In Japan there is a law that an old church cannot be relocated. Instead it can be raised so lots of skyscrapers have old churches right on top of their roofs. Maybe it is a way to go here as well. And since the church is no longer there the building an look normal without this horrible bulge in the mid section.

Can't they just put a religious practice within a skyscraper? Trying to recreate old architecture can be architecturally disastrous.

The dispute on the church is settled, but nothing new on 5 WTC..



The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America today announced an agreement regarding the rebuilding of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The agreement, signed today by Port Authority Executive Director Chris Ward and representatives of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and St. Nicholas Parish, permits the rebuilding of the Church with a nondenominational bereavement center at the east end of Liberty Park, at 130 Liberty Street. The agreement follows a four-month independent engineering study commissioned by the Port Authority and the Archdiocese, which found that the Church could be built on the site with minor modifications to the original plan and with no impact on the World Trade Center construction schedule.

But that has nothing to do with the church.
I have no problem with the priority on WTC 1, 2, 3, 4.

They should either remove the cantilevered part and make a box like 7wtc (but keeping the slanted roof) or build it as a stump. The current design sucks and looks overly expensive.

I quite like the cantilevered floors, but if they were the reason it wasn't being built then I'd agree, they should be removed and a box with a slanted roof should be built. However, they're clearly not the reason.

Good job bumping a building that's been cancelled since 2008.

Nope, and it'll definitely stay this way for many years cause I can't imagine tower 5 rising before towers 2 and 3, which themselves will rise only in a year or two, maybe more

To clear things, the JP Morgan Investment Bank Building, (aka The Urinal) was cancelled in 2008.

The city, the Port Authority, the City Planning Commission, and the Community Board are still deciding what type of building should be built here, (i.e., commercial or residential or a mix of hotel and residential). The site is currently zoned for a strictly commercial building. Some people want that classification to stay, because once the WTC including is built out, Lower Manhattan will have very little room, if any room at all, for new office buildings. So that's a very good reason to leave this zoned for an office building and why I think it should remain zoned for commercial construction, however as we all know with 2 and 3 WTC, finding tenants in this economy is tough, so if it's reserved for an office building it could take 5-8 years to build.

The arguments behind rezoning the site to residential and/or hotel is that it will give the memorial and park a more 24/7 feel, and the building would likely rise much sooner than if it were to stay zoned for strictly commercial use.

Also, if a commercial building were to rise on this site it would most likely be in the 700 foot range. No way we're getting something taller than 4 WTC, but still something north of 200 meters. Hope that helps, and puts an end to people bumping this thread.
