Gorgeous

Look at this post from 4 years ago...priceless how different peoples' opinions can change once it is actually built.

About the design, mhhh I really don't know what to say. Surely it will be one massive building, but mhhhh it's bland. It has no character, it's just a box, which has a diagonal cut at a certain point and from that point it goes further up.

Why is cladding taking so long with 4WTC? I feel like it has been like this for about a month now

Probably, because they still need to install the elevators and escalators first. Just like what is happening at one WTC with the spire, that is propably why it also took a little while for the glass to come up there either on the sides.

I believe some panels were missing because the old crane was attached to the structure there, and others such as the one below the setback were damaged by a little crane accident.

Fantastic pics. I can see the hotel (and the floor!) where I stayed when I visited New York back in 2010.

Funny how close Beekman looks to be even though it's on the other side of downtown

Looks like one more office floor, and the mechanical floors/parapet left to clad. Plus the north face of the building where the hoist was.

I have no idea man. In the other pics it's better visible.

Well, with the last few pics I think we can see that I was right.

I wish they went with something a little less '80s sports center ' for the restrooms.

The lobby will look great, though.

Poor Mr. Silverstein looks so frail

Are those perimeter columns encased in concrete? They look massive.

I was a little worried that the floorplates in 4WTC would be a bit small. Nice to see my fears were unfounded, it's even bigger than the AXA Center where I work.

Yes, the 80ft span needed reinforced columns.

Must be the angle of that picture, but it looks like the floor to ceiling height is rather short? Anyways, I love the clean and sleek look of the interiors so far and that black marble looks amazing

@ chapelo: Do you work in the higher floors, than you must have great views of midtown.

The lobby here looks impressive.
