Yep. The other side will look great, too, with the Beekman tower in front.

I'm sure this has been asked and answered before so sorry in advance, but for the life of me I can't find any details. Does anyone know when the facade will start? It looks like it's almost ready to start. Thanks

I think it's due in Q4 of this year? Could be wrong though. This thing is made of so much steel that I've almost forgotten about the facade as part of the construction process haha

OK, this may have been asked before, but now that these structures have been mostly built up I figure it is appropriate to ask again: what are the 2 box-like concrete things on the west side of the site? I heard they were for the ventilation systems or something, but they're freaking HUGE. Far taller than a person, and big even by regular building standards.

Here's a pic:

Great to momentum taking place on this beauty. I personally love the design of this building as like all great buildings its geometry and general shape looks simple and angular, however upon closer analysis reveals itself as a complex marvel of engineering.

This building appears to be so well engineered I don't think the US Government would be able to bring this building down unlike its predecessors...

Could somebody please ban this troll? Permaban, preferably. There is a time and place to discuss things of that nature and this thread isn't it.

It's going to look quite skinny against those fat buildings around it.

... Ah and it resorts to name calling, grow up.

I haven't been to the site since December but I remember just thinking of what a logistical nightmare it must be on site. Building a high rise in any dense city is a major challenge, however with six skyscrapers and the memorial being built in such close proximity, all linking underground and to the PATH Station; I'd say this is the most challenging construction site active today.

Well what did you expect? No one here takes kindly to that kind of bullshit. So you're either a troll or completely incapable of making posts that won't piss people off (I guess there's not a big difference there)

Godzilla is more likely to facepalm at the feeding of trolls.

Bullshit? I was just merely pointing out the original 'official theory' pushed into the collective conciousness is a conspiracy theory. I guess the physicists, structural engineers and architects that have produced peer backed reviews and essays criticising the official theory are just publishing 'bullshit' ?

Before you attack me with I'm disrespecting family members, just research Manny Badillo, John and Bev Titus and Luke Rudkowski and listen to what 'the last survivor' William Rodriguez has to say.

Here's a pic:
The structures being built in the western portion of the Memorial Plaza adjacent to Route 9A are vent structures. They will serve the dual purpose of providing ventilation for the Transportation Hub and Museum, while also providing access for materials to get below ground and possibly light concession on the Memorial Plaza.
