1WTC beginning to have a presence in the skyline. Taken on my iPhone yesterday (2-6-11) from the Christopher Street pier in the West Village.

I usually don't quote pictures, but I just realized something cool. The mechanical floor ventilation slats near the top of the structure look like 11s. In fact there are 9 sets of the "number" 11 near the top. 9/11. Kind of a neat way to subtly pay tribute.

Just like the positioning, I'm sure that's just a big coincidence.

^Those aerial shots from the west are so amazing.

It really gives a sense of how big this project is, moreso then any of the renders (sorry STR)

Fantastic shots and also a great render! Well done...

I was just noticing that the Deutsche Bank building seems to be finally deconstructed. Has there been any decision about what to put there in its place?

Edit: I see on the previous page people saying that no plans for the space have been finalized yet.

^It's the future site of 5 World Trade Center and the underground vehicle entrance to the WTC site. What form 5WTC will take, what its use will be and how tall it will rise are undecided at the moment. It's not even in "proposed" status. The vehicle center is under construction already and will cover the northern half of the DB site.

(Sorry for the slightly blurred pictures, at night with no tripod it can get tricky! )

Amazing pictures everyone! Since I am sure you are not rewarded for posting these on here, I guess my thanks will have to do! So, thank you, your time and talent is much appreciated!
