Although this comment of yours was completely useless, considering the fact that another member already answered the question, I wanted to say that I think member Robertwalpole came up with a project for the Deutsche bank location a while ago. I can't find it back but I'm almost entirely sure it has nothing to do with the WTC or WTC5.

I noticed that it's answered after I wrote this comment..

As far as I know, they had plans to build something there (I think I was reading something about Performing Arts center on that site once)..But that was just an option..This building should have big strong foundations so they can build tower there in the future if it's needed..But nothing was decided yet..

That's what I read not so long ago..

44th floor..So that's 506' 8'' or 154,432 m...

It's taller that Barclay, UN Building, Sheraton, New York Hilton Hotel, CBS Building and 4 WFC too...

June 21, 2010, 5:00 pm At Ground Zero, a Step Forward on Performing Arts Center
By ROBIN POGREBIN

At its board meeting on Tuesday, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is expected to approve an agreement under which it will be reimbursed by the city for the cost of building infrastructure below the planned performing arts center at ground zero. The construction of footings and foundations for the arts center has been estimated at $44 million. The authority, which owns the World Trade Center site, and the city have said that they are expecting that money to come from a $50 million fund controlled by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation.

“They have committed very publicly to funding the early action work that needs to happen,” said Andrew Winters, the director of the Mayor’s Office of Capital Project Development, in an interview on Monday, referring to the corporation. “We expect them to follow through with that.”
The development corporation has been working toward an alternative plan: moving the arts center to the Deutsche Bank building site at 130 Liberty Street, which the corporation owns and where it believes the arts center can be built much faster and more cheaply. The city has argued for the importance of honoring the original master plan for ground zero, which calls for a performing arts center in the area bounded by Fulton, Greenwich, Vesey and Washington Streets — the architect Frank Gehry was selected in 2004 to design the building for its anchor tenant, the Joyce Theater, which presents dance.

The Port Authority’s plan to address the infrastructure issue “is a tangible sign that the Performing Arts Center is moving forward,” said Linda Shelton, executive director of the Joyce, on Monday. “There were a lot of skeptics that this wouldn’t happen, but this is a great step forward.”

In 2006, the Port Authority agreed to a swap that gave the performing arts center site at ground zero to the development corporation in exchange for the Deutsche Bank site, which it planned to develop as commercial space. Before the arts center could be switched to 130 Liberty, the Port Authority would have to agree to such a swap.

The Port Authority and the development corporation declined to comment on their expectations for Tuesday’s meeting, which is titled on the agenda, “Reimbursement Agreement for Early-Action Design and Construction of Below-Grade Structures and Common Infrastructure for the Performing Arts Center.”

Ok. Well, don't get me wrong but I get the feeling that you are the one that knows everything about the project, you're answering everyone's questions like you know all about it, you're saying stuff like: 'I just saw a new truck with steel' etc. And that's coming from someone that's living in Croatia. (Yea sorry, tracked your ip) So what are you doing then, 24 hours a day checking the live webcam? Sorry if you find this offensive but I just wanna know where I'm standing if I have to believe everything that someone from Croatia is telling us about a project located in NY.

This is the story..I'm an architecture student..I have plans to move to the New York City...This is place with incredible architecture, amazing people, etc. I was amazed by the old twins, as much I'm amazed with all this stuff goin' on there now..Specially with Tower One...So I'm saving all the pics of this construction, watchin' webcams and reading infos and articles..I'm tryin' to learn about this prject as much as is possible..It helps me studying about architecture, to understand construction process..And at the end it would be nice to have all those photos show them to our children one day, just like we watchin' black and white photos of old wtc construction..

And no, I don't watchin' webcams 0-24..I'm workin' a lot on my PC so I'm online all the time..That's how I see that much..

Why I'm tryin' to answer to questions? Because people wanna know..And if I know something about this, wha not to answer...
Everything I'm postin' here is mostly from other forums and some things I'm noticed and worked out by myself..If I'm not sure about something, I wont post or I will say "I'm nit sure about it" ..

This is my story..

I went out for a walk on the Williamsburg Bridge tonight and for the first time I could see the tower cranes from WTC1 from the bridge.
