The colored bulbs are more expensive than regular ones, but Amabile said the cost was worthwhile.
When it's about the WTC rebuilding effort, you hear these kind of comments a lot.
The main tower is really getting shape and the cladding is a thing worth waiting for.
Although the picture looks on the pictures a bit too reflective, perhaps it's the angle.
It looks like there is a lot to get done at the Twin Towers memorial.
Sure they make progress and I really hope the construction workers can get the job done, but it is far from finished!

Bank of NY Mellon axes plans to move
Calls off search for new 450,000-square-foot home; bank had looked at 1 World Trade Center and had talked to Larry Silverstein about his towers at Ground Zero.

Much to the disappointment of the city's big landlords, Bank of New York Mellon Corp. has called off its search for roughly 450,000 square feet as it opted not to sell its headquarters at One Wall Street. “We are no longer exploring relocating our corporate headquarters in New York,” said a spokesman for the bank. He said after conducting a search, the company failed to find a deal that met the bank's long-term needs and made economic sense.

BNY Mellon's move is noteworthy because it runs counter to brokers' nearly universal insistence that this is a great time to lease space because rents have fallen as much as 50% from peak levels in third quarter of 2008. With vacancy rates and availability rates starting to slip, brokers say it is only a matter of time before rents begin to increase.

Still, it is unclear how much the bank was willing to spend or how much it wanted to make from the sale of its building. Like all banks, BNY Mellon was hurt by the financial crisis, although analysts suggest it weathered it better than some of its rivals.

Back in the spring, when the bank announced it was considering selling its One Wall St. headquarters, experts noted that most potential buyers would want to convert the 50-story, 1.2-million-square-foot property that was built 70 years ago to residential use. Meanwhile, the bank tapped Jones Lang LaSalle to lead a search for space.

Sources said it had kicked the tires at One World Trade Center and had also talked to Larry Silverstein about leasing a portion of one of his towers at Ground Zero. New buildings, however, typically charge much higher rents than older properties.

A spokesman for One World Trade's leasing agent didn't have an immediate comment, and Mr. Silverstein declined comment.

Right, they're going to tear down the entire construction sight and start over from scratch, wasting billions of dollars, all because some loony toons made a petition on the internet. Oh boy.

Why are there people who are still living in a world of their own and keep dreaming of things that will never going to happen? And don't say: You'll never know what will happen, because that is just so!!!

they're just trolls, just ignore them. Can we expect the place holders to be taken off once the second row of glass is finished?
