But still, I'm happy the construction of this building passed without problems and it turned out just like it was first presented to us, or actually even better. That's also another reason why I love this tower!
Actually, I think there was originally another floor in the podium in the renders on wtc.com, but that's the only thing I can think of.

Iirc 4WTc was originaly planned to be shorter and it got a slight height increase, though I could be wrong

Hopefully 2-3 WTC will began to rise, unlike the renders.

So what's the current progress for 4WTC? And does anyone know how long it will be until they place windows into that ugly gap at the corner?

Hard to say. One Bryant Park also experienced numerous broken windows due to accidents. It took a long time for them to be replaced. I think it even took well after the building opened if memory serves.

They could be fixed next week, next month or next year. Only those directly involved will know the answer.

Reminds me of the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
