I was also wondering about these formulations, I think I read somewhere that the part of Greenwich Street through the WTC site would be even closed for through-traffic..

I dunno, but if it should be closed why would they build it in the first place (the street I mean)?

To communicate the neighbourhood. Reopening Greenwich Street is one of the major features of the master plan, allowing the site to reintegrate into the grid of Lower Manhattan.

Great update. The cladded corner of 4WTC looks like a knife blade! You can see the huge difference glass makes.
