Nice "freedom tower"!

The part which is cladded looks almost like a render from STR.

I was in Newark this weekend and all I could do was look out my hotel window at Lower Manhattan and think how great this area is going to look in the next few years.

I would say 4wtc is going to open late this year because they dont really have to do much left on this, they dont need to clad a base or add a spire to this tower so I believe it will be done by the summer or fall and be opened later this year.

Yeah, that's not going to happen. They still need to do all the interior work which will take at least another year.

"One World Trade" (not the freedom tower) will officially open in late 2013 but the last bits of interior work will continue for a short period after that into 2014.

No there's no way it will open this year, like he said there is still interior work to do.

And it doesn't matter what you call it, I still refer to it as the Freedom Tower and so does most people in our area and even the nation...

This looks ghoulish at night. It's hard to get decent pics with all the glare from lighting, but I tried!

This tower (#4 WTC) will look complete when the rest of the development is complete.
Until then, these updates are awesome!

I remember when people said they hated this building for its minimal design. Personally, I think it's one of the greatest in the city, and my 2nd favourite in the WTC complex. Beautiful.

Those are the same people who complained about the design of the original twin towers.

Now those people are the ones crying about not rebuilding those twin towers back on their exact bedrock locations!
