1 WTC is progressing very fast, at last , that's very good news.

Breaking News: the mosk project to be finally moved! Therefore, no Coran to be burnt on 9/11. Everybody's happy then...

By the way, do we have any clue as to what will replace that infamous Deutsche Bank once it's finally dismantled?

I hope 1WTC glass is better than 7WTC. It's nice but The Shard has set a new standard in optical clarity and flatness. The reflection of the clouds in 7WTC looks so wavy.

The wavyness of 7 WTC in that picture isn't because of cheap glass, it's due to the way the facade panels are installed.

Yeah, 7WTC's glass is extremely high quality. I'm not sure why it looks so wavy in that pic. It's stunning in person.
