No, just basement levels I think. I don't believe there is any underground parking on the new WTC site. Tower 4 will connect underground to Towers 3 and 2 and the Transportation Hub though.

B1 and B2 levels will be retail space. The area south and east of the tower is the Vechicle Security Center ramps (for the tour buses/trash/supply/delivery trucks for the towers and memorial).

The bankers trust building took a large chunk of the south tower, which destroyed a main exterior column from about half way up the building. The stress put on the remaining structure combined with toxic materials from the collapse and fires made it unsafe for occupation & it was slated for demolition. Several people have been killed during the demolition, and inspections finding bad situations and so on have caused several work stops. This will be the location of "5 world trade center".

Wow what a impressive picture, it shows the debris on all the roofs on the building and the massive damage the collapse has caused.

Yea, massive devastation. As you can see, there is also damage to other main exterior columns, for a while people thought it might come down too, but the "box" style construction saved it, if it had fewer internal columns it would likely have collapsed, bringing even more damage to buildings near it and totally destroying the parts of the subway line that were not smushed by the wtc.

The safety wrap makes it very hard to see the damage, but you can see there is no vertical bracing to the left of the elevator, that's where the hole is.

I hope 4 wtc's lobby has photos or something of the damage to the BTB, because it's the only building that day severely damaged that did not collapse, and was able to tell a graphic story of the violence of the day by remaining upright after the dust settled.

Yes, they were very lucky that it didnt come down. I was surprised when WTC 7 came down, that it didnt really destroy much around it either, as it came down on top of itself, much like WTC 1.

BTB would have fallen like a tree into the area now being made into 4 wtc.

Back on topic, how tall will this be visually compared to 7 wtc?

i have a question: what's going to be finished first? (or at least topped out)? 1 WTC or 4WTC? what do you guys say (who have been following the construction progress for years)?
