At first i thought this would be the most boring tower on the WTC site, but now it is taking shape i must say it turns out to be a beauty. I love the enormous mirror facade.

I'm a huge minimalism fan, so I never thought it was boring

I wish they would clad the base already. That orange net is a terrible eyesore.

More progress, the lower western wall is done, the fireproofing is going up another level, and I'm not sure what the top crane is holding.

Thanks, Otie!

Question: Why are some of the columns in the first (and the last) pic grey?

Does anyone have an idea when the cladding should reach the parapet?

Not corroded just yet. I don't think any of these beams has corrosion protection.

Sundered Greenwich Street Will Be Rejoined

Next year, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey expects to reopen the road between Liberty Street and Dey Street, in front of World Trade Center Towers 3 and 4. It expects to open the remainder of Greenwich Street, which runs in front of Tower 2 and the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, by 2016. The Towers will all carry Greenwich Street addresses, including the newly topped-off Tower 4 at 150 Greenwich Street.

With the opening up of Greenwich Street and the completion of the World Trade Center within sight, a number of developers are hoping to leverage the roadway’s newfound cachet. In addition to the newly named 255 Greenwich Street, several hotel and residential projects are in the works, including a hotel at 133 Greenwich Street and a retail and hotel development at the former American Stock Exchange building at 123 Greenwich Street.

“Greenwich Street is fast becoming the key north-south corridor it was for hundreds of years,” said Elizabeth H. Berger, the president of the Alliance For Downtown New York, a nonprofit organization that manages the area’s business improvement district. “It will knit the World Trade Center into the rest of Lower Manhattan,” she said, adding, “I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few years we start calling the towers by their Greenwich Street address.” Tower 3 will have the numeric address 175 Greenwich Street and Tower 2 will be 200 Greenwich Street.

I thought Greenwich Street was carefully monitored, which would make it a pain to drive through? Or is that just the street in front of 1WTC?
