There's been some progress with the glass and it looks like the last row of steel has begun to go up. Topping off should be any day now!

Oh sweet, I thought this one had topped off on the previous row. Glad to see it reaching just a little bit higher!

America and USA are interchangeable terms.

The Americas or North America would be the separate terms you are hinting at.

Yeah thats the thing, you get confused when someone names their country whith the same name of their continent.
Im sure there are some people all over america (continent) like me who enjoyed the construction of the project. Congrats NY, i will visit some time this year hopefully

Here is what the WTC's will look like when 1WTC and 4WTC are done. (2WTC and 3WTC photoshoped out)

3WTC will be built, so the gap between tower 1 and 4 won't be that bad.

I actually think building Three will make more notorious the gap. Four's height combined with the distance it keeps from One makes it look like part of the surrounding buildings, leaving only One standing alone.

That is a good opinion, even though 4 WTC is much taller than the surroundings.

2 WTC will be the tower to finally fill that damned gap.

From that angle yes I have to agree WTC3 is going to make the gap even more obvious.

But from most other angles it is going to be much much much better than just having WTC1 and WTC4.
