer to see them back there.
The new buildings are beautiful too... but it will never be the same.

Condé Nast to Move to Skyscraper at Ground Zero

The New York Times
By CHARLES V. BAGLI

Condé Nast, the publishing giant, has signed a tentative deal to move its stable of chic magazines to ground zero, where it will anchor the skyscraper now under construction, according to two real estate executives who have been briefed on the negotiations.

The deal to bring Condé Nast to the building once known as the Freedo m Tower would signal a remarkable turnaround for a project that had been considered a marketing nightmare. The 1,776-foot-tall skyscraper will be the tallest building in New York when it is completed in 2013. If the deal goes through, employees of Condé Nast — publisher of Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Vogue and 15 other magazines — would move in 2014 from their current home in Times Square.

A new set of twins can be built in a different place all together. Whether they do or not, who knows? If so it would be even better yet. The best thing is, is that Lower Manhattan will be getting its rightful tallest building back with its restaurants and observation decks.

But the two executives, who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the pending deal, said that Condé Nast would take up to one million square feet in the 2.6 million-square-foot skyscraper.
That would mean over 1/3 of the total office space. Great news.

The best part is that the more of this building is occupied, the more other potential tenants will have to go for space in the other towers instead, further securing their future.

I can tell you, they'll be no Twins in Lower Manhattan. At least not the old ones. I'm sure someone going come behind and say they've got plans for Jersey. Right now all the supertalls are in Mid Town, even if some are less super then they are tall. I'm just happen this part of towns getting some back.
