There well probably be alot of floors still undergoing tenant fit out at that time but the Tower well be finished and open.

Go to this website, click on the WTC Site tab and scroll down to almost the bottom of the page. ( The Transit Hall contracts are near the top of the page.)

http://www.panynj.gov/business-oppor...s-awarded.html

Do you really think all these company's are going to risk losing money on there contract due to late penalties because they didn't spend a little more money to get there contract finished on time ? Or worse, risk defaulting on there bonds !

http://www.attny.com/gci32djd.html (Some lite reading if anyone has trouble falling asleep at night)

The PA requires that company's provide performance bonds on any contract over $1 million. Only the largest company's can survive defaulting on a performance bond. (The work still gets done, by another company.)
Like i said , they'll never finish anything ontime in this region private or public projects that why i'm skeptical that it will get done on time.

Great shots, really gives an idea of the size there. Looks just a bit under half the height of 7WTC!

I would guess the red vents are part of the HVAC system, or emergency smoke removing vents. They must all be on the less photographed north side of the structure.

I have no clue about that overhang steel on the corner...

5WTC was supposed to be a 42 story tower for JPMorgan Chase. They cancelled
Then it was supposed to be a performing arts center by Frank gehry. They cancelled
Then there was speculation that NYU would use that site for a new building. They said no.
Now the LMDC and the PA are saying they do want offices there so the hunt is on for an anchor tennant.
